Defective Drug & Pharmaceutical Litigation Lawyer

Dangerous Drugs and Drug Recalls

Defective drugs and over-the-counter medications can cause life-changing side effects. Large pharmaceutical companies often rush new drugs into the marketplace. Some medications are sold despite lack of proper testing or a comprehensive analysis of potential side effects. In some cases, it is discovered that drug companies knew of possible adverse reactions that they did not disclose to the public. As drug manufacturers rake in profits, the consumers are left with serious medical conditions with which they may have to deal for the rest of their lives. When drug companies manufacture and distribute dangerous products, it is important that they are held responsible for their wrongdoing.

Many drugs are allowed in the marketplace despite having known, inherent dangers. Some may even be defective drugs. Drugs that have negative consequences that outweigh their effectiveness are often recalled. In the year 2009, the FDA reported over 1,742 drug recalls. A significant number of those recalls were related to manufacturing lapses, a low quality of raw materials, defective labeling and contamination.

The Importance of Pharmaceutical Litigation

It is necessary and important to expose drug companies when they knowingly put consumers in danger. Furthermore, pharmaceutical litigation is often the only way for injured victims to receive the justice and financial support they need. Unsafe medications can cause severe medical conditions such as heart attacks, strokes, liver damage, bone density issues and even death. A successful lawsuit against a drug manufacturer can result in financial compensation for all of the resulting medical bills and other related damages suffered by victims and their families.

Receiving Financial Support

There are legal options available for victims of dangerous drugs. If you are experiencing unforeseen side effects, please contact your doctor right away.
