Did Dangerous Drugs Or Medications Cause An Injury?

Companies that manufacture medications and pharmaceutical products have a duty to make sure that their products are not unreasonably dangerous for the consumer by following the proper standard of care and using appropriate technology to design, manufacture, inspect and test them.

When drug companies and medical personnel are negligent and violate the standard of care required of them, resulting in a patient's injury or death, the lawyers at Wise Morrissey Kaveny LLC are prepared to file products liability and/or medical malpractice suits for people in Illinois. We aggressively pursue compensation for economic losses, medical care, and pain and suffering.

Pharmaceutical companies can be held responsible for creating and distributing defective drugs or for failing to properly research a drug's potential risks before placing it on the market. Similarly, physicians can be held responsible for prescribing drugs without adequately accounting for harmful side effects, or without assuring proper dosage and frequency of use.

Some common dangerous drugs include:

  • Blood thinners
  • Antidepressants
  • Birth control
  • Anticonvulsants
  • Cholesterol medications
