Prescription Drug Injuries

We have a right to expect that the prescription drugs we take are reasonably safe, and that the drug's manufacturer will warn us about known side effects. Unfortunately, some drug companies are more interested in profits than in warning consumers. Often, consumers don't find about a drug's dangers until they either suffer a serious injury or learn that the drug has been recalled.

At Tremont Sheldon Robinson Mahoney in Bridgeport, Connecticut, our lawyers handle cases of personal injury and wrongful death due to dangerous prescription drugs. If you or someone you love suffered a serious injury after taking a prescription drug, call us at 203-335-5145 for a free case evaluation.

What If I Took A Generic Drug?

Unfortunately, you may not have the right to seek compensation for your injuries if you took a generic version of a name-brand drug.

In 2011, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a ruling (Pliva v. Mensing) that made generic drug manufacturers not responsible for injuries or deaths to consumers.
