Florida Dangerous Drug Attorneys
Representing Victims of Defective Drugs in Miami & Across the Nation
Over the years, many commonly-used drugs have been quickly manufactured and distributed, only to be discovered later that these same drugs cause serious health complications. It is critical to hold the manufacturers of dangerous and defective drugs responsible for their negligence and the harm that they have caused. With the help of a skilled Florida dangerous drug lawyer, you can pursue just compensation for your injuries.

Who May Be Liable for My Injuries?
The liability for a dangerous drug depends on the individual facts of your case. If the defect is in the design, development or manufacturing of a particular drug, the manufacturer may be liable.
Doctors may be found liable for off-labeling, using a drug for non-FDA-approved purposes. Although this practice is legal, liability can be proven if the doctor prescribed incorrect dosage, used contradictory medications, or failed to warn the patient of risks associated with the unapproved treatment.
Pharmacists must warn customers of potential dangers associated with their prescription before dispensing medications; a failure to do so may give rise to liability. A pharmacist may also be liable for practices incorrectly labeling a drug, dispensing the wrong dosage or providing insufficient instructions.
If you feel you have been injured by a dangerous drug, a negligent doctor or a pharmacist error, contact one of our attorneys to determine whether you may have a claim.
