At The Killino Firm, we know defective drugs. Our lawyers filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Tyco Healthcare on behalf of a family whose loved one died as a result of taking tainted Heparin. We filed the lawsuit stating that the company waited too long to recall its product once it discovered it may have been defective.
The Heparin lawsuit is a prime example of our commitment to keeping America safe. We believe that drug manufacturing companies have a responsibility to American consumers and when a patient is injured or killed as a result of a defective medication, we take it upon ourselves to ensure they are held accountable.
Too many times prescription drugs hit the market without proper testing. In these cases, it isn’t until after people suffer adverse side effects that the drugs face being recalled or pulled from the shelves. In some cases drug manufacturers know of the potential side effects linked to certain drugs but choose to hide the information from the public. When this is the case, our Florida defective drug attorneys are prepared to fight aggressively to expose the company’s wrongdoing.
