Dangerous Drugs

Langdon & Emison attorneys regularly take on some of the major pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers in the world, on behalf of individual consumers and their families.

As consumers of prescription drugs, our society assumes that pharmaceutical companies test for the safety as well as the effectiveness of prescription medication. But there are and have been several drugs on the market that cause illness, injury, or even death. In these cases, the negligence of a pharmaceutical company may warrant a personal injury lawsuit.

For example, testosterone therapy has recently been linked to increased heart attacks in men. In part due to the pharmaceutical manufacturers’ marketing of these products and their potential dangers to consumers, litigation over testosterone gels like AndroGel has commenced. And the pharmaceutical and medical device litigators at Langdon & Emison have extensive experience in litigating cases against manufacturers of dangerous drugs.

Our attorneys have served on national Plaintiffs Steering Committees and have been appointed lead and liaison counsel in a number of pharmaceutical cases. Our attorneys are familiar with the specialized state, federal and multi-district procedures required in pharmaceutical cases. Currently, for instance, our firm is accepting and evaluating claims on behalf of those injured after taking testosterone therapy.
