Hundreds of new drugs and medical products are approved by the Food and Drug Administration in the United States every year. In turn, these products are utilized by thousands of patients suffering from a variety of ailments or medical issues. Sometimes, a drug or medical product is released to the public, and it is later found to be dangerous or defective, thus causing serious personal injuries… even death in some cases.
While many drugs have dangerous side effects, others have the potential to cause much more serious, long-term personal injury. Although the FDA plays a regulatory role in approving and monitoring their safety after approval of a drug, the manufacturer is ultimately liable for any injuries resulting from their medications… and they MUST be held accountable.
Each year, defective and dangerous drugs and medical devices cause thousands of injuries and deaths in the United States. Often, pharmaceutical manufacturing giants recall their products from the market long after they have become aware of their potential for injury, and the damage has already been done. As a result, thousands of people each year suffer catastrophic injuries, undergo multiple corrective surgeries, and even lose their lives.
The dangerous drug attorneys at Amerio Law Firm understand the devastating effects that dangerous drugs and defective medical devices can have on the lives of our clients and their families.

The dangerous drug attorneys at Amerio Law Firm work to protect people from further harm caused by these dangerous drugs by holding manufacturers accountable. Most of the time, many people are affected by a drug or medical product recall. In these situations, those affected are allowed to participate in large-scale lawsuits known as "mass torts". Mass tort claims are filed to obtain compensation for groups of people or organizations that have been injured or harmed by a common act of negligence, and are often associated with dangerous drugs.

Pharmaceutical companies are able to get away with this kind of dangerous activity on a consistent basis because these cases end in settlement far more often than they do in verdicts. Unfortunately, Plaintiffs suffering from effects of dangerous drugs often take settlement offers, because they need the compensation to pay for medical bills, lost wages, and rehabilitation. The enormous pharmaceutical companies are happy to pay for a settlement, because it keeps their case out of Court and the news. As long as profits outweigh settlement fees, they simply consider it a cost of doing business.
