Top Lawyers for Prescription Drug Injuries: The Levensten Law Firm’s Proven Track Record
The Levensten Law Firm is deeply committed to representing patients in prescription drug injury litigation, focusing on holding drug manufacturers accountable for their responsibilities and ensuring patient safety.
Patient Rights and Manufacturer’s Obligations
- Informed Consent: Patients have the right to be fully informed about the risks and benefits of a medication before usage. It is the manufacturer’s duty to ensure that their products are thoroughly tested and that any potential risks are clearly communicated to physicians and, in turn, to patients.
- Manufacturer’s Failure: When a drug manufacturer neglects its duty to warn about a drug’s risks, often by failing to disclose data to the FDA or inaccurately labeling the drug, they may be liable for resulting patient harm.
The Legal Process in Prescription Drug Injury Cases
- Right to Litigation: Patients have the right to seek legal recourse in state or federal courts for compensation due to injuries caused by drugs.
- Wide-Reaching Impact: A drug manufacturer’s failure usually affects a broad patient population, leading to widespread injuries and adverse reactions across the nation.
- Consolidation for Efficiency: To handle numerous cases efficiently, they are often consolidated into a single court docket, known as multi-county litigation (MCL) or multi-district litigation (MDL).
Strength in Numbers: How MDL and MCLs Streamline Drug Injury Litigation
- Individual Rights in Consolidation: In these consolidated proceedings, each plaintiff retains their right to a personal trial.
- Collaborative Legal Approach: Attorneys nationwide work together in pre-trial proceedings, pooling resources and expertise to review the manufacturer’s documents, conduct depositions, and develop expert testimonies.
