Drug Injury Claims We Handle
Our drug injury lawyers have the legal experience and resources to handle a variety of claims, such as:
- Abilify® Compulsive Behavior Risk
Studies have shown a potential link between taking the antipsychotic drug Abilify and damaging pathological behaviors, including compulsive gambling and hypersexuality.
- Antidepressant Birth Defects
Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs), a commonly prescribed class of antidepressant drugs, have been linked to severe and life-threatening birth defects when used by pregnant mothers.
- Blood Thinner Injuries
Patients taking newer blood thinner medications may face an increased risk of severe bleeding. Certain anticoagulant drugs, such as Xarelto® and Eliquis®, contain no counteracting drugs to stop bleeding once it begins, which may lead to serious or fatal health complications.
- Diabetes Drugs Linked to Cancer
Certain popular Type 2 diabetes drugs have been linked to serious health problems, including pancreatic cancer.
- Heartburn Drugs Linked to Kidney Disease
Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), a class of prescription heartburn drugs, are used to reduce acid in a patient’s stomach. But many of the most popular PPIs have been linked to serious health risks, including chronic kidney disease.
- Invokana® and Invokamet®
Patients taking the Type 2 diabetes drugs, Invokana and Invokamet, may face an increased risk of ketoacidosis—a condition where the body produces high levels of acid in the blood.
- Low T Heart Attacks
Testosterone therapy treatments are marketed to men as ways to boost energy levels, sex drive, and muscle mass. But AndroGel® and other testosterone gels, patches, and injections may increase the risk of heart attack, stroke, and other cardiovascular injuries.
An FDA advisory committee concluded taking the prescription Type 2 diabetes drug Onglyza® (saxagliptin) can increase the risk of heart failure—a fatal condition.
Used to treat a variety of mental and mood disorders, the antipsychotic drug Risperdal® may lead to the development of abnormally large male breasts in young male patients.
- Stevens-Johnson Syndrome
Often reported in conjunction with severe drug reactions, Stevens-Johnson syndrome can cause permanent scarring, body temperature regulation issues, blindness and death when left untreated.
- Taxotere® Permanent Hair Loss
Taxotere®, an injectable concentrate used during chemotherapy treatment for cancer, has been linked to permanent hair loss in female breast cancer survivors.
- Viagra® Skin Cancer
Male patients who take Viagra® just one time may face double the risk of developing melanoma skin cancer compared to men who have never taken the drug.
Xarelto®, a blood thinning drug manufactured by Bayer, has been linked to severe bleeding, strokes, and blood clots in certain types of patients. In the event of major bleeding, there is no method to counteract the effects of the drug, which can result in severe injury or death.
Zofran is sometimes prescribed to treat severe morning sickness in pregnant women—an off-label, or unapproved, use. However, data indicates that the drug may lead to birth defects in children.
