Dangerous Drug Injuries
Defective Drug Lawyer in Philadelphia
Just because a drug has been approved by the FDA does not guarantee its
safety. Too many drugs are rushed through the inspection process and allowed
to injure millions once on the market. Drugs that can't pass FDA inspection
are instead sold in health stores as "supplements" to avoid
testing. This is an issue that our Philadelphia personal injury lawyers
at Shrager, Spivey & Sachs have extensive experience in litigating.
We have over 80 years of legal experience, and we focus our attention
on helping individuals recover damages after they have been injured, including
by dangerous drugs.
Our firm has the extensive knowledge needed to help you achieve a favorable
resolution in your dangerous drug claim. We have a successful track record
which includes recovering millions of dollars on our clients' behalves.
More importantly, we have helped these innocent victims obtain justice.
Among others, our attorneys handle the following dangerous drug cases:
Avandia - A popular drug used by Type II diabetics to control blood sugar. Since
its debut on the market, Avandia has been under scrutiny for reports of
increased risks of heart attack, heart failure, osteoporosis and other
potentially life-threatening side effects. One study estimated that from
1999 to 2009, more than 47,000 people taking Avandia needlessly suffered
a heart attack, stroke or heart failure, or died. Europe has suspended
the sale of Avandia, and the Food and Drug Administration recently restricted
its use; however, in its nine years on the market, Avandia has been prescribed
to millions of diabetics.
Fen-Phen - A popular prescription diet drug that was removed from the market in
1997 after thousands of users developed heart valve disease and primary
pulmonary hypertension. Many fen-phen users have since suffered permanent
heart valve anomalies and organ failure. Our attorneys at Shrager, Spivey
& Sachs have fought to hold fen-phen's manufacturer responsible
for the catastrophic health effects associated with the drug.
