Lexington Defective Drugs Lawyers

Pharmaceutical drugs have become integral to the practice of modern medicine. Unfortunately, these powerful medications often come with dangerous side effects, in some cases, worse than the problem the medication is meant to treat. In the worst cases, dangerous drugs may place users at risk of suffering permanent physical harm or even death. Therefore, the manufacturers of dangerous drugs may be held liable for the damaging effects their products can have on users.

Drug manufacturers make billions of dollars on their products, and when these products cause unsuspecting individuals to suffer serious harm, they need to be held accountable. At Wilson & McQueen, PLLC, our Lexington legal team knows just how severe the effects of dangerous pharmaceutical products can be, and we know what it takes to hold the manufacturers of these products accountable for the harm they have caused.
