San Diego Defective Drug Lawyer

You can hold pharmaceutical companies responsible for their mistakes by filing a personal injury claim against them. A San Diego dangerous drug attorney can help you with your claim.

Prescription drugs are designed to help those with health problems. They can help with pain, decrease symptoms of an illness or disease, and save your life. But if a dangerous or defective drug has done the opposite and hurt you, you can hold drug companies and manufacturers accountable for their mistakes.

Manufacturers must be careful not to send a product out into the world that hasn’t been properly tested or that is known to cause harm. When you’ve been injured by a defective drug, you can seek damages for your injuries and suffering by filing a personal injury claim.

Contact a San Diego defective drug lawyer at The Kindley Firm, APC, for help with your claim.

  • Cancer – Several drugs have been found to increase the likelihood of cancer or cause it outright.
  • Cardiovascular Issues – Heart attacks, strokes, and blood clots can all be caused by defective drugs, leading to serious injury and even death.
  • Suicidal Thoughts and Depression – Many drugs have been shown to cause suicidal thoughts and severe depression.
  • Poisoning – Improper dose information on a medication can lead to poisoning.
