Injury Lawyers for Victims of Dangerous Pharmaceuticals in Rolling Meadows and Cook County, Illinois

When your doctor prescribes you a particular medication to address a medical condition, it is understandable that you would trust the medication to be effective for its intended purposes. While there may be side effects, you should not have to worry about whether the drug is truly safe. Unfortunately, however, this is not always the case. Defective and dangerous drugs are all too common problems, and thousands of patients each year suffer injuries and even death as a result.

At Newland & Newland, LLP, we understand how a dangerous or defective drug can affect your life, and we have the knowledge and experience to help you hold negligent drug makers and prescribers accountable. Our lawyers have been serving clients in Northern Illinois for nearly three decades, and we are ready to put our proven approach to work for you and your family.

What is a Defective Drug?

A defective drug is any type of medication or pharmaceutical product that causes physical, emotional, or psychological injury. Such drugs may be available only by prescription or sold over the counter. A drug could be found defective if there is a problem in the formulation, issues with incomplete labeling, or inadequate warnings about side effects or potential risks.

Drug makers are often in a race against one another to launch the next "miracle" drug for a particular condition. As a result, the required testing process may be shortened or otherwise compromised in order to get the drug to market as soon as possible. While the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible for approving new pharmaceutical products, it is the manufacturers who present testing records and other documentation to the FDA for approval. Such records do not always reflect the truth, however, and pharmaceutical companies have knowingly sought approval for drugs they knew to be dangerous.

It is also not uncommon for a drug to be on the market for quite some time-years, in many cases-before the true dangers associated with the drug are realized. In cases like these, the problems might not have been evident during initial testing, but long-term use uncovered a new set of concerns. If the side effects or risks associated with a particular drug outweigh the available benefits, a drug may be considered defective.
