With medicine advancing every day, there are more and more prescription drugs on the market touting health benefits to the public. You can get a prescription to better you mood, improve memory skills and even stop your legs from being restless at night.
And with all these products on the market, there are times when a defective drug may come into play. Whether it’s being rushed to the market without adequate investigation or testing never showed such side effects, there are ultimately some products that cause more harm than good.
If you’ve been injured or you think you’ve been injured by a prescription drug, we’ll want to evaluate your case fully to understand where the fault of your injuries may lie.
The first way to look at whether a drug is typically bad for someone is to look at its records. Are there recorded events of negative reactions (these are called adverse drug events)? These reports show whether or not someone else has had this same issue as you. We look at the warning label of the drug and even have it tested by our own medical experts to determine whether there is a defect in the drug.
We want to assist you in evaluating your drug claim. Drug manufacturers have a legal and moral responsibility to make safe products. These companies need to be held accountable if they are causing harm, not only to you by ways of compensating you for your injuries but by showing in a court that they are harming others and this cannot continue. If you’ve been injured by a drug, be sure to consult an attorney about your legal rights.
