Large pharmaceutical companies earn billions of dollars every year by the drugs they release into the market. Most of these drugs are invaluable in helping otherwise ill patients get back to full health. However, when these companies choose to put money over the safety of those who are purchasing and relying on their drugs, they need to be held liable for their actions. If you have suffered an adverse reaction to prescription drugs or have used a drug that has later been recalled, start looking for a lawyer for your dangerous drug case in Coral Gables. You can even talk to a Coral Gables personal injury lawyer on our team to start a claim against the organization responsible.
Some drug manufacturers intentionally release a drug to the public even though they are fully aware of the fact that they could lead to serious side effects in those using them. In other cases, drugs were not properly tested or were rushed through production in order to meet a deadline and increase profits. Recently, drugs like Zoloft, SSRI's, and Accutane have been making headlines due to the serious side effects it has been discovered that they cause. If you suffered because of a dangerous drug, you could be legally entitled to file a personal injury lawsuit. Similar to other commercial products, prescription drugs are also at risk to be defectively designed, manufactured, or marketed to the public in a manner that exposes consumers to unreasonable risk.
Some of the most noteworthy drugs that have been the subject of safety concerns include the following:
Once a drug has been released to the public, it is the responsibility of the FDA and medical professionals to continue to monitor the drug in order to be aware of the adverse drug side effects and risks. Some prescription drugs have been shown to be associated with wrongful deaths, severe injuries and other ill-effects. Unfortunately, many patients do not believe that their side effects are due to negligence on the part of a medical company or medical professional, and they wrongly believe that their suffering is simply a part of the medication.
