When we use medical devices or pharmaceuticals, we expect them to make us better. But when companies fail to make these products safe, people often struggle with more health problems than they started with. When people suffer medical injuries due to unsafe pharmaceuticals, they turn to Arnold & Itkin. Our firm has secured more than $20 billion for people who have been harmed by negligence. We have stood up to careless drug makers, marketers, and manufacturers in cases nationwide, changing the medical industry and how pharmaceutical companies treat injured patients.

No Matter How Tough the Fight

Medical companies and other manufacturers have large teams of lawyers ready to defend them. Their bullying tactics are enough to make most law firms give up. However, when they see Arnold & Itkin on the other side, they know they’re in for a fight. We’ve secured more than $20 billion for clients by never being intimidated, always putting in the hours, and refusing to settle for less than a client deserves. Even when we’re outnumbered, we're never outworked. We won’t hesitate to hold them accountable through a trial. 

No fight is too tough for us because we’re in it for our clients.

When clients come to us, they’ve lost so much already. If you speak to them after they've worked with us, you’ll hear the same thing over and over: “They treat us like family.” We make sure our clients know we care by doing everything they need as we handle their case. If they need medical care, we make sure they get it. If the other side is lying or trying to cover up the truth, we do the work to prove them wrong. We don’t care for our clients because it’s our job. We do it because that's who we are.

Common Questions

  • What Can I Recover Through a Pharmaceutical Injury Lawsuit?

    Every case is different, and our team will investigate yours to determine the full extent of damages for which you should be compensated. Common types of compensation for a lawsuit such as this include lost wages, medical bills, pain and suffering, and loss of consortium. Calling Arnold & Itkin can help you discover more about your options.
  • How Much Does Hiring a Drug Injury Lawyer Cost?

    Our drug injury law firm works on contingency fees. This means we take cases at no charge, forward all costs associated with a case, and only collect a fee if we win results. Working this way makes our services available to everyone, no matter what.
  • What Should I Do If a Drug/Medical Device I Use Was Recalled?

    If you use a pharmaceutical product or medical device that was recalled, it’s important to call your physician to learn what steps to take next. Then, call Arnold & Itkin to learn your options for compensation.
  • Can I File a Drug or Medical Injury Claim for a Loved One?

    Yes, you can file a claim on behalf of a loved one, under specific circumstances. For example, the spouse of a person killed by a dangerous device can file a wrongful death claim. Or, the parents of a child suffering from the effects of a medication can file a claim.
  • What Should I Do If I Was Hurt by a Medical Device?

    State and federal law impose a strict duty on medical device manufacturers to make sure they use care and conduct extensive testing before they put their products on the market. They need to be aware of any possible side effects, and they need to inform doctors and patients about these risks. Consult your physician if you believe you may be suffering harm because of a medical device. If your doctor confirms, seek legal assistance. You may be able to bring a product liability action that can provide compensation for the costs you've incurred. You may also be eligible for lost past and future income as well as the pain and suffering you have endured.
  • How Do Medical Devices Get FDA Approval?

    When a medical device requires FDA clearance, there are two ways for it to get on the market. To gain premarket approval, the manufacturer must demonstrate through clinical trials that the device can be safely used for intended purposes. Premarket notification, on the other hand, allows for clearance of device that is shown to be "substantially equivalent" in safety and effectiveness to another device that has already been cleared by the FDA. This is commonly called the 510(k) process.
  • How Do Dangerous Medical Devices Reach the Market?

    Problems arise when medical device manufacturers withhold certain negative results in clinical trials that would undermine claims that their device is safe and effective, or when the manufacturer misrepresents the intended use for their product in a bid to get it to market quickly through the 510(k) process. This is often referred to as "off-label" usage. Off-label usage may also include marketing the product for a use it was not intended for. This can cause serious medical harm to its recipients. Sometimes pharmaceutical manufacturers include side effects on their labels, but downplay their severity. There are many ways manufacturers can manipulate the system to get their product on the market, and the motivation is almost always money at the expense of safety.
