Experienced Drug Litigation Lawyer at Herrman & Herrman, P.L.L.C.
When a new drug is introduced to the market, a presumption exists that the drug is safe. The process starts with lengthy trials and FDA approval. Warnings of side effects are communicated via printing on the package and commercials promoting the new drug. However, those preventative measures mean little when the supposedly “safe” drug has dangerous and deadly results.
Drug litigation is a complex area of personal injury law that requires a combination of experience, legal knowledge and diligence. There are hurdles to overcome in dealing with bureaucracies. At Herrman & Herrman, P.L.L.C., we face the challenges on behalf of our clients who have suffered injuries or are dealing with the death of a loved one due to a defective drug.

Who is liable for side effects causing injuries? Talk to a drug injury lawyer and know your claims.
The “black box” or warning label on the drug’s packaging should call attention to all side effects. Drug manufacturers may be immune to lawsuits when the negative aspects of their defective products are clearly communicated on the container or in a commercial.
However, we handle many cases where additional side effects were not listed. Some clients took the drug before any warnings were noted. A drug that was supposed to improve health can cause more serious health problems, with some resulting in fatalities.
Proving causation and overcoming the presumption that the drug was safe are only some of the challenges we face on behalf of our clients. We also call upon our network of industry experts to verify the drug’s unpublished and hidden dangers. These are the first of many steps we take on behalf of our clients in getting them on the road to recovery.
