Drug Manufacturers

You go in. You get the medication prescription, or the procedure your doctor described. Everything is going well. Then, the FDA announces that they are recalling the medication or the procedure. Oh no. What can you do?

Well, everyone has heard of the various litigation suits that are going on with various pharmaceutical companies. Some of these medication suits include the litigation against Risperdal. Accutane, Zoloft and Zofran. As for litigation against procedures, they include the Power Morcellator, vaginal mesh, and the Depuy hip replacement lawsuit.

When a product is recalled by the FDA, there is usually something that has slipped through the testing nets. Medicinal products are vetted heavily by the FDA. They must go through rounds of testing in the lab, testing on animals (though that is beginning to be heavily looked down upon), and blind clinical test trials to gather evidence of what side effects the medicine has. Money can be handed out in exchange for longer trial runs, funding, or even to make sure that there are people to trial the medicine. For procedures, the vetting process is different, but still as stringent.

Common manufacturers that you may hear about in the news include:

  • Coloplast
  • Pfizer Company
  • AbbVie & Abbot
  • Boston Scientific
  • C.R. Bard
  • Bristol-Myers Squibb
  • Merck & Co.
  • Bayer Healthcare
  • Endo International
  • Johnson & Johnson
  • Cook Medical Company
  • Takeda Pharmaceuticals
  • GlaxoSmithKline Company
  • Stryker Corp.
  • Daiichi Sankyo

There are also plenty of different FDA recalls to look into. They include:

  • Benicar
  • Accutane
  • Actos
  • Biomet Hip Replacement
  • Crestor
  • Celexa
  • Depuy Hip Replacement
  • Byeeta
  • Depokote
  • Cymbalta
  • Lexapro
  • Lipitor
  • Paxil
  • Onglyza
  • Fosamax
  • Pradaxa
  • Effexor
  • Mirena



When a lawsuit like those above - and the countless others that have been started - is initiated, the company will often begin looking for ways to extract information from the injured party that will help reduce the amount of money the company will have to pay out. If the company is successful, the settlement offered to the injured party is not truly reflective of the entirety of the damage.

This is where it is imperative that anyone involved in a personal injury case gets help. If they take the lower settlement, it is possible that the ability to get more money for further medical treatments is lost. After all, insurance companies are profit-oriented, just like any other business out there. The less money they pay out per claim, the more money their shareholders get. This simple logic drives some companies harder than others, but to some degree, every company tries to lower the claims they pay out.

You have the right to fight for a realistic settlement. There are thousands of political reasons a drug or device is accepted by the FDA before the true side effects are known. Women are constantly left berated and under informed about what the drug can do to them. Men are often more informed because the clinical trials are skewed to look more at men than women - even when women are present in those trials.

Manufacturers are partly to blame for this. That's where the Doan Law Firm comes in. We will sue the manufacturers. As a whole, drug manufacturing companies are genuinely interested in the health of their customers. However, due to a lack of oversight from the federal government, these companies have learned that they can get away with knowing the harmful side effects - even if they are simply conjectures at that point - and never letting the cat out of the bag unless it gets out itself. We are here to make the drug manufacturers pay for the mistake of internalizing that behavior much too quickly.

Call us anytime, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, your call will always be answered. When it comes to your safety, you shouldn't know after the fact that you have been exposed to a dangerous drug or product that the FDA and drug manufacturers let onto the market. Everyone deserves good quality healthcare, and it should not be compromised for any reason.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
