Dangerous Drugs

We are exclusively a Plaintiff’s firm. Our attorneys handle any type of serious injury case. From injuries caused by dog bites to those caused by environmental toxins, we’ll fight for compensation from the responsible party. We can also answer your important questions about how personal injury cases work and what to expect.

The pharmaceutical industry is powerful. Though they manufacture drugs that may help patients, they are also concerned about the bottom line. As a result, some drugs make it through the pipeline before testing has been completed, or with side effects and health risks minimized or ignored. Drugs that have been aggressively marketed in this way are often the center of recalls, but for some patients, these recalls come too late. Dangerous health issues such as heart attacks, strokes, kidney and liver damage, diabetes, and even suicide may be the result of taking a defective pharmaceutical. Recent FDA recalls, or black box warnings – the strongest warning given before a recall is put into effect – have affected many drugs for many different conditions. If you or a loved one has been injured or sickened by taking something meant to help, please contact the drug lawsuit attorneys at Taylor Martino.

Avandia Lawsuits

Avandia has been linked to a variety of serious side effects, including fatal liver failure and cardiovascular problems. Avandia was introduced in 1999. Since that time Avandia has been linked to a variety of serious side effects, including fatal liver failure and cardiovascular problems. At its peak in 2006, 13.2 million people had taken Avandia. But by 2008, concerns over side effects had caused that number to fall to 4.6 million. Though these are only a few of the examples of the most egregious and timely defective pharmaceuticals, there are many more that can cause serious and irreparable harm, or even be lethal.

Heparin Lawsuits

Heparin is an anticoagulant given to millions of patients each year during cardiac surgery or kidney dialysis. In late 2007, Baxter International was forced to recall heparin due to tampering of the ingredients from China. However, hundreds of patients suffered severe allergic reactions and many died. Side effects include shortness of breath, dizziness, nausea, rapid heart rate, low blood pressure and death.

Pfizer Lipitor Lawsuits

Lipitor is a drug used to lower cholesterol and first introduced in 1996. It quickly grew to become one of the most widely used brand-name medications in the world, generating billions of dollars in revenue for its manufacturer, Pfizer. However, it appears that the drug maker failed to adequately disclose the risk of diabetes as a side effect of Lipitor. Information has emerged to suggest that Pfizer knew or should have known Lipitor users develop diabetes at an alarming rate, and lawsuits allege that Pfizer should have provided better warnings about the potential risk and the importance of monitoring blood-glucose levels if the medication is used. Thousands of individuals, who were otherwise in a relatively healthy condition, as a result of taking Lipitor may now be suffering from Type 2 Diabetes.

If proper warnings had been provided, individuals would have had the opportunity to decide not to use Lipitor, or they could have reduced their risk of developing diabetes by closely monitoring their blood-glucose levels to see if the drug was affecting them. Individuals may be entitled to financial compensation as a result of Pfizer’s decision to place its desire for profits before consumers’ safety.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT)

Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) products, like Androgel, Testim and Axiron for men have been linked to an increased risk of death, heart attack and stroke. If you or someone you know suffered any of these injuries after receiving Testosterone Replacement Therapy, contact the attorneys at Taylor Martino, P.C.
