Louisville Drug Injury Attorneys
Holding Drug Companies Accountable for Dangerous Medications
Prescription drugs serve many purposes, alleviating pain and other uncomfortable symptoms, addressing psychological disorders, and treating potentially life-threatening medical conditions. They save lives every single day, and yet they are also linked to serious side effects that can cause more harm than good. Blood thinners, as an example, are used to reduce the risk of dangerous blood clots, but some of these medications have no counteracting drugs to stop bleeding once it begins, increasing the risk of severe and possibly fatal bleeding.
Sam Aguiar Injury Lawyers represents patients across Kentucky, Indiana, and Tennessee who have suffered serious side effects caused by prescription drugs. If you took your medicine as prescribed and experienced harm as a result, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your medical care and other expenses, losses, or injuries. Our Louisville drug injury lawyers can review your specific case to determine whether you have a valid claim, and we can fight for you to hold the negligent drug company accountable.

Side Effects Caused by Dangerous & Defective Prescription Drugs
While it is true that many prescription drugs include a list of potential side effects to warn patients of the risk involved, there are some cases where a drug company does not fully test a product before its release, markets it for off-label use, or commits other acts of negligence or intentional wrongdoing. In these scenarios, injured patients may be able to take legal action against the manufacturer to recoup their losses.
Prescription drugs have been linked to a range of serious and life-threatening side effects. These include:
- Birth defects
- Heart failure
- Severe bleeding
- Permanent hair loss
- Compulsive gambling
- Chronic kidney disease
- Heart attack, stroke, and blood clots
