Nationwide Pharmaceutical Drug Lawsuits

Assisting the injured with cases involving bad pharmaceutical drugs and side effects.

Every year drugs that come with some severe side effects manage to meet the minimum FDA requirements and are released to the public. Unsuspecting consumers purchase these pharmaceuticals believing them to be totally safe, unaware of the risks involved. Not long ago many believed that drugs like Actos and Risperdal were safe until landmark cases against the drug makers proved the startlingly side effect claims. Today many communities are at risk, most notably the diabetic community and other target markets for pharmaceutical companies.

If you or a loved one has been hurt by one of these products, call Johnston Law Group and speak with a dangerous drug attorney today.

An Increasing Number of Diabetes Drugs

Diabetes, a disease in which people have too much sugar in their blood, affects 29 million people (an estimated 9.3% of the population) here in America. As the number affected by Diabetes continues to grow the number of drugs available for their treatment does as well.

Invokana has quickly grown to be one of the most popular drugs available to consumers to treat type 2 Diabetes. In addition, it has become a beacon of information on the value of the long-term testing on drugs available to consumers.

Without long-term testing, it is heavily marketed by its maker, Johnson & Johnson, as an (SGLT) 2 inhibitor. However, by 2017 a new risk of Invokana was being exposed following a critical study known as the CANagliflozin cardioVascular Assessment Study (CANVAS). CANVAS followed the effects of Invokana long-term and was able to show an increased risk of amputation related to taking Invokana.

A Common Drug, Heartburn Drug Safety

Millions of Americans consume heartburn drugs daily without being properly informed of the risks. Prilosec, Nexium, and Prevacid have been reported to side effects like bone fractures and kidney disease and failure previous to the definitive news that long-term exposure to these drugs may increase the risk of the death.

Manufacturers have an obligation to consumers to inform them of the risks of taking their products. However, the current system of testing, FDA approval, and prescribing allows many drugs, like heartburn drugs, once commonly believed to be safe, to be consumed for years on end.

Defective Drugs Are Not Always Discontinued

Drug manufacturers are required to make clear to consumers the potential side effects that come with their product. From a marketing standpoint, this is a major disadvantage for them, and some will downplay the risks as much as possible to keep profit margins up. As a result, even drugs that are known to be dangerous are consumed on a daily basis because the victims were not made aware of the product's history.

Our firm has represented clients harmed by the following drugs:

These are just a handful of the drugs that are known to cause problems. Anyone injured after using Vioxx, Zoloft, certain contact solution brands, Fosamax, and more are encouraged to reach out to Johnston Law Group.
