Product Liability

Each year, countless new drugs are approved for market use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Sometimes these drugs deemed “safe” can lead to devastating complications—complications which the manufacturers knew could arise but elected not to inform the public.

The attorneys at the Hudson drug product liability law firm of Greenberg and Greenberg know that people who are in need of any medication need to be able to make medically informed decisions. This cannot happen when a manufacturer places a defective drug into the hands of a consumer.

Responsibility lies with the manufacturer alone, and the knowledgeable Hudson medical malpractice attorneys will fight ceaselessly to ensure that the manufacturer is held accountable for the damages incurred.

Life threatening medical conditions, substantial pain and suffering, and wrongful death can result when a manufacturer fails to warn the public of grave side effects linked to their drugs, or when a pharmaceutical distributes a defective medication.  Greenberg and Greenberg will analyze the facts of your case determine the impact a drug made on your life, and help you receive compensation for your suffering.
