Yet another drug maker has come under attack for not disclosing that one of its drugs may cause serious heart problems. This time its the drug Avandia and the maker is GlaxoSmithKline.
Today’s New York Times reports about this dangerous drug
A federal drug safety official recommended during an advisory committee hearing today that Avandia, a controversial diabetes medicine made by GlaxoSmithKline, be withdrawn from the market because it increases heart risks.
If you or a loved one has suffered heart damage through the use of the drug Avandia you may have a defective product claim against the drug’s maker GlaxoSmithKline. Under Vermont product liability law a manufacturer of an unreasonalby dangerous drug may have a product liability claim against its maker. Pharmaceutical claims can be complicated so if you are thinking of legal action you should consult an attorney with experience in product liability law. I have been handling product liability cases for 30 years. My firm offers free consultations.
