Defective Drug Lawyers in New York

Holding Negligent Drug Manufacturers Accountable

When you take a pharmaceutical drug, you have a right to expect that it has been adequately tested, that it is safe for the use intended, and that you have been warned of any potential side effects. Unfortunately, drug companies sometimes put defective drugs on the market.

If you have suffered serious harm or have lost a loved one as a result of a dangerous drug, our experienced defective drug lawyers at Larkin, Ingrassia & Tepermayster, LLP, may be able to help you pursue compensation and hold the drug company accountable.

Seeking Compensation for Victims of Drug Defects

In some cases, when a drug is found to be dangerous, it is recalled. In other cases, there is no recall. Either way, if you have been harmed by a drug, you may be entitled to compensation. The following are just a few examples of drugs that have been linked to serious side effects:

  • Avandia: The diabetes drug Avandia (rosiglitazone) has been linked to increased risk of heart attack, stroke and heart failure. Avandia has been pulled from the market in Europe, but it remains available by prescription in the U.S.
  • Accutane: The drug Accutane (isotretinoin) is heavily prescribed as a treatment for acne. In addition to an established risk of birth defects, Accutane has also been linked to clinical depression, Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.
  • Meridia: The obesity drug Meridia (sibutramine) has been linked to heart attack, stroke and renal failure. Sibutramine has also been detected as an undisclosed ingredient in several over-the-counter weight-loss supplements.

Many other drugs have been the subject of recalls, investigations and product liability lawsuits. Our attorneys pay close attention to the latest developments in this area so that we can effectively advise and represent clients who have been harmed by dangerous drugs.
