Defective Drug Lawsuits

The attorneys of Marc Whitehead & Associates are currently handling drug lawsuits involving the following pharmaceuticals:

Zofran: This anti-nausea medication is linked to fatal and serious side effects including heart defects, cleft palate and lip, neural tube defects, deformities of the brain and limbs, fetal growth restrictions, kidney defects and death.

Xarelto: A prescription blood thinner found to cause heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism, internal hemorrhaging, bleeding of the brain, and gastrointestinal bleeding.

Risperdal: Prescribed for treating cases of schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and irritability associated with autism in children, this medicine has caused male breast enlargement (gynecomastia) in adolescent boys.

Testosterone Therapy: While pharmaceutical companies enjoy billion dollar sales for their testosterone replacement supplements, “Low T” drugs can have serious heart-related side effects including stroke, heart attack and death.

Viagra: One of the most prescribed drugs in history, Viagra is used for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED). Yet this drug is now linked to the deadly skin cancer, melanoma. Personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits against Pfizer, the manufacturer of Viagra, are currently being investigated across the U.S.

About Pharmaceutical Drug Lawsuits

Time and again, pharmaceutical companies begin drug studies and learn of health dangers and side effects, but do not warn the public of potential health risks and hazards their drugs pose to consumers.

The latest blockbuster drugs are often heavily marketed and falsely advertised, leaving consumers with a partial or misleading understanding of the medicine and the risks it may present.

From dispensing medicines that are not properly manufactured or have questionable safety profiles, to marketing medications for uses not approved by the Food and Drug Administration, pharmaceutical companies put patients and consumers at risk of serious side effects including

  • Brain damage
  • Birth defects
  • Heart defects
  • Liver damage
  • Kidney damage
  • Physical deformities
  • Bleeding and hemorrhaging
  • Cancer
  • Death
