Drugs & Medications

Companies that manufacture medications and pharmaceutical products have a duty to make sure that their products are not unreasonably dangerous for the consumer by following the proper standard of care and using appropriate technology to design, manufacture, inspect and test them. Pharmaceutical companies can be held responsible for creating and distributing defective drugs or for failing to properly research a drug’s potential risks before placing it on the market. Similarly, physicians can be held responsible for prescribing drugs without adequately accounting for harmful side effects, or without assuring proper dosage and frequency of use. When drug companies and medical personnel are thus negligent and violate the standard of care required of them, resulting in a patient’s injury or death, WMK lawyers are prepared to bring product liability and medical malpractice litigation on our clients’ behalf and secure proper compensation for loss and needed medical care.
