Dangerous and Defective Drug Attorneys
Illinois Drug Recall Lawsuit Lawyers
Prescription drugs can be dangerous even when they are prescribed and administered correctly. Over-the-counter medications can cause harm when they are taken according to the package directions.
When the Problem Is the Drug Itself
Drugs that are defective, contaminated or mislabeled, and those that cause extremely dangerous side effects, can cause injuries and fatalities. Those who have been injured have a right to recover financial compensation for the full extent of the damages.

Serious Consequences From Dangerous Drugs
Heparin, for example, is an anticoagulant that was recalled by the FDA because it was found to be contaminated by a bacterium that could cause a fatal infection. It caused injuries and deaths in several states, including Illinois.
