Medications, both over-the-counter and prescription, are supposed to help you through illness or disease. Their benefits should be greater than any risk they pose to your health. Unfortunately, certain dangerous and defective drugs make it to market, ultimately causing injury and death in some cases. Our experienced Newburgh product liability lawyer can tell you whether you can pursue compensation for your injury. For a free case evaluation, please call Charles N. Rock at 845-566-9200.

Your Defective Drug Claim

Over the years, many drugs have become the focus of defective drug cases, such as:

  • Ortho Evra
  • OxyContin
  • Cytotec
  • Vioxx
  • Bextra

Your defective drug claim can be based on one or more of the three types of product liability:

Improper warnings, instructions and marketing: If the warnings, instructions and recommendations for use of a certain drug are incomplete, misleading or false, then you may be injured as a result.

Defective manufacture: A defect can arise in the process of making and manufacturing medications. Such cases may involve drugs that were tainted or contained incorrect dosages.

Dangerous side effects: Some drugs cause very serious side effects, such as heart attack or blood clots, that far outweigh the benefits of taking the drug. Although the possibility of side effects are expected for most medications, when you did not know of the risk and are injured as a result, then you may have a defective drug claim to make.

You need an experienced attorney to handle this type of case. Defective drug claims involve intimidating and powerful pharmaceutical companies, and you need our lawyer, Charles Rock, who won’t back down to this type of defendant and who knows how to determine if a defect or problem with the medication is what caused your serious injury.
