Drug Injury Lawyer on Suing Generic Drug Companies

Contact Us

I am a plaintiff’s personal injury lawyer in Miami who has more than 20 years of experience suing companies that make dangerous perscription drugs like low testosterone replacement therapies and medical devices like Stryker and De Puy artificial hip implants for more than 20 years. I was surprised to discover the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on June 23, 2011 that generic drug companies cannot be sued under state law over allegations that they failed to provide adequate label warnings about potential side effects. In the case they heard, the generic drug manufacturers argued that federal law barred these suits because the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the subject name brand drugs, and that federal law requires generics to have the same labels as the name brand.” Click Here for more.
