Drug Recall

During the course of the past century we have become more dependent on pharmaceutical products than ever before. We rely on them to help us cope with headaches caused by a stressful workday and to conquer life-threatening infections as well as virtually any affliction in between.

We use them so frequently, in fact, that we tend to forget that the reason they are so effective is that they contain incredibly powerful chemicals and very specific combinations of those chemicals. When drug manufacturers fail to ensure that the products that they are releasing into the marketplace are safe, the consequences can be tragic.

If you have been sickened or lost a loved one due to the use of a pharmaceutical product that has been recalled, then we can help you pursue the financial compensation that you are due.

Major Drug Recalls

Some of the drug recalls that are issued are handled voluntarily by drug manufacturers who have learned of a possible problem and are hoping to withdraw a product before too many people suffer. Others, however, are compelled by the United States Food and Drug Administration. Regrettably, many times a pharmaceutical company is so eager to profit from its new discovery that it cuts important corners in the rush to begin selling it to ill patients, in some cases even ignoring their own internal research which suggests that serious health problems are likely.

Major drug recalls have been issued in the past for the following:

  • Tylenol
  • Dexatrim
  • Fen-phen
  • Vioxx
  • Zelnorm
