New York Dangerous Drugs Attorneys
We Fight to Hold Drug Manufacturers Accountable
Manufacturers of prescription and over-the-counter drugs bear a responsibility to develop products that are safe for public consumption. When they fail to meet this standard, innocent lives can be needlessly shattered and lost. The New York dangerous drugs lawyers of Rheingold Giuffra Ruffo & Plotkin LLP help people who have been harmed by dangerous drugs, as well as those whose loved ones died due to taking harmful or defective drugs. We have extensive experience handling mass tort claims and individual drug liability cases for people who need skilled legal guidance.
Drug manufacturers are expected to ensure their products are safe. If this responsibility has not been met and you were injured by a pharmaceutical, call (888) 260-0473 for a free consultation.

What to Do If You Believe You Were Affected by a Dangerous Drug
If you believe that your injuries or condition or the death of your loved one was due to a dangerous or defective drug, it’s important that you contact an attorney right away. In New York, you generally only have three years to file your claim. This means that if you do not file a claim within three years of the date of being injured, you will not be able to take legal action and seek compensation for your losses. We encourage you to act quickly, as evidence can be more difficult to find over time. The sooner you reach out to our New York defective drug lawyers, the sooner we can begin building your case and fighting for your recovery.
