Miami Prescription Drug Injury Attorney

We Will Give You the Answers You Deserve

If you have suffered serious harm caused by a defective drug, contact a drug recall lawyer at Ratzan Weissman & Boldt. We know you have many questions, and we will give you the answers you deserve.

Before a new drug can be sold to the public, it is put through a process called “clinical trials” where the drug is tested for safety, efficacy, toxicity and harmful side effects. Once approved, and long after the drug is on the market, the drug manufacturer must continue to monitor the drug to make sure it remains safe.

Because of such measures, we expect our medications to be safe and effective. The truth is many medications on the market today are unsafe. Defective drugs cause thousands of tragic injuries and fatalities every year.

The drug recall lawyers at Ratzan Weissman & Boldt have considerable experience litigating cases nationwide on behalf of people injured by dangerous drugs as well as defective medical devices. When people are injured in this way, we help them rise up, speak out, and get the compensation they deserve.

What Our Clients Say

Stuart [Ratzan] and his firm, and I'm adding his firm - not just Stuart - every single member of his staff treated me and my family, or whoever talked to him on my behalf as if they were just...family. Every single member of his staff - and that has gone on, it didn't just end when the case ended, it still continues, our relationship with the firm. RWB Client
During the worst time in my life, and after losing my son, the Ratzan team embraced me and my family. They actually became my family. I received excellent, professional and warm support from them to which I am very grateful. RWB Client
What I liked most [about working with RWB] was the way in which Stuart embraced us, the way in which he made us feel welcomed and that we were the only clients he had. You just got that feeling, you came to the office or you called him he was never too busy, he was never not available. Every single question he would ask you for your decision, he would want to clarify things, he was constantly back and forth telling you what the next steps were-totally transparent, there was not one decision he made without asking for your opinion. RWB Client
At one of the most uncertain times in our lives, we reached out to Ratzan law firm. They helped us uncover the truth and fought for our son so that he could get the care he needed due to medical negligence. Ratzan and Weissman were responsive and attentive to our case and working with them, on behalf of our son, was positive and rewarding. RWB Client
What I learned from the case over the period of about 2-3 years that it took, when I felt sometimes that I just wanted to give up and forget about it- there were too many things, what I came to learn is that the process and the extent of the investigations, the research that was done, the experts that were brought in, it gave me a full sense of what really happened with my Son that night. That brings me a lot of comfort, that I got to know exactly what happened and we got justice. RWB Client
The first takeaway for me [when it comes to my experience working with RWB] was Stuart's need to understand who we were and what my family was about. He actually came to the island [my home] for about three days to visit to get to know who my Son's friends were. He met his Godmother, he went to my Son's school, and we went to the cemetery to see the grave. To me, that was unbelievable, that an attorney would want to be part of who we were to really understand who it was that he was fighting for. RWB Client
I was blessed to find Ratzan Law Group for my case. From my first phone call to that office up until the end of my case, I felt lucky to have such a strong team on my side fighting for justice for me. They truly cared about me as a person. They treated me like family. Ratzan and his firm are patient and explain the process to you as you go along. When I didn’t have a ride to get to the office, they had a driver pick me up. It was so comforting to know that they were taking care of me, taking the burden off my shoulders. I had no doubt in my mind that God put me in the right hands. I will always be grateful and thankful for Ratzan and his team for protecting me, guiding me, and representing me in the hardest time of my life. RWB Client
I remember the deposition [where] one of the [defense] lawyers asked me "how much money would satisfy you"? This is really not about money and it wasn't about money for Stuart, I realized that - it was really about justice. This is what the trial afforded us - going through the process and getting justice. RWB Client
I, and my whole family, feel that we are blessed that RWB represented us during the most tragic time of our lives. They helped facilitate the legal process in a very professional manner. I always felt their support and protection. I have no words as to how satisfied I am not only with their legal services but also with the case results.

Yo, y toda mi familia, nos senitmos muy benedicidos que ésta firma de RWB nos representaron en un tiempo muy trájico en mi vida. Ellos me ayudaron con el proceso legal muy profesionalmente y muy humanamente. Siempre sentí que ellos me apollaban y me protegían y yo quedé muy satisfecho con los servicios legales y los resultados de mi caso.
RWB Client
I feel very fortunate that my family was able to work with Ratzan Weissman & Boldt as our attorneys during our family’s case. Throughout our case they treated our family with sensitivity, respect and kindness. Going through a malpractice lawsuit can be very emotional on a family, and they always understood and supported us. We never questioned any of the process because we knew they had our family’s very best interest at heart and wanted justice for our son. RWB Client
I cannot express my gratitude enough to my attorney Stuart Ratzan for representing me in my case. Mr. Ratzan and everyone his firm were kind and understanding about what I was going through. They held my hand through the whole process and really made everything as easy as possible. Stuart Ratzan did not just represent me, he defended me and not just the case. He made me feel that he really cared about me as a person, and understood what I went through. It’s a wonderful feeling knowing that Stuart Ratzan and his firm gave their all to obtain a fair compensation for me. I believe they are the best at what they do. RWB Client

Why a Skilled Drug Recall Lawyer is Needed

Taking on the drug manufacturers requires a drug recall lawyer with significant financial, technological and scientific resources, and the respect of the bench as well as their legal opponents.

If harmful side effects or complications associated with a drug occur, the pharmaceutical manufacturer must disclose this information to the FDA, physicians and consumers.

Failure to do so is negligence on the part of the pharmaceutical company and is grounds for legal action. That is where an experienced drug recall lawyer will level the playing field in the interest of the consumer.
