About Dangerous Drugs

Prescription drugs and over-the-counter medicines are designed to help people live fuller, healthier lives, yet every year millions of people suffer severe injuries due to unreported side effects, negligence in the manufacturing process, or a drug’s failure to perform as promised.  Drug companies are bound by law to sell a product that has been carefully tested and proven to be safe and effective.  When drug makers do not adequately test their product, release drugs with manufacturing defects, or fail to fully disclose side effects, they may be liable for damages when consumers are harmed. At the Raleigh personal injury law firm of Hardison & Cochran, we believe that drug companies need to be held responsible for the injuries they inflict on consumers and their families.  Why should a patient have to pay for hospital bills that occurred due to a defective pill or injection?  Is it fair that you cannot work and support your family because you were injured by a medicine that you believed was helping you? Hardison & Cochran was founded to protect the rights of the personal injury victim.  If this means taking on large pharmaceutical manufacturers and insurance companies, we are willing to do so.

Dangerous Drugs Lawyer We believe that drug companies need to be held responsible for the injuries they inflict on consumers and their families.



Our Raleigh dangerous drug lawyers have a track record of success in both settlements and courtroom cases. The Food and Drug Administration approves drugs in the U.S. marketplace. Unfortunately, due to various issues such as funding shortfalls and manufacturer pressure, inadequately tested drugs have been approved ? and severe side effects have surfaced after thousands of patients have taken the defective product. That has prompted the FDA to issue warnings or recalls. Typically, neither the patient nor the patient’s doctor has been aware of these drug’s full dangers. In such situations, the drug manufacturer can be held responsible for any injuries because manufacturers must exercise reasonable care in the design and manufacture of their product. Injuries sustained from dangerous drugs can have catastrophic effects on your life.  These injuries can take the form of heart attacks, strokes, kidney failure, blindness and other horrible afflictions.  Sometimes the outcome of drug makers? negligence is death.
