Pharmaceutical Defects

Pharmaceutical products are often an essential element of medical treatment. They can assist with a range of conditions, from heartburn and headaches to glaucoma and seizure control. When taking medication, we typically assume that these products are safe and well-tested. Despite the overwhelming benefits of pharmaceuticals, however, there are still defective products that come onto the market and pose a threat to all consumers. Additionally, pharmaceutical companies are, at their core, for-profit organizations, who make more money from selling as many of their products as possible. This mentality encourages some companies to sell drugs with overestimated benefits or without appropriate warnings, allowing unsafe pharmaceutical products to enter the market.

You should not have to suffer the consequences of a pharmaceutical company’s irresponsible actions. If you have have been harmed by a defective or otherwise dangerous pharmaceutical product, you can fight back. An experienced attorney can help you build a case against the company at fault, and you may be able to receive compensation for your suffering. These companies must be held responsible for the dangerous products they produce and taking legal action is the best way to start.

Dangerous Pharmaceuticals

In order for a pharmaceutical drug to become available for purchase and use, it must undergo review by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This federal agency is responsible for ensuring that medical, food, and cosmetic products are either safe for human use or have proven benefits that outweigh the risks. The review process is extensive for all drugs that come onto the market and includes a multitude of tests and research intended to reveal the efficacy of and possible complications with the product.

Despite these extensive regulations, sometimes unsafe drugs still become available and cause consumers serious harm. If you believe you have suffered an injury or illness due to a pharmaceutical product consider taking steps such as:

  • Acquiring medical records and confirmation that your illness or injury was caused by the pharmaceutical product
  • Research if the product has caused similar problems for other individuals, which indicates a danger inherent to the product
  • Document your usage of the product to demonstrate that you used the drug for its intended purpose and it was, nonetheless, unreasonably dangerous
  • Hire a skilled lawyer to help build your case and gather crucial evidence against the pharmaceutical company

After having the door shut in my face, countless times I met with James and Scott, who agreed to take the case to see what he could do. Each time , throughout the process I called the office, no matter who I spoke to or why I called, everyone made me feel like a valued client.
