Louisiana Mass Tort Litigation Lawyer
Every year, pharmaceutical companies in Louisiana and throughout the United States produce hundreds of new drugs, including prescription and over the counter drugs. These drugs are marketed to consumers as safe and are regulated and approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) before they can be sold and used. Unfortunately, despite this regulations, more than 50% of all drugs that are marketed and sold in the United States have damaging effects and more than 200,000 people die from dangerous drugs every year.

Drug manufacturers may be held liable for injuries that their products cause if it can be shown that the drugs are defective or unreasonably dangerous.

These drugs may be dangerous because of an error during the manufacturing process, a design flaw, or a failure to warn consumers of possible bad effects.
Many types of drugs have caused widespread injuries in the United States involving mass tort litigation and class action suits. These drugs include:
Other drugs, including dietary supplements and other vitamins, do not require testing or approval from the FDA but may still pose dangerous risks for those who take them.
