We can help victims of Dangerous Drugs

To have a medical condition complicated as a result of taking a drug that your doctor has told you will ease or cure your condition can leave you feeling angry and confused. But still, each year prescription drugs are taken off the market because the risks it poses to the public far outweighs its benefits. Unfortunately, you may have been injured as a result. You may be dealing with high medical bills or lost wages as a result of your injuries. Rubenstein Law is here to help.

You don’t have to fight the drug companies alone.

According to the FDA, the number of Class I prescription drug recalls has skyrocketed in the last few years. Prescription drug cases are extensive and complicated. Not only is there manufacturer liability but the doctor, as well as the hospital, may be liable. The process to bring those accountable to justice can be complex and require a lot of time and resources. We can serve your needs, show you your options and protect your rights. Pharmaceutical companies have endless resources and you should not have to fight this alone. These companies make billions of dollars each year on prescription drug sales. Because of these high profits, unfortunately, sometimes the methods these companies use to sell their medication can conflict with the best interests of the patients who need them. There are many ways these dangerous drugs get distributed to the public. For instance:

  • Off-label promotions
  • Payments to doctors to promote a medication
  • Poor manufacturing practices

Prescription medications are not the only products that can be recalled. Other recalls include medical devices, tires, cars, airbags, consumer products and more.

Do not feel like you have to struggle through this alone. We are here to help you. If you or a loved one has suffered an unexpected or adverse reaction to a drug or medication please contact our office immediately (1-800-FL-LEGAL) for a free consultation.
