Nobody knows about the intricacies of pharmaceutical medicine better than the doctors and medical professionals who prescribe them to us – or so we assume.
When we get prescribed a medication or medical device, we trust that the ones writing the prescription are perfectly knowledgeable and aware of the product’s safety, risks and effectiveness. If it wasn’t safe, they wouldn’t give it to us, and if there are risks, they would let us know.
Such is not always the case. Many times, a pharmaceutical injury will occur because a prescribed product is defective or dangerous. It may not even be the doctor’s fault. Even an experienced doctor can be fooled by a drug that has originally met approval by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) only to have unforeseen dangerous side effects or pose other significant health risks.
The truth is that the companies manufacturing and releasing the defective drugs should know better. In many cases, they do know better, yet they still knowingly sell products they know might cause serious or life threatening injuries. The effects these defective drugs can have on unassuming people and families can be devastating. A pharmaceutical injury can greatly harm the quality of your life or the life of a loved one, possibly causing permanent injury or even death.
Whether these companies willingly sell defective pharmaceuticals or they negligently overlooked a possible safety risk, they should be held legally accountable for their actions. If you have been affected by the actions of an irresponsible pharmaceutical company and its defective product, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, lost wages and suffering.
If the product that injured you has been RECALLED due to failing quality control standards of the FDA or its manufacturer, it is imperative that you talk to an attorney. You may potentially have a large cash sum owed to you if it can be proved the defective product is the cause for your pharmaceutical injury.
