It’s natural to trust in your medicine. When doctors give you a prescription, you place a deep belief in their skills as well as their knowledge in choosing to take their medication. When that medicine fails you, when it hurts you in ways you were not warned about, that’s a betrayal of your trust—of the trust we all place in our doctors.
Dangerous Drugs and Medications Patients Should Know About
The following medications have betrayed the trust of patients nationwide:
- Lavanquin / Cipro
At Clark, Fountain, La Vista, Littky-Rubin & Whitman, we believe that you are not at fault for trusting in your medication. The fault is in your pharmaceutical manufacturer, who either failed to test their drug for wide use or failed to inform patients of the potential risk. The industry has a history of doing this very thing—but you shouldn’t have to pay for it. Our firm can file a lawsuit on your behalf, building a case that recovers not only the medical costs your injuries have incurred but accounts for the pain and suffering you have experienced as a result.

Defining Pharmaceutical Defects
Anytime a person receives a medication that has a harmful effect that was not disclosed to them, despite the doctor exercising reasonable care, it may be due to a pharmaceutical defect. Harmful drugs, like all product liability cases, fall into three categories. However, due to the nature of medications and how they work, the categories are slightly different for pharmaceuticals.
The types of pharmaceutical defects are:
- Manufacturing Defects – These include contaminated or poorly-made medications that would otherwise be helpful to patients.
- Dangerous Side Effects (Design Defect) – When the medication has an adverse side-effect or harmful result, patients should seek legal help. These cases are complex and require seasoned lawyers.
- Failure to Warn (Marketing Defect) – Patients have a right to know about possible risks and side effects of their prescriptions. When prescriptions encourage “off-label” usage or do not disclose risks, this can constitute a failure to warn.
