Birmingham Personal Injury AND Mass Tort Claim Lawyers

Dangerous Medication Lawyers

Personal Injury Lawyers Representing People Harmed by Dangerous and Defective Medications Nationwide

Pharmaceutical companies are responsible for providing prescription medications that are safe for consumers. Drugs must meet strict FDA requirements for safety before a drug can be released to the market. Despite these precautions, dangerous and defective drugs continue to cause serious injury and even death.

Experienced Dangerous Drug Attorneys

If you or a member of your family was injured by a dangerous or defective medication, you have a right to obtain financial compensation for the damages you have suffered. Not every law firm is equipped to represent clients in complex pharmaceutical litigation. Salter Ferguson, LLC has the resources and skill to take on powerful drug companies and win.

We represent clients who have been harmed by a broad range of medications, including:

  • Xarelto and Pradaxa: These blood thinners cause uncontrollable bleeding and strokes.
  • Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs): Nexium, Prilosec and other PPIs are prescribed to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease (GRD) but cause kidney disease, renal failure and heart damage.
  • Abilify: An antipsychotic medication linked to obsessive behavior, especially compulsive gambling.
  • Benicar: A blood pressure drug, Benicar can cause serious gastrointestinal disorders.
  • Taxotere: This chemotherapy drug causes permanent hair loss as well as other side effects.
