The Manuel Solis Law Firm fights to hold giant pharmaceutical companies responsible when medical devices or prescription drugs hurt and kill innocent people. Our attorneys can earn much-needed compensation for people hurt by dangerous drugs and medical products that they were told would help them.
Research has linked certain drugs to a heightened risk of dangerous consequences. For example, a common class of anti-depressants, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), is linked to an increased risk of birth defects when taken by pregnant mothers. These drugs include Paxil, Zoloft, Celexa, Lexapro and other drugs. Studies published in medical journals have shown they can increase the risk of developing certain birth defects by more than 600%.
Common forms of birth control, including Yaz, Yasmin, Beyaz and Ocella, have been shown to increase the likelihood of blood clots in women who take them. This can lead to stroke and cardiac arrest.
Women implanted with vaginal mesh patches have found that not only did the device not correct their pelvic organ prolapse, but it has caused pain and can require surgery after surgery after surgery to try to correct.
The list continues. In most cases, many users of the drugs aren’t even aware of these dangers because they weren’t informed by the manufacturer of the drug. If this happens and they are hurt, the manufacturer should be held accountable. People need to know all possible dangers so they can make the best choices about their health, and it’s the responsibility of the maker of the drug to tell them about these dangers. That’s why lawsuits are stacking up against the manufacturers of these products.
