Defective Drugs Pharmaceuticals


Our law firm has been nationally recognized for our abilities in handling complex medical and pharmaceutical issues in Ohio and across the United States. We believe that you should have a reasonable expectation of safety when taking over-the-counter drugs, prescription drugs and other pharmaceutical products. Unfortunately, your safety with the use of these products is never guaranteed. Pharmaceutical companies are prepared for the possibility of debilitating and long-lasting side effects caused by their products.

At Weisman, Kennedy & Berris Co., L.P.A., in Cleveland, our drug product liability attorneys hold “Big Pharma” accountable for pharmaceutical toxicity, misleading marketing tactics and claims, failure to warn, defective manufacture and distribution, and defective design and formulation. Our attorneys are leaders in handling and understanding medical causation, conducting discovery against defendants and their expert witnesses, and retaining our own experts to build solid cases against defendants with nearly limitless resources.

Aggressive Leaders in Defective Drug Recovery

Dangerous drugs can cause devastating injuries, and Weisman, Kennedy & Berris has a long history of leading the charge for our clients. We have been pursuing mass tort claims for thousands of clients across the U.S. for more than 20 years. We were pioneers in the litigation of tryptophan, a dietary supplement that caused an outbreak of eosinophilia-myalgia syndrome (EMS), causing 1,500 cases of permanent disability and more than 30 deaths in 1989.

Drug product liability is a major public concern. Drug companies spend millions on research, testing, development, production and marketing. They are dealing with multiple year timelines before they can even get a product to market, so naturally, if they discover some possibly dangerous side effects late in the process, it may make sense to not fully inform the public. They are prepared to just throw money at the problem, hoping to keep victims quiet.

We are not about to just accept a low-ball settlement on behalf of our injured clients. Our case results show that we pursue the maximum compensation our clients deserve for their injuries and work to ensure that no one else is injured by the defective pharmaceuticals in question.

Our lawyers will pursue compensation for all costs and losses suffered by our individual clients and others involved in any mass tort claim in which we are involved, including compensation for:

  • Medical costs
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Income loss/lost wages
  • Disability expenses
  • Vocational rehabilitation
  • In-home care costs
  • Funeral costs in a wrongful death claim
  • Other future costs
