Defective Drugs

Hawaii Defective Drug Lawyers

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 such as the attorneys of Cronin, Fried, Sekiya, Kekina & Fairbanks is a valuable ally for individuals and their families after a drug-related injury or death.

Contact Cronin, Fried, Sekiya, Kekina & Fairbanks by phone or e-mail to schedule a free initial consultation regarding serious injury caused by any of the following:

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

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, yet they, too seek to alleviate pain and suffering through well-researched medications.

But sometimes the health care system goes awry, and patients are hurt rather than helped as a result of medication errors. Overdoses, wrongly labeled medications and prescriptions which 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.

At the law offices of Cronin, Fried, Sekiya, Kekina & Fairbanks, we counsel and represent people who have suffered ill because of the effects of defective drugs and other substances (such as gases) that they were given during the course of medical treatment. Contact us to arrange for a free preliminary case evaluation by an experienced attorney if you have been seriously injured as a result of a defective drug.
