Dangerous Drug Attorney Corpus Christi

Helping Those at the Mercy of Drug Manufacturers

Many Americans are grateful to the drug companies that develop medicines to heal us when we’re sick. Unfortunately, we are seeing a growing list of drugs being linked to dangerous - and even deadly - side effects. If you’ve been harmed by a dangerous drug, attorney Scott Nelson, serving Corpus Christi and surrounding Texas locations, would like to speak with you about your legal rights.

Scott Nelson has years of experience with dangerous drug litigation, and has successfully recovered financial compensation for numerous families affected by these unsafe products. Our firm is currently accepting claims involving the drugs mentioned on this page. Contact our personal injury law firm for more details.


LEVAQUIN® belongs to a class of antibiotics called fluroquinolones, used to treat and prevent certain bacterial infections in the urinary tract, upper respiratory tract, and prostate. LEVAQUIN® has reportedly been linked to some serious side effects, including tendon damage and rupture, especially among the elderly and those taking corticosteroids. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ordered the manufacturer, Ortho-McNeil-Janssen Pharmaceuticals, to include a warning on LEVAQUIN®’s packaging, warning consumers of the risks associated with taking the drug.

If you’ve taken LEVAQUIN® and suffered tendonitis or other tendon damage, contact attorney Scott Nelson today.


A popular oral contraceptive, YAZ® has been associated with some dangerous, and even deadly, injuries. YAZ®’s manufacturer, Bayer Health Care Pharmaceuticals, faces claims that women who take the birth control pills may experience health problems such as blood clots, stroke, heart attack, and gallbladder disease. A YAZ® ingredient called drospirenone allegedly increases the risk of these health complications.

If you or a loved one has taken YAZ® birth control pills and experienced health problems, contact dangerous drug attorney Scott Nelson at his Corpus Christi office today.

Avandia®, a medication prescribed to individuals with type-2 diabetes, is the subject of claims that those taking the drug have also experienced negative health effects, including heart attack, congestive heart failure, loss of vision, and liver failure. The FDA issued a black box warning for Avandia® in 2007, warning consumers of potential health problems associated with the drug.

If you or a loved one has suffered health problems after taking Avandia®, attorney Scott Nelson would like to speak with you about your legal rights. Contact our firm today.


Approved by the FDA in 2006, Chantix® is a prescription smoking cessation drug that is meant to curb nicotine cravings and alleviate withdrawal symptoms by blocking the brain receptors responsible for the pleasurable effects of smoking. However, in 2009, the FDA issued a public warning, citing the risk of neuropsychiatric symptoms in patients taking Chantix®; these symptoms include depression, agitation, hostility, and suicidal thoughts and behavior. If you or a loved one has experienced any of these symptoms, please contact our law firm today.

Used to ease pain stemming from arthritis, Bextra® is non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug that was pulled from the market in 2005 by its manufacturer, Pfizer.

If you’ve experienced heart problems after taking Bextra®, please contact dangerous drug attorney Scott Nelson at his Corpus Christi office.


Accutane® is a prescription acne medication which is also used to treat some cases of rosacea and other skin disorders.

If you’ve developed a gastrointestinal disorder while taking Accutane®, our attorney would like to speak with you. You could be entitled to significant financial compensation.
