Defective Drugs

Injured by a defective drug?

If you’re injured by a defective drug, YOU NEED A LAWYER.

Why do I need a lawyer if I’ve been injured by a defective drug?

You need a lawyer because big-pharma is prepared to fight to ensure you don’t get the COMPENSATION YOU DESERVE. In fact, unfortunately, the largest and most powerful pharmaceutical companies build potential lawsuits into their business and profit models. In today’s world, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that corporations put PROFITS OVER PEOPLE and the pharmaceutical industry is well-known to do just that. Often, pharmaceutical companies weigh the cost of defending lawsuits and paying out judgements and settlements against the profits to be made from making and marketing potentially harmful drugs. Therefore, if you or a loved one are hurt or killed by a defective drug you need a lawyer to FIGHT FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY to ensure you’re recognized for what you are, a person with rights – not just a part of their profits.

What is a defective drug?

A defective drug is a drug that poses greater health risks than health benefits and harms or injures the patient who takes the drug.

Who can I sue for my injuries caused by a defective drug? Who you can sue for a defective drug injury is determined by who is liable, or legally responsible, for causing the injuries you suffered as a result of the defective drug. In many cases there are multiple parties, or defendants, who can be sued for your injuries. For example, the drug maker or manufacturer, drug distributor, doctor or pharmacist may all be liable for the injuries you suffer as a result of a defective drug. The answer to who you can sue for your injuries in a defective drug case are therefore fact-dependent and your lawyer should investigate your specific case to determine the proper party or parties to sue. Who can sue for injuries caused by a defective drug? Generally speaking, the person who was injured by the defective drug has a right to bring a lawsuit for the injuries and other damages they suffered as a result of taking the defective drug. Additionally, should the defective drug kill the victim, the victim’s surviving family members most often have a right to sue over the death caused by the defective drug. See the Wrongful Death Practice Area section of this website for further information on Wrongful Death Actions.
What defective products are currently the topic of lawsuits or litigation? Unfortunately, new drugs are made the topic of lawsuits on an all too frequent basis. Often, drug manufacturers, drug distributors, doctors, and pharmacists know, or should have known, of the likelihood of injury to users of the defective drug but fail to adequately warn patients of those potential dangers.

The lawyers and professionals at MORE 2 YOU LAW, PC, are motivated to get the highest settlement or judgment possible.

Some defective drugs that are the topic of current lawsuits or litigation include:


Acetaminophen lawsuits have been filed against the manufacturers of medicines or drugs containing acetaminophen alleging that the manufacturers continued to market the medicines to pregnant women despite evidence that prenatal and shortly after birth exposure to acetaminophen could cause autism and ADHD in the to-be or recently born child.


Elmiron lawsuits have been filed alleging that long-term exposure to Elmiron can cause an eye disorder known as maculopathy which affects the macula, or central part of the retina, and is a leading cause of blindness.

Nexium & Prilosec – Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs)

Nexium and Prilosec lawsuits have been filed alleging that long-term use of the drugs increases the likelihood that the patient will suffer from heart damage, renal failure, acute kidney injury, bone fractures, and stroke.


Tepezza lawsuits have been filed alleging that patients who received the drug to treat thyroid eye disease, or TED, sustained hearing loss, tinnitus or ringing in the ears.


Valsartan lawsuits have been filed claiming that batches of Valsartan were contaminated with cancer-causing substances NDMA (N- nitrosodimethylamine), NDEA (N- nitrosodiethlamine), and NMBA (N- methylnitrosobutyric acid) and that exposure to those chemicals in patients who took Valsartan resulted in liver, stomach, kidney or intestinal cancer.


Xeljanz lawsuits claim that the use of Xeljanz can cause severe cardiac events, such as heart attacks and strokes, as well as blood clot complications, such as deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolisms.
