Texas Drug Injury Lawyer
When you go to the doctor for a medical ailment and the doctor prescribes medication, you don’t question it, right? We typically trust the medication we’ve just been prescribed will help our condition and improve our lives. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case.
Pharmaceuticals Are Big Business
Pharmaceutical companies have been known to ignore test results or fail to test their products properly while aggressively pitching them to doctors, encouraging them to prescribe the drugs to their patients.
Serious side effects can cause permanent damage or even death.
Time and time again, pharmaceutical companies have been found negligent as they push their drugs on doctors and patients. Many common drugs, in fact, have been shown to cause terrible side effects. The list of drugs that have been found to have adverse effects that have been covered up by pharmaceutical companies continues to increase as the companies put profits before safety.
The Food and Drug Administration is constantly issuing recalls of drugs because of this reason or requiring drug manufacturers to include black box warnings, the strongest possible, to warn patients of potential serious side effects.
If you or someone you love has had serious side effects from taking any prescription medication, you should call an experienced drug injury attorney immediately. We will thoroughly investigate the case to determine if the manufacturer did not sufficiently warn consumers about the drug’s possible dangers or if there was a design or manufacturing defect in the product that made it unreasonably dangerous. We’ll do everything we can to make sure that you are treated fairly and that the drug manufacturer is held responsible for their negligence.
What are my options?
If the manufacturer is negligent, you deserve compensation to cover the costs of hospital stays, rehabilitation, physical therapy, additional medication, and even emergency surgery. You also may be entitled to receive compensation for the mental and emotional strain you and your family endured.
