While many patients use prescription drugs with little to no side effects, some medications are known to be defective. Some of the most recent dangerous drug lawsuits have involved prescription medications such as:
These drugs have been known to cause life-altering damage.
How Are Victims Exposed to Dangerous Drugs?
Because pharmaceutical manufacturing is a multi-billion dollar business, it is not uncommon for companies to rush a drug's release into the market before it has been properly tested. In some cases, drug manufacturers have even purposefully withheld evidence of dangerous side effects from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to gain faster product approval.
Consequently, even though a drug may be FDA-approved, it does not mean it is safe for use.
Types of Injuries Caused by Defective Drugs
Injuries resulting from dangerous drugs are often catastrophic and have lasting effects on victims' lives. Common examples include:
- Birth defects
- Blindness and vision problems
- Depression and suicide
- Heart attack
- Impulse control disorders
- Kidney failure
If you have been injured by an unsafe drug, it is essential that you seek the advice of a personal injury attorney immediately.
Why You Need an Attorney
Drug manufacturers have the financial resources and aggressive legal counsel to fight dangerous drug lawsuits. It is not only intimidating to face such forces, but is also often nearly impossible to do so on your own.
Additionally, defective drug cases can be especially complex. Without in-depth knowledge of the laws that pertain to these lawsuits, it is extremely difficult to properly protect yourself and your case. An experienced personal injury attorney can fight on your behalf so that you achieve the best possible outcome.
