Wisconsin Dangerous Drugs Lawyer
Pharmaceutical companies have the legal responsibility to warn consumers of all the various health risks and hazards of taking their product. At Bye, Goff and Rohde, Ltd. we protect consumers suffering from illness, injury or loss of a loved one due to a dangerous drug.
The Food and Drug Administration will label each product and add Black Box warnings to those that come with serious health risks. If you have been made ill or experienced the loss of a loved one due to a dangerous drug, then you have the right to know what happened and who is responsible for this tragedy.
There have been countless drugs that have been recalled due to health risks and complications found in recent studies. Some of the more common dangerous drug lawsuits in recent months include:
- Birth control such as Yaz, Ocella, Yasmin and Ortho Evra
- Diabetes medication such as Avandia
- Painkillers such as Fentanyl,
- Weight loss drugs such as Hydroxcut,
- Antidepressants and mood stabilizers such as Paxil
- Acne medication such as Accutane
Other dangerous drugs that come with serious health warnings include:
Dangerous drugs can result in a number of serious illnesses and even fatality. Some drugs have been linked to an increased risk of heart attack, stroke, deep vein thrombosis, kidney and other organ damage, gastrointestinal disorders, headaches and chronic or acute pain. Others have a serious risk of overdose or dependence that should be addressed by the manufacturer. There have been countless instances where a dangerous drug has directly resulted in fatality.
What Choices do you have?
If you are suffering from an illness, medical condition or loss of a loved one after taking a dangerous drug, then you may be eligible for financial compensation for your suffering. The manufacturer should be held responsible for what has happened to you; after all, you trusted their medication and it has resulted in a loss of quality of life or, in some instances, a loss of life in general.
Financial compensation cannot stop the illness from happening but it can help with recovery and moving on with life. It can help pay for damages and losses including:
- Loss of income
- Loss of quality of life
- Equipment and medications
- Doctors consultations, specialists visits
- Emotional and physical support, therapy and rehabilitation
- Other damages
Fighting back against a large drug manufacturer can be overwhelming, especially when you are also facing the emotional strain and physical pain of an injury. At Bye, Goff and Rohde we will focus on the legal side of things so you can concentrate on moving forward with your life.
