Legal Services for Chicago Bad Drug Recall Cases

While many medications that are now available for illnesses or diseases that were at one time incurable, many of the new drugs in the medical marketplace can be effective but highly dangerous. Instead of restoring a patient’s health or curing a disease, these “miracle” drugs cause serious side effects and severe adverse reactions. This is often the result of the drug maker rushing the medication through the FDA approval process in the hopes of generating huge profits before the dangerous drug defects have been identified.

Our team of dedicated personal injury attorneys specializes in medical malpractice, product liability, and wrongful death cases where victims have suffered serious injuries or lost their lives prematurely. We have been successful in resolving cases that involve bad drugs and defective medical devices that include:

Illinois Bad Drug Recall Case Attorneys Are Ready to Help

Although many pharmaceutical medications are unsafe they are still brought to the medical marketplace with serious side effects even though the manufacturer knows there are problems like:

  • A design defect or manufacturing mistake,
  • Falsified research results,
  • Insufficient or inadequate drug testing,
  • Drug representatives are promoting the product to be used for “off-label” procedures,
  • The manufacture’s failure to list proper warnings that identify potential side effects, recall notices, interactions, and adverse reactions.

Our reputable Chicago dangerous drug law firm uses a successful results-oriented legal approach to build our clients’ cases and present evidence to their successful conclusion.
