What is a Pharmaceutical Lawsuit?
In the pharmaceutical world, countless patients have faced significant harm from dangerous and defective drugs or medical devices. If you’ve experienced such an issue, there’s hope! An attorney with knowledge of this law area can help protect your rights.
Your pharmaceutical lawyer has the expertise to fight these cases, including individual cases, class action lawsuits, and mass tort litigations.
But understanding the complaints that can form the basis of a pharmaceutical lawsuit is essential for planning your strategy if you have been wronged.
Here are some of the lawsuits our practice takes on:
- • Design Defects – The nature of a medical device or other product that is defective and based on poor or unsafe designs.
- • Manufacturing Defects – Negligence at the manufacturing level that has led to an unsafe drug or medical device. These cases can include a human error or contamination.
- • Failure to Warn – The pharmaceutical company fails to warn of dangers and defects once they become aware of them in a timely manner.
Within these three categories, a pharmaceutical injury lawyer can help you seek the justice you deserve. When it comes to pharmaceuticals, our law firm supports patients and families who have sustained life-changing injuries, emotional distress, and even death. From improper marketing to a failure of clinical studies in the big world of pharma, our lawyers are there to fight in your corner.
If you are going to pursue a successful legal claim, you need pharmaceutical attorneys that can leverage their expertise in a range of areas.
At Audet & Partners, we understand your rights and how they have been violated. With the help of a trustworthy pharmaceutical lawyer, you can maximize your compensation.
The attorneys at Audet & Partners, LLP are dedicated to litigation involving dangerous pharmaceuticals and have collectively over a hundred years of representing injured persons and their family members. Our attorneys and staff on the firm’s pharmaceutical team are devoted to maximizing recovery for each and every one of our clients represented in ‘bad drug’ claims. Our firm employs the latest technology to advance our clients’ cases, from electronic record ordering to using a shared case program we have developed over time that allows us to represent groups of clients without losing our important one on one contact with individuals. In addition, our firm does not ‘collect’ clients for the sake of having more clients, but just the opposite: we carefully vet our potential clients, including clients referred to us by other firms. As a result, we are able to force large pharmaceutical companies and their well-financed defense firms to offer top dollar in any settlement based on the circumstances of our clients case.
Unlike many other firms, we do not simply refer our cases to other firms. Instead, we internally litigate the cases and call on select co-counsel only when of overall benefit to our clients. A review of our firm’s resume establishes Audet and Partners, LLP prominence among top-tier litigation and trial firms in the United States for dangerous pharmaceutical litigation. Over the past decade, we have been heavily involved in precedent setting cases (and multi-million dollar recoveries for our clients), including the Vioxx, Bextra and Transvaginal Mesh litigation. Our record speaks for itself and if you compare what our firm offers and what we can accomplish, you and your family can rest assured that Audet & Partners, LLP will aggressively prosecute your case from Day One.
If you believe that you or a loved one may have been injured as a result of a defective pharmaceutical, it is important that you retain an experienced lawyer promptly so that action may be initiated. At Audet & Partners, LLP, we work together with the nation’s leading experts in the fields of science and medicine to promptly investigate the defective product giving rise to your claim.
Too often in their efforts to rush new drugs onto the market, pharmaceutical manufacturers ignore safe practices and fail to conduct adequate testing that could have revealed the dangers of their products. In certain cases, drug manufacturers and medical device makers are aware of dangers associated with their products before ever placing them on the market.
Approval of a product by the FDA does not immunize the manufacturer from liability. Deaths and injuries can occur despite use of the drugs in accordance with manufacturers’ warnings and instructions. Some are the direct result of defective warnings and labels which fail to adequately warn of drug interactions, adverse reactions and serious side effects. Failure to provide instructions for safe use and/or withholding information regarding contraindications or preexisting conditions can increase the risk of injury. Others are caused by drugs which are recalled or withdrawn from the market, which were never safe to begin with, and which would not have been approved but for the manufacturer misleading or withholding material data from the FDA.
