Millions of Americans take medications on a daily basis. For the most part, such individuals do not experience any side effects, or perhaps limited or minor side effects at worse. However, there is no doubt that some medications can produce extreme, frequent or even dangerous side effects that can lead to health complications for the individual using the medication in question. When this occurs, it could be a sign that the medication is defective.
Holding drug companies accountable
Although we would all like to think that pharmaceutical companies have our best interests in mind when they design and produce medication, the reality could be quite different in some circumstances. After all, these companies are oftentimes large and focused on profits. When such companies rush a medication to maximize profit and, as a result, individuals are injured or made ill, the companies need to be held accountable.
How we may be able to help you
At our law firm, we are no strangers to taking legal action to hold drug companies accountable for negligence. A defective drug could be flawed from the outside, or perhaps tainted in some way during the production process. Another common incident is when drug companies fail to adequately warn patients of the potential side effects associated with the use of the drug in question.
Pursuing legal action against a pharmaceutical company may seem daunting, but at our law firm we push these actions to attempt to get the results our clients need. For more information, please visit the defective drug overview section of our law firm’s website.
