Defective Drug and Class Action Lawsuits
When pharmaceutical companies develop drugs and other products, they are intended to heal people and their conditions, or to prevent conditions from developing in the future. Unfortunately, pharmaceutical companies are also in business to make a profit and, all too often, these conflicting goals lead to mistakes. When safety is neglected, defective drugs can be sold to the public and cause serious harm.
By pursuing class action or mass tort litigation against the manufacturer or a defective drug, groups of people who have been similarly harmed can obtain the benefits they deserve. Having an experienced lawyer is critical, however, to the success of class action lawsuits.
At Murphy Law Firm LLC, in Baton Rouge, our team of attorneys has more than 28 years of combined experience dealing with personal injury litigation in Louisiana. We understand how drug companies market prescription drugs and some of the tactics they use to protect themselves in litigation. Although drugs are tested before they reach consumers, oftentimes side effects can emerge once they are taken by customers and drugs are prescribed for uses other than those for which they have been tested.
