Our past years of representing insurance companies taught us a thing or two about how they work behind the scenes. Let our experience work for you.
Many Americans depend on prescription and over-the-counter drugs to eliminate and manage a myriad of illnesses and injuries. Fortunately, most medicinal drugs must pass rigorous tests before they are released to the public, and companies are required to disclose any dangerous side effects. However, some companies prioritize profit over safety, and pharmaceutical companies have been known to knowingly release dangerous drugs onto the market. If you or someone you care about suffered injury from a drug with undisclosed side effects, a Metairie dangerous drugs lawyer may be able to help you get the justice you deserve. In addition to helping you file suit, a dedicated personal injury attorney could also work with you to collect evidence of damages, determine what you could seek compensation for and how much, and to protect your rights.

Price McNamara began his law practice in 1990 representing insurance companies.
In 1995, Mr. McNamara founded McNamara Law Offices, where he represents people across the U.S. who are wrongfully denied long-term disability insurance, life insurance, and accidental death insurance benefits, with special focus on ERISA claims and lawsuits.
His is a member of the Louisiana and Texas Bars, with office locations by appointment only in Baton Rouge, Metairie, and Houston. He lives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana with his wife and their three children.
“Price showed no fear. The only thing I can use to actively describe what I saw that day in court was someone standing there protecting our family and fighting for them at the same time…he took control of the situation and was truthful.”
“It was a smooth process. I didn’t have to guess about what was going to happen next…I was reassured that he was going to do the right thing. I was reassured that he was looking out for me.”
“He was ready to fight for me…I felt like he had my best interest in mind. It wasn’t just for the paycheck at the end.”
“Price worked for an insurance company in the past and now he’s working against the insurance company so it was because of that we trusted that he knew how an insurance company worked and how to fight them.”
“I feel blessed that I can help turn things around for my clients who have been denied that piece of mind of financial stability and we make sure that the insurance company and the court realize that these are actual people, these are families that are suffering greatly.”

Our client, a young husband with two children, sustained closed-head brain injury as a result of an automobile accident. The at-fault driver’s insurance company initially refused to pay, but shortly before trial, agreed to pay the entirety of its insurance policy limits of $2,000,000.
Our client was a floor hand and Jones Act seaman who suffered a shoulder injury while working for Blake Offshore, LLC. Suit was filed in federal court in New Orleans. Blake and its insurance company offered relatively little in settlement, so the case proceeded to trial.

While most drugs are relatively safe to take as directed, some can cause great harm and even death. Prior to the release of a prescription drug, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires pharmaceutical companies to subject the drug to several tests and examinations. If there are any noticeable side effects, the pharmaceutical company must adequately warn the public.
If the drug is simply too dangerous to release, the company may not release the drug until it can be made safe. Occasionally, though, a drug is only deemed dangerous after it is released on the market. When this occurs, the pharmaceutical company must recall the drug and warn patients about potential dangers, but this may not happen soon enough to prevent patients from suffering preventable injuries and losses.
Our number-one goal is getting you and your family back to financial security as soon as possible.

Some pharmaceutical companies have been known to engage in unsafe marketing and production practices. Many companies manage to release unsafe drugs to the public by hiding unfavorable test results from the FDA and consumers, while others refuse to recall unsafe pharmaceutical products until it is too late.
To make matters worse, many pharmaceutical companies encourage physicians and other medical professionals to prescribe drugs for “off-label” purposes. Off-label prescribing is a dangerous practice that involves prescribing a drug to treat a medical condition it has not been proven or tested to treat.
Pharmaceutical companies are aware of the dangers of this practice, but they still encourage their representatives to push off-label prescribing nonetheless. If a patient gets hurt as a result of this behavior, a Metairie dangerous drugs lawyer could represent them in any civil lawsuit they wish to file in response.
Over the years, many drugs have been proven to be dangerous or cause deadly side effects. Many of these drugs were immensely popular—and some still are even today—but when they were initially released, they caused numerous patients to suffer unnecessary damages. Some particularly infamous dangerous drugs include:
The drugs listed above often caused patients to develop additional—and sometimes life-threatening—medical conditions beyond the condition they were intended to treat. Some of the drugs even proved deadly when they adversely interacted with other types of drugs. In most cases, the drugs’ manufacturers did not warn physicians and other prescribers that such reactions could occur.
If a patient suffers harm to a dangerous drug, a dangerous drugs lawyer in Metairie may be able to provide them with the legal guidance they need to file a successful suit against the manufacturer of the dangerous drug. Depending on the circumstances, they may alternatively be able to negotiate a favorable settlement before the case goes to court.
Dangerous drugs have no place on the market, and pharmaceutical companies should do everything in their power to prevent them from harming patients. If a pharmaceutical company knowingly releases a dangerous drug, they should be held financially and legally accountable for their negligence.
If you were harmed by a dangerous drug, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering. Contact a Metairie dangerous drugs lawyer today to schedule a consultation and discuss your case.
