When A Defective Or Dangerous Drug Causes Harm

When a patient suffers serious harm or even death after taking or receiving a dangerous or defective drug, it often takes a detailed investigation to discover who was at fault: the drug manufacturer? The prescribing physician? The pharmacy? The hospital? The nurse who administered the medication?

An experienced personal injury lawyer from the Honolulu law firm of Cronin, Fried, Sekiya, Kekina & Fairbanks can help you.

Providing Skilled Legal Assistance In Hawaii

The right attorney is a valuable ally for individuals and their families after a drug-related injury or death. At the law offices of Cronin, Fried, Sekiya, Kekina & Fairbanks, we counsel and represent people who fell ill because of the effects of defective drugs and other substances (such as gases) they were given during the course of medical treatment. We will help you with your recovery if you or a loved one suffers a serious injury caused by:

  • Defective prescription medicine
  • Dangerous prescription errors
  • Defective medical vaccines
  • Anesthesia malpractice
  • Administration of the wrong substances (such as carbon dioxide in place of oxygen) to hospital patients
  • Defective diet supplements

Most doctors, nurses and other health care providers in Hawaii and elsewhere go into the medical field out of a desire to help people. Pharmaceutical manufacturers are, of course, in business to make a profit, but must develop and manufacture drugs that meet safety standards.

Unfortunately, sometimes the health care system goes awry, and patients are hurt rather than helped as a result of medical malpractice and medication errors. Overdoses, wrongly labeled medications and prescriptions that do not take into account potential interactions with other drugs that a patient might be taking are all scenarios that can have tragic results, including brain damage, nerve damage and fatal complications.
