Our experienced Baton Rouge, Louisiana drug injury lawyers are not afraid of the courtroom and have the financial resources to take on powerful drug liability adversaries in serious personal injury and wrongful death cases. Paul H. Dué successfully tried one of the most significant drug injury cases in the United States when he took on an aspirin manufacturer that sold and marketed aspirin for children without sufficient warnings about the risk of Reye's Syndrome. The brain damaged child was awarded over $12,000,000 from the aspirin manufacturer, and the Louisiana reported decision of Sharkey v. Sterling Drug provided a road-map for all Reye's Syndrome cases that followed against aspirin manufacturers. Other representative drug injury cases handled by our Baton Rouge, Louisiana drug injury attorneys include a mis-filled seizure medication that caused a brain damaged child to suffer a gran-mal seizure, aspirate and die in Lafayette; a mis-prescribed antibiotic that caused Stevens-Johnson Syndrome in Baton Rouge; and a methadone overdose in a chronic pain patient in Monroe.
