When most people think of the typical lawsuit, they probably think of slip-and-fall cases or cases that occur based on a car accident. While these are indeed fairly typical personal injury lawsuits, there are other forms of negligence and recklessness that can lead to legal action in Texas. Dangerous prescription drugs, for example, can cause just as much – if not more – harm as a car accident or a slip-and-fall incident.
The main difference, probably, is that most people don’t think it is possible to stand up to huge pharmaceutical companies and allege that a negligent act has occurred. This is the so-called “David versus Goliath” perception. However, our readers in Texas should know that where there is a valid claim with a good legal basis to attempt to hold negligent drug companies responsible for their actions, there is probably the option to pursue litigation.
Keeping unsafe prescription drugs out of the market is a vital concern. Victims who have suffered an illness or injury based on a faulty prescription drug may be primarily concerned with their own unique situation, but holding drug companies responsible will help many others.
At our law firm, we work with Texas residents who believe that they have been the victim of a prescription drug that has caused more problems than it has solved. We do our best to make sure our clients have the most up-to-date information so that they can make informed decisions.
