Defective & Dangerous Drugs

At Leitner Varughese Warywoda, we understand the devastating impact that defective drugs can have on individuals and their families. Our experienced team of attorneys is dedicated to representing those who have suffered harm as a result of unsafe or improperly manufactured medications. If you or a loved one has been affected by a defective drug, we are here to help you seek justice and pursue the compensation you deserve.

Our Approach:

Types of Defective Drug Cases We Handle:

  1. Dangerous Side Effects: If you have experienced severe or unexpected side effects from a prescription or over-the-counter medication, you may have a defective drug claim. We handle cases involving adverse reactions, organ damage, birth defects, and other serious health complications.

  2. Manufacturing Defects: When errors occur during the manufacturing process, resulting in contaminated or impure drugs, the consequences can be life-threatening. Our team investigates cases involving improper quality control, contamination, mislabeling, and packaging defects.

  3. Failure to Warn: Pharmaceutical companies have a duty to provide adequate warnings about potential risks and side effects associated with their products. If you were not properly informed about the potential dangers of a medication, and it caused harm, we can help you pursue a failure to warn claim.

  4. Off-Label Use: If a drug manufacturer promotes or encourages the use of their product for purposes not approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), and you suffered harm as a result, our attorneys can assist you in seeking compensation for damages.

  5. Recalls and Mass Torts: In cases where a defective drug poses significant risks to the public, recalls and mass tort actions may be necessary to protect the rights of affected individuals. We have the resources and expertise to handle complex litigation involving large-scale defective drug claims.
