Defective Drug Cases

Massachusetts Defective Drug Attorney

Defective Drugs and Medical Devices Can Cause Injuries
In their rush to get lucrative products to market, manufacturers may cut corners or fail to take the precautions they should to ensure the safety of consumers. Problems have already been documented with such products as:
  • Accutane
  • Actos
  • Avandia
  • Chantix
  • Denture creams
  • Dostinex and Permax
  • Enbrel
  • Gadolinium
  • Hip and knee replacement products
  • Kugel mesh hernia patches
  • Medtronic defibrillators
  • Pain pumps (shoulder injuries)
  • Paxil
  • Reglan
  • Remicade
  • Trasylol
  • Tysabri
  • Zicam

Although Americans should be able to rely on the safety of pharmaceuticals prescribed by their physicians, the alarming truth is that many drugs – even when taken as directed – can have dangerous side effects. The same holds true for over-the-counter products: From cold medications to pain relievers to denture creams, the list seems to grow longer almost daily. In fact, the latest statistics from the Food and Drug Administration confirm more than 1,700 over-the-counter and prescription drug recalls per year in the U.S.

Massachusetts Defective Drug Attorney Jeffrey S. Glassman and his staff have a full range of legal and medical resources to put to work for those who have suffered injuries or who have loved ones who have died because of issues with the safety of prescription or over-the-counter medications. Pharmaceutical manufacturers and insurance companies may be more interested in protecting their bottom lines than they are in the consequences that may be caused by their defective products. Attorney Glassman is a dedicated advocate for those who have suffered injuries or death because of defective drugs. He is not afraid to challenge the large corporations and their attorneys, and he will see that they are held responsible for the damage their products have caused.

Among the substances receiving attention for potentially adverse influences is benzene, a pleasant-smelling liquid chemical that has many uses in manufacturing a variety of products including drugs, dyes, solvents, and detergents. Problems with benzene exposure have been noted among workers in shipyards, railroad yards, and refineries. Painters, mechanics and others who work around solvents or machinery also report health issues that have been traced to benzene. But the prevalence of benzene, even in commonly used household products, means that many beyond those industries may be at risk for reactions ranging from increased heart rates and headaches to the development of potentially fatal leukemia and other cancers.

Even such seemingly innocent substances as denture adhesives have made headlines for the roles they are playing in causing neurological symptoms. Users of denture creams that contain zinc have reported numbness, pain, and muscle weakness, among other signs of possible poisoning. Continued exposure can pose the risk of lasting neurological damage, such as the development of the painful condition neuropathy. With an estimated 30-million-plus U.S. residents wearing dentures, the potential for serious health consequences arising from denture creams is widespread.
