Defective Drug Side Effect Lawsuits

Florida Defective Drug Lawyers

Have you been injured by a defective drug?  For more than 40 years, the Florida personal injury lawyers at Gilman Law LLP have successfully represented victims of dangerous drug side effects, adverse drug reactions and life-threatening drug interactions.  If you or someone you love were injured or died as a result of a defective medication, the makers of that drug may be liable for your pain suffering.  Filing a defective drug lawsuit could enable you and your family to recover compensation for medical bills, lost wages, emotional distress, and even wrongful death.

Gilman Law LLP’s long and successful track record of representing victims of dangerous and defective medications is due, in part, to our commitment to standing up for people injured as a result of the negligence of large, powerful corporations. We also have the experience and resources required to pursue large, complex cases.  The Florida defective drug lawyers at Gilman Law LLP offer free legal consultations to anyone injured as the result of a drug side effect.  To learn more about your rights, we urge you to contact the Florida defective lawyers at Gilman Law LLP today.

Every year, millions of people are seriously injured or killed by taking prescription drugs, over the counter medications, dietary supplements, weight loss products and other dangerous medications.  According to one study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, more than 100,000 adverse reactions to prescription drugs are reported annually.

The Florida defective drug lawyers at Gilman Law LLP are currently investigating injuries and deaths related to the following medications:

  • Accutane

Some defective drugs make it to market because the U.S. Food & Drug Administration was misled by self-serving studies conducted by the pharmaceutical companies. Other drugs may be safe if manufactured properly, but become contaminated during the manufacturing process with deadly infectious agents or dangerous chemicals. While defective drugs are sometimes recalled from the market, by the time a drug recall is issued, thousands of people may have already been injured.  Far too often, dangerous and defective drugs are never recalled, and are allowed to remain on the market, despite the risks they pose to patients.

If you or someone you love suffered a serious injury because of a medication, we urge you to contact the Florida defective drug lawyers at Gilman Law LLP.  Our personal injury lawyers have extensive experience litigating and resolving claims in Florida and throughout the U.S. concerning injuries caused by prescription and over-the-counter medications.   Filing a defective drug injury lawsuit may be the only way you and your family will receive the compensation and answers you deserve.
