In America today, we live in a society that is flooded with prescription and over-the-counter drugs. This can be a good or bad thing. While some prescription drugs are of great use, others can be dangerous and addictive. When drug companies make dangerous mistakes with prescription medication, or even over-the-counter medication, those companies need to be held accountable for the harm they cause.
For most Texas residents, it is beyond belief that a drug company would keep a dangerous drug on the market. But, the unfortunate reality is that this happens all too often. When you think about it, we have all seen commercials that advertise some pill or other medication that has a very specific benefit, but that also comes with a laundry list of potential side effects. Despite all of the testing that occurs before medications are released, sometimes drug companies know that the “cons” outweigh the “pros” and they release the drug anyways. In other instances, drug makers simply fail to disclose potential side effects because they belief the risk of those side effects presenting is miniscule. Regardless of a company’s intentions, a hazardous product poses a significant risk to consumers and can leave them seriously injured.
As our readers can imagine, legal claims based on these types of circumstances can be rather difficult to handle. It is important to establish a timeline of what the drug company knew and when it was known. Then, it takes diligent and patient pursuit of the claim.
