Pharmaceutical Litigation

Pharmaceutical Litigation Lawyers Washington DC, Virginia & Maryland

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) oversees drugs and medical devices that are released on the market. Manufacturers are required to go through a rigorous and comprehensive testing process before each pharmaceutical drug or device is approved for human use.

Manufacturers develop these drugs and devices with the intention of providing patients with safe and effective treatment options for what can be serious medical problems. And most times, for most people, they do just that.

Unfortunately, sometimes drugs and devices have not been properly tested or manufactured. When this occurs, severe side effects, irreparable health consequences, or even death can result. Even after a defective drug or device is found to cause medical problems, it can remain on the market for a period of time before being recalled, causing a significant number of injuries or deaths.

Our Experienced Fighting Big Pharma Across the Nation

Drug manufacturers have a duty to warn users of the risks associated with each medication. If they fail to warn the public, they can be held liable for serious medical conditions that are not known to the consumer.

For over 65 years, the lawyers at Ashcraft & Gerel have been leaders in pharmaceutical liability lawsuits involving unsafe drugs and medical devices. Our firm has a team of more than 20 lawyers, paralegals, and medical professionals dedicated full-time to pursuing justice for those harmed by dangerous drugs and medical devices. Our attorneys have successfully won verdicts, settlements, awards, and other recoveries in lawsuits on behalf of individuals who have been injured by Zyprexa, Fen-Phen, Rezulin, Propulsid, Phenylpropanolamine (PPA), breast implants, and AIDS-tainted blood.

Although some of these claims and lawsuits have resulted in class action settlements, class actions are not the only way these cases are handled. On March 22, 2013, Ashcraft & Gerel attorneys won a $5 million verdict on behalf of an individual client against manufacturer General Electric for failure to warn patients and providers of the serious risks arising from its CT scan dye, Omniscan.
