Whether it is prescription medication, over the counter drugs, vitamins or supplements, American markets are flooded by a barrage of pills and medications and consumers are constantly pushed and pulled by the marketing campaigns of the latest and greatest drugs. The laundry list of side-effects rattled off at the end of medication commercials may sound amusing, but there is nothing humorous about the serious adverse drug reactions defective and unsafe drugs can cause.
Pharmaceutical companies and medication manufacturers constantly put pressure on the Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, to release drugs to the public quickly and with less stringent testing. The amount of drug recalls in the news is enough to show that this practice needs to end. Often, the tests are inconclusive and many times these drugs can cause severe physical injuries and illnesses. Some of the most common hazardous medications or drugs include:
- Yaz and Yasmin
There are numerous other products whose adverse side effects can cause extreme and life-altering injuries or illnesses. Pharmaceutical companies must be held accountable for releasing products they knew, or should have known, were unsafe for public consumption. If you became sick or were injured as a result of taking these or any other medications, drugs or supplements, or if you used a defective medical product, you may be eligible to receive compensation by filing a personal injury claim.
Fighting for Victims of Unsafe Drugs
Many of the victims who were injured or became sick as a result of taking medications used them with the intention of improving their lives, only to discover that company claims were false and the products they used were dangerous and harmful. To make matters worse, pharmaceutical companies are often extremely large and powerful and have seemingly unlimited resources and financial assets. Our firm wants victims of unsafe drugs to know that we are prepared to handle such cases and will fight on their behalf to be fairly compensated.
