Types of Drug Injury Cases

We handle drug injury cases including but not limited to:


Pradaxa has been known to cause serious, sometimes fatal bleeding in patients who take it regularly. If you or someone you love has suffered from severe bleeding that resulted in hospitalization, cerebral hemorrhage, or life-threatening blood loss, contact a Connecticut drug injury attorney at our office for help.


Using Zofran to treat morning sickness during the first trimester of pregnancy has resulted in birth defects such as cleft lip, cleft palate, heart defects, and kidney issues. Investigations and lawsuits against GlaxoSmithKline, the drug company that produces Zofran, are currently underway.


Xarelto is a blood thinning medication connected to fatal bleeding and blood clots. Often used to treat patients recovering from joint replacement surgery or patients who have non-valvular atrial fibrillation, Xarelto has been linked to more than just serious bleeding and blood clots; it’s also known to increase the risk of heart attack, deep vein thrombosis, stroke, spinal/epidural hematomas, and pulmonary embolisms.


This drug is used to treat a variety of mental disorders, including schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. It can also be used with other medications to treat depression. However, reports of serious side effects, including seizures, swallowing problems, heart failure, strokes, and pneumonia have raised concerns about the safety of the drug.

Byetta, Januvia, Onglyza, Tradjenta, & Victoza

Byretta and Victoza are known as “incretin mimetics,” which act as incretin hormones and stimulate glucose-dependent insulin release for diabetic patients. Januvia, Onglyza, and Tradjenta are known as “gliptins,” which are oral diabetes drugs used to treat Type 2 diabetes. Doctors are starting to combine these drugs, but more research is needed to determine the possible harmful side effects these drugs can have. If you have suffered a drug-related injury, call our Connecticut drug injury attorney today.

Invokana & Invokamet

Invokana contains canagliflozin, and Invokamet contains a combination of canagliflozin and metformin. These drugs are used to treat Type 2 diabetes. However, serious side effects have been reported. These include urinary tract infections, kidney problems, hyperkalemia (high levels of potassium in the bloodstream), and lactic acidosis.

Low Testosterone Heart Attacks

Men who take testosterone-boosting drugs may be at twice the risk of suffering heart attacks, strokes, and blood clots.

Nexium & Prilosec

These are proton pump antagonists or inhibitors. They are used to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and other stomach acid digestive conditions. However, improper dosage or long-term use (of 1 year or longer) can lead to heart attacks, osteoporosis, and other serious side effects. If you have suffered a harmful side effect from these drugs, our firm can provide compassionate representation.

Onglyza & Kombiglyze

These drugs are used to control glucose levels and treat Type 2 diabetes. They present the risk of heart failure, pancreatitis, thyroid cancer, and pancreatic cancer. In addition, side effects include trouble breathing, severe joint pain, respiratory tract infections, and lactic acidosis. While these drugs are used to treat diabetes, the health risks pose a serious threat to users and pharmaceutical companies must be held responsible for injuries caused by these drugs.


If you were prescribed Ozempic and have since suffered complications or developed new medical issues, you may be eligible for compensation through an Ozempic class action lawsuit. You may now be facing the grim prospect of ongoing medical treatment to manage these unforeseen consequences, a feat that is not easy to navigate alone.


This drug is used to prevent the growth and spread of cancer cells in the body. Used to treat breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer, head and neck cancer, and stomach cancer, this drug has caused serious side effects in patients. These include infections, leukopenia (decreased white blood cells), stomatitis (sore mouth), and vomiting.


A treatment for erectile dysfunction, this drug carries some health warnings. It may cause low blood pressure, hearing problems, vision problems, heart problems, and painful erections or erections lasting longer than 4 hours. If you have suffered an injury or illness because of taking Viagra, our Connecticut drug injury attorneys can work to hold your physician or drug manufacturer responsible.
