Manufacturers of drugs and supplements must follow strict rules from the FDA. Where manufacturers violate those rules and are negligent, they may be held legally responsible if that conduct is proven to cause injuries.
If you believe that a drug, over-the-counter medicine or herbal supplement has caused you or a loved one to suffer serious injuries, our experienced pharmaceutical lawyers in Minneapolis can evaluate your situation and explain your options.
Dangerous Drugs and Supplements Quick Facts
Prescription drugs and over-the counter products and herbal supplements can have contaminations, design defects, manufacturing defects, improper instructions for use, inadequate testing or even defective warnings. Any of these problems can cause serious injuries.
Drug manufacturers can be held liable for injuries to consumers based on theories of negligence, strict liability, failure to warn, fraud or even intentional or malicious conduct. Here are some of the common legal theories available to plaintiffs in pharmaceutical liability litigation:
Defective design of the drug or supplement occur when serious risks outweigh the benefits of the product.
Inadequate testing of a drug or supplement prior to its sale and use by consumers. This also includes drugs or supplements that are contaminated by the manufacturer.
A failure to warn about a drug’s potential risk or side effects. This also includes fraudulent over-promotion and advertising by the manufacturer that violates Federal Law.
When it comes to pharmaceuticals, accuracy is crucial. When something is off, such as the marketing or the manufacturing, it can cause terrible injuries to the user. In the worst case scenario, it can even be fatal. This is why it is so important that the pharmaceutical companies be held accountable when there are errors.

What You Need To Know
GoldenbergLaw has over 30 years of experience helping injured people recover against drug and supplement manufacturers. We work with clients wherever they live and litigate cases across the country. We will guide you or your family through the process and give you the best chance of recovery.
All drug and supplement cases are based on proving three things: fault of the manufacturer, the cause of the injury and damages to the client. GoldenbergLaw is a science-based firm. We review all the medical articles and studies on the product, the regulatory history, and documents available to understand how to prove the defect and causation. We then consult with top experts in the field and develop a case criteria for success. We will be screening your case to make sure it meets these criteria.
If you experience any adverse reactions to a prescription drug, nutritional supplement, or over-the-counter product, tell your doctor immediately. However, you should never discontinue a drug without speaking to your doctor. In many cases, the doctors are unaware of the side effects since the manufacturer has not warned about them.
Once you retain our firm, our team of attorneys and legal assistants becomes your team. We will gather all information and evidence to meet the scientific criteria established to help prove your case. We will need your medical history, pharmacy records confirming product use, medical records related to treatment and information about how frequently you took the drug and in what amounts. Then review them with an expert.
We will also request relevant information about the drug from the manufacturer through a process called discovery. In discovery, we can request documents from the other side and depose witnesses. Evidence that may be helpful to the plaintiff’s case includes: reports of adverse drug reactions, complaints the manufacturer received about the drug, correspondence between the defendant and the FDA, materials from clinical trials, laboratory studies, sales and advertising information, product labels and inserts, prior lawsuits involving the drug, and medical or scientific studies funded by the defendant.
