When you take a prescription or over-the-counter medication, you put your life in the hands of the manufacturer of that drug. Unfortunately, thousands of people die or suffer serious injury every year from drugs that are unsafe. Many such drugs have been inadequately tested or provide insufficient warning of risks and side effects on labels and in direct-to-consumer advertising.
At Paulson & Nace, drug liability cases are our specialty. With more than 30 years of experience in this complex and difficult area of the law, senior partner Barry Nace is one of the acknowledged pioneers in the field. In 1985, he litigated and won the first case involving Bendectin, a drug suspected of causing birth defects. Another of Mr. Nace’s drug liability cases produced a $95 million verdict, including $75 million in punitive damages.
It is rarely obvious that a drug is the cause of an injury or death. If you suspect that you or your loved one has been injured or died as a result of taking a drug, it is important to consult with a drug liability attorney immediately to protect your legal rights.
