Pharmaceutical Injuries (Bad Drugs)

Taking on Big Pharmaceutical Companies With Burwell Nebout Trial Lawyers

PillsPrescription and over-the-counter medications provide much-needed relief for most people.

In cases of wrongful death, we will work with your family to hold the pharmaceutical companies accountable for their negligence and to achieve the largest settlement possible for your loss.

Willful Concealment of Pertinent Facts

In some cases, pharmaceutical firms may continue to sell bad drugs even after they have compelling evidence that their products can cause injury or negative side effects for patients.

  • Takeda Pharmaceutical Company is currently under investigation after reports by a former employee that the firm routinely failed to label congestive heart failure cases properly during routine examination of adverse reactions. Takeda and Eli Lilly have already lost a $9 billion lawsuit on charges that it concealed information regarding the risk of bladder cancer in patients who took Actos, a popular diabetes medication.
  • Johnson & Johnson is currently embroiled in litigation regarding claims that it systematically and repeatedly concealed risks associated with the use of Risperdal, a powerful antipsychotic medication manufactured by the company. Among the allegations made against Johnson & Johnson were that company officials deliberately marketed Risperdal for uses not included in its labeling and that serious side effects were not included in the label information for the drug.
  • Along with current allegations that the company has been involved in kickbacks to increase sales of some of its newer drugs, Novartis has been charged with concealing the risk of osteonecrosis of the jaw in patients who routinely took Aredia and Zometa, drugs used in treating bone cancer.
