Dangerous Medications, Defective Drugs, Unsafe Products & Prescription Errors
Each year thousands of children and adults are injured and/or killed by defective drugs in the United States. We often take for granted and assume that these products and medications are safe for use by ourselves and our loved ones.

Side effects can range from a headache or upset stomach to more serious injuries such as liver or kidney failure, heart problems, or even death. Many injuries are caused by pharmacies improperly filing prescriptions.
For more than 25 years, the personal injury attorneys at the Fort Lauderdale law firm of Abramowitz, Pomerantz & Morehead, P.A. have been seeking justice for victims of dangerous medications and defective drugs throughout Florida and the United States.

In other instances, approved drugs are marketed and prescribed to treat off-label medical conditions that may make them dangerous to the consumer.
