Prescription and over-the-counter drugs serve many purposes and even save lives. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), about three billion prescriptions are written in the U.S. each year. Not all of these medications perform as they should, and patients can be seriously injured as a result. In fact, the FDA reports that approximately four million emergency room and medical treatment center visits are attributed to adverse reactions to drugs.
When dangerous drugs cause side effects that lead to serious injuries or wrongful death, McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP stands prepared to seek justice. Our drug injury lawyers represent clients in the Inland Empire and across the U.S. in class actions and individual lawsuits involving defective and dangerous medications.

Potential Grounds for Drug Injury Actions
Drugs are known to cause side effects, and if you suffer these, you may or may not have grounds for a valid lawsuit against the manufacturer. It will be necessary to prove that the drug was defective or that is was improperly marketed.
Possible grounds for a drug injury action may include:
- The drug lacked sufficient warnings regarding potential side effects or interactions.
- The drug was improperly marketed or falsely advertised to consumers or medical professionals.
- The drug was not properly tested, whether through negligence or intentional wrongdoing.
- The drug was improperly manufactured or produced, resulting in a defect.
