Las Vegas Dangerous Drugs Lawyer

When a medication causes harm or death due to a defect, the manufacturer of the drug may be financially liable for the injuries it caused. Drug manufacturers may hide dangerous side effects so the medication could make it to the market. In other cases, the defect should have been known had the company performed appropriate testing.

Each situation is unique, which is why our qualified team at LVNV Legal | Injury Law Firm provides unique approaches and strategies to each specific case. Do not hesitate to speak with a Las Vegas dangerous drugs lawyer at our firm if a medicine caused you harm.

Dangerous Side Effects of Faulty Medication

Every drug is different, as is every patient. This means that the potential side effects vary greatly and can range from relatively minor to very serious. Unexpected results from taking a medication could be a sign that the drug is defective.

Common side effects associated with defective drugs include, but are not limited to:

  • Death
  • Blurry vision
  • Unexpected weight gain or loss
  • Loss of appetite
  • Diarrhea or vomiting
  • Uncontrollable bleeding
  • Cancer
  • Loss of organ function
  • Mental deficiencies
  • Heart attack or stroke
  • Depression and suicidal thoughts

These side effects can have a severely negative impact on a patient’s life. A qualified local attorney at LVNV Legal | Injury Law Firm could look at the facts of your situation to help determine if the drug itself was dangerous.

Holding Pharmaceutical Companies Liable

Pharmaceutical companies are expected to put safe products into the marketplace, subject to known risks and hazards. Since all medications come with some side-effects, so long as the proper warnings have been added and the patient is informed of the risks, this is unlikely to be considered wrongful. All too often, however, drug companies commit wrongdoing in the name of profit.

A pharmaceutical manufacturer may be liable through actions such as:

  • Falsifying clinical trial data
  • Encouraging unsafe off-label use for a medication
  • Improperly designing the medication
  • Failing to warn of known side effects
  • Manufacturing drugs in unsafe or unsanitary conditions

Other types of liability may also attach in a dangerous drug lawsuit. Speaking with our knowledgeable dangerous medication attorneys in Las Vegas could help you understand your potential rights to financial compensation.

Time Limitations

Nevada Revised Statute 11.190 sets time limitations for dangerous drug lawsuits, which varies between two and four years, depending on the nature of the claims and injuries. If the dangerous drug resulted in someone’s untimely passing, this may limit the time in which the lawsuit can be filed to two years.

It is crucial that every plaintiff who thinks a dangerous drug was responsible for their harm to speak with a skilled attorney at LVNV Legal | Injury Law Firm. These lawsuits deserve the care and attention of a dedicated lawyer.

Shoham was kind, patient and knowledgeable in explaining how to qualify my mother for Medicaid long term care. I did not even know my mother was eligible. There are so many aspects to paying for long term care that so many people — including myself — do not know about. One would be lucky to have this firm in your corner navigating you through it.

My parents don't know much about the best way (or any way) to plan their estate. My sister and I have been trying to get them to figure things out for a decade but they never do because it made them too nervous. I got recommended to Mr Segal by a friend and now the ball has started rolling! He made my parents feel comfortable...
