Our Team Of New Jersey Dangerous Drug Lawyers Helps In Determining Responsibility

When someone suffers an injury or becomes sick after taking a dangerous over-the-counter drug, it is necessary to determine what caused the injury or illness. Because every person reacts differently to medications, this can be difficult. Our defective drug attorneys in Rochelle Park, NJ work with medical experts to evaluate the client’s condition and determine if the injury was caused by the dangerous pharmaceutical product.

In some cases, a doctor or pharmacist may recommend the use of a non-prescription drug to a patient who shouldn’t be taking the medication. If the patient is allergic to the drug or is taking another medication that could adversely react with the non-prescription medication, the doctor or pharmacist could be held responsible.
