Drug Liability

Developing a new drug is time-consuming and expensive, so most pharmaceutical companies want to get their drugs to market quickly. In order to prevent a drug manufacturer from putting its interests over public safety, the law dictates that a drug must undergo testing and government approval before it is permitted on the market.

Despite these protections, sometimes harmful drugs do reach the public. It may happen because a drug company has hidden or ignored research showing the drug causes serious side effects. In other instances, the dangers of the drug only become known after it has been available on the market for a period of time. The harm created by these drugs can be severe and permanent. At Zwiebel and Fairbanks, LLP, in Kingston, our lawyers have helped many people pursue justice and compensation for injuries caused by dangerous prescription drugs.

Energetic, Effective Representation

When a client comes to us, we will investigate the drug and its history to determine who is responsible. We will handle the case directly, or where appropriate start or join a class action suit against the drug company. Whatever path is chosen, we will represent our client to ensure that he or she receives the maximum monetary award for the injury caused by the unsafe drug.

If you have been hurt by a defective drug, we will not sit and wait for the drug company or its insurer to make an insufficient settlement offer. We will file a lawsuit early on to show the opposition that we are serious about your case. We take control of a case from the beginning to ensure that you get the best possible result.
