All drugs have side effects. When they are properly disclosed, patients can make well informed decisions weighing the risks and benefits. When side effects are not disclosed, we are stripped of that ability. If you were injured by a dangerous drug you may be entitled to compensation.

At Rutberg Breslow Personal Injury Law, we handle cases of serious injury and wrongful death throughout New York State. In cases involving a dangerous drug in what is commonly known as a ‘class action”, we team up with a firm focusing on that particular drug, so that together our professional teams give your case the attention it deserves. Whether we handle a case ourselves or with our “class action” team, we are here to help you receive proper compensation for your injury or the loss of a loved one. Contact us for a free consultation.
