Long Term Disability / Life /
Accidental Death / ERISA

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.

Metairie Dangerous Drugs Lawyer

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.

How Does a Dangerous Drug Make it to the Market?

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.

Off-Label Prescribing

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.

A History of Dangerous Drugs

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:

  • Viagra
  • Lipitor
  • Zoloft
  • Risperdal
  • Pradaxa

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.

Calling a Metairie Dangerous Drugs Attorney

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.
