Dangerous Drugs

Cleveland Dangerous & Defective Drug & Medical Device Attorneys

Defective drugs and medical devices have caused devastating physical injuries to thousands of people—even death. Consumers rely on Food and Drug Administration (FDA) investigations to help protect them from drugs that do more harm than good, without realizing that the understaffed, underfunded and overworked FDA relies largely on pharmaceutical manufacturers' own information before approving a drug and its warning labels. When dangerous drugs are released to the public, they end up causing serious side effects and other injuries.

Contact the legal team at Spangenberg Shibley & Liber to discuss the circumstances of your potential drug injury claim, or a loved one's injury or death that may be linked to a prescription drug. Not all side effects mean the product was "dangerous" in the legal sense of being defective. Pharmaceutical drugs are inherently dangerous. But when the manufacturer knew or should have known about harmful side effects that it did not convey to the FDA or doctors, there may be liability.
