How many times have you entrusted your physician’s judgment when they recommended a pharmaceutical that would better your quality of life? Almost everyone at some point has gone through this experience. However, due to the greed of the pharmaceutical industry, drugs are recalled annually due to the injuries sustained by those prescribed them.
While we have the Food and Drug Administration as watchdogs over our safety and to protect us from pharmaceutical injuries due to defective drugs, the FDA often fails to thoroughly test drugs before they are released to the public. Unfortunately, the pharmaceutical companies do not have the citizen’s best interests in mind neither, as countless dollars have been invested in medications. To prolong their release would hamper the industry’s profits.
People are put at risk when a pharmaceutical company releases a drug to the public without making sure it is safe. Pharmaceutical companies all too often dash to receive FDA approval without complete or proper testing. As a result of using such inadequately tested drugs, consumers have suffered serious personal injuries, and sometimes even death.
When you have sustained an injury due to defective drugs or inappropriately labeled bottles, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
However the law can be complex, it is so important to find an attorney who limits their practice to the type of legal issue with which you are faced.
