Michigan Dangerous Drug Lawyers
Taking on Big Pharma to Help Injured Patients Find Justice
Most people can count on needing medication at some point in their lives. We trust our doctors and pharmacists to help us find safe and effective treatment in these situations. We also trust the companies that make and sell medications. Unfortunately, some of them do not have patients’ best interests in mind.
Around 1 in 4 drugs is either recalled or has its packaging altered to include a black box warning, the most serious form of consumer alert, in the first 16 years after it is approved. This is a sign of serious neglect on pharmaceutical companies’ behalf. It means each year patients suffer serious side effects they were either not warned about or that are more common than they were told. These injustices can be challenged in court, and our attorneys are here to help patients who have been injured.

When You Can Sue for a Harmful Medication
Suffering a side effect doesn’t automatically make you eligible to file a suit against a drug maker—your right to legal action depends on whether you received proper information and warnings about the risks of a drug and were therefore able to give informed consent. This means even those who suffered severe complications from a drug may not be able to bring a lawsuit if the drug maker provided adequate precautions.
Patients are much more likely to have their suits accepted when they can prove a failure on the pharmaceutical company’s behalf to put consumer safety first. Complaints may include:
- Marketing a drug as more useful or effective than it really is
- Marketing a drug for situations that lay outside of its FDA-approved uses
- Failing to warn about the risk of side effects, especially severe ones
- Downplaying the risk of side effects
- Releasing a drug that is contaminated with unsafe substances
- Releasing a drug that can harm patients when other, safer alternatives exist
Plaintiffs must prove a pharmaceutical company was dishonest or otherwise negligent, and that the harms they suffered could have been prevented had the company acted properly.

Why File a Dangerous Drug Lawsuit?
Starting a claim if you were injured by a harmful drug can have individual and societal benefits. Like any negligent party whose actions harm another, pharmaceutical companies are legally responsible for the damages patients accrue from dangerous drugs. You could be able to recover compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Future medical needs
- Lost wages
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Pain and suffering
Your claim may also help bring attention to a dangerous product and drive public pressure for a recall. The FDA does not have the authority to remove a drug from pharmacies—only drug makers can make that decision. Typically, they only do so to avoid hits to their reputation and bottom line.
By taking a pharmaceutical company to court, you’re letting them know they will face consequences for their negligence. When enough people speak out, companies become more likely to stop selling dangerous drugs rather than assuming their profits will outstrip the cost of any settlements or verdicts they are forced to pay.
