Red Bank Prescription Drug Injury Attorneys
Experienced Monmouth County, NJ Medical Malpractice Lawyers Secure Compensation for Clients Who Sustain Dangerous Drug-Related Injuries and Illnesses
Drug makers can be held financially liable for serious injuries and fatalities that result from the use of their products. Even if a drug has not been recalled by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), it may have a “black box” warning label indicating there are serious, life-threatening dangers associated with the drug in question. At the personal injury law office of Drazin and Warshaw, P.C., our attorneys work closely with medical experts and investigators in holding pharmaceutical companies financially liable for dangerous prescription drugs. We review company documents, test trial results, consider recommendations from senior and independent scientists, and interview witnesses. We identify attempts to play down dangers or manipulate data, as well as internal company communications that include warnings pertaining to a drug.

Foreseeability and Liability — Holding Drug Companies Accountable
Drug companies conduct test trials in order to determine the effectiveness and safety of new drugs. While not readily admitted to, in some cases a drug company will write a paper establishing the effectiveness and safety of a drug and ask a researcher to sign their name to it. In a surprising number of cases, drug manufacturers are aware of certain dangers associated with a drug but choose to downplay those dangers and bring a drug to market. Merck’s Vioxx is a good example: Merck’s own internal documents warned of an increased risk for heart attack associated with the drug.
Here, the issue is one of foreseeability: did a drug manufacturer have information available to them that indicated a foreseeable danger associated with its drug? Our attorneys review the evidence and establish a clear pattern of foreseeability that implicates drug makers in downplaying dangerous drugs in a cynical bid to protect their bottom line.
