Pharmaceutical drug manufacturers may be held responsible if they knowingly allowed drugs onto the market despite risk of harm to potential consumers. An experienced defective products liability attorney is a valuable resource if you believe you may have been harmed while taking a drug that has been shown to be defective. You may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, or loss of companionship of your loved one who died while taking a defective pharmaceutical product.

Specifically, Byrd & Associates, invites inquiries from members of the public who suffered any of the following symptoms while taking these potentially dangerous drugs:

  • Blood Thinner drug Heparin used for treatment of blood clots may cause serious allergic reactions or death
  • Cholesterol-lowering drug Vytorin was allegedly misrepresented and did not reduce the buildup of artery plaques any better than cheaper statins constituting misrepresentation by manufacturers
  • The respiratory antibiotic drug Ketek, administered for treatment of sinusitis, bronchitis, and pneumonia may cause liver failure or death.
  • Asthma drug Advair may cause severe asthma attack or death.
  • Asthma drug Serevent may cause severe asthma attack or death.
