Attorney for Dangerous Drug Cases in the San Fernando Valley

Have you been injured due to prescription or over-the-counter drugs? Call (818) 783-8446.

When we take over-the-counter medication, or even prescription medication, we like to believe that they will heal us and help us to live healthier and happier lives. The unfortunate truth is that this isn't always so. According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, there are approximately 77,000 injuries reported every year as the result of dangerous drugs. Statistics show that the average American will most likely fill up to 12 prescription medications every year. What is scary is just how often patients are prescribed the wrong medication or they are prescribed drugs that are dangerous to take at the same time. Are you searching for a lawyer for a dangerous drug claim in the San Fernando Valley or anywhere else in Southern California?

Backed by more than three decades' experience, my firm has already recovered more than $65 million for clients.

Here at the Law Offices of Joel Parker, I believe that negligent doctors, pharmacists and drug manufacturers should be held accountable for any dangerous drug accidents that result in injury. Drug makers are expected to exercise a certain level of reasonable care when designing and testing their product and when they fail to do so, they could face legal repercussions. It is not your responsibility as the patient to pay for a hospital visit that was sparked due to a defective pill or medicinal injection.

Speak with a personal injury lawyer from my firm today to discuss the details of your drug injury claim.

Drug Recalls and Defective Medical Devices

Drug manufacturing companies are legally responsible for adequately testing their product before releasing it to the market. If a drug is not proven properly or it has some sort of defect, hundreds of thousands of people could be injured as a result. Drug makers are also accountable for fully disclosing any side-effects or possibly dangerous health hazards on the label. If they fail to do so, they could be held liable for any damages if consumers are harmed or injured by their product. Many times the side-effects do not surface until months or even years down the road, and after thousands of people are already suffering as a result. Lately, there have many class action lawsuits made against the makers of Yaz and Yazmin for this very reason. The FDA has since issued warnings on these products and other dangerous drugs. In severe cases they even recall the product completely.

Some of the recalled drug and defective medical device claims that I handle here at the firm include:

  • Avandia
  • Bextra
  • Celebrex
  • Depo-Provera
  • Digitek
  • Gardasil
  • Granuflo
  • Humira
  • Meningitis
  • Mirena IUD
  • Ortho Evra
  • Paxil
  • Praxada
  • Provera
  • Transvaginal Mesh
  • Yaz/Yasmin
  • Zoloft

This is not a full comprehensive list. The drugs and medical devices listed above have been known to cause serious injuries including strokes, heart attacks, kidney failure, blindness and other terrible side effects. If you are injured as result of any prescription or over-the-counter medication, please do not hesitate to contact my personal injury firm.
