Around 100 drugs each year receive a Class I recall from the FDA. This is the most serious kind of recall and totally removes a product from the market. If the public is fortunate, these serious issues are found before anyone gets hurt. Sometimes, they’re not.
If you’ve been hurt by a drug or had a loved one die from a drug sold on the market, don’t hesitate. Call our defective drugs lawyers in Englewood. The team at Morelli Law has years of experience fighting for the rights of victims against the might of pharmaceutical companies.
Our History of Fighting Defective Drug Cases
In addition to being co-counsel on major mass tort drug cases like Vioxx and Advantia, our main partner, Benedict Morelli, helped achieve the largest vaccine injury payout in American history so far. In that case, a man suffered from polio that was caught through changing his daughter’s diaper.
In that case, the Orimune vaccine had live polio inside it and caused permanent paralysis in our client. The jury awarded the family $22.5 million. Since then, Mr. Morelli has helped us fight many other defective drug cases.
Now it’s your turn to receive help for your drug injury. Pharmaceutical companies have huge pockets and skilled lawyers of their own. You don’t want to face them without having equal experience on your side. You’ll find that experience at Morelli Law Firm.

Who Gets Sued in Defective Drug Cases?
After determining you’ve been injured by a drug, a question arises. Who is responsible for the defect? It could be the drug manufacturer, but there are other possible parties. They could be solely responsible, or could share liability.
Sometimes, these drug companies cut corners on testing to push a product to market, but sometimes, it’s the testing lab that made an error and gave the manufacturer faulty information. The fault may also lie in a doctor, pharmacist, distributor, or anyone else who had contact with your drug lot.
For example, if a drug must be kept cold and it arrived at its destination too warm, that would make it defective. The fault there would fall on whoever was responsible for the break in the cooling system, though additional fault could fall on whoever accepted the warmed shipment.
What Is the Deadline to Get My Case Started?
Under New Jersey law, you have two and a half years to get your defective drug case started before you breach the statute of limitations. This is a deadline to tell the court you may have a case. This deadline protects all the parties.
The longer you wait to start your case, the harder it is to get accurate evidence. Memories fade and records get lost or purged as time goes on. You can stop the clock with the help of a lawyer. Even if the case takes much longer, your lawyer’s actions will pause the clock.
There’s also the simple fact that the sooner you start, the sooner you can get compensation. Even if you’re not sure yet how much you’ve been injured, your lawyer will know how to get the evidence to see just how much you’re eligible to receive.
