Dangerous & Defective Drug Claims

At the Kohn Law Office, we have decades of experience helping people recover compensation after an injury or the wrongful death of a loved one. San Diego personal injury lawyer Russell Kohn understands the devastating effects of a defective drugs or birth control defect.

Drugs That Can Cause Injury

Although new medicines undergo testing and must receive approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), they may still cause unwanted side effects. The drug's manufacturer has a duty to inform medical personnel and the public about possible side effects. However, whether due to incomplete testing or lack of warning, prescription drugs sometimes injure or even kill patients.

Over-the-counter drugs may or may not have obtained FDA approval. Cold remedies, non-narcotic painkillers, and weight loss drugs are examples of over-the-counter drugs.

Kohn Law Office can help you if you have been injured by side effects of the following drugs:

  • NuvaRing — An increased risk of blood clots, stroke, heart attack, organ damage and pulmonary embolism
