Just Because a Doctor Prescribes a Drug Doesn’t Mean It’s not Dangerous or Defective

Just Because a Doctor Prescribes a Drug Doesn't Mean It's not Dangerous or Defective

Just Because a Doctor Prescribes a Drug Doesn't Mean It's not Dangerous or Defective

Today, the pharmaceutical industry is producing drugs aimed at just about every ailment known to man, adding years to nearly everyone’s life, if not outright saving them. They also enable us to live a better-quality lifestyle for a much longer period of time.

Regrettably, some of the drugs these companies manufacture can ultimately prove to be defective, as well as dangerous – and even deadly. Sometimes it may take years for the side effects to even emerge – which means that ultimately some drugs on the market may end up doing more harm than good.

Like any other for-profit corporate entity, pharmaceutical companies are motivated, in varying degrees, by profit. Sometimes profits are more important than people. Anyone who reads the newspaper knows this to be a fact. In many a lawsuit, a pharmaceutical company will be charged with having known full well about some harmful side effect tied to its flagship billion-dollar powerhouse drug – in some instances, many years in advance of this fact’s public disclosure. Companies hide clinical evidence that a drug may be defective in order to gain the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)’s approval, and to not create obstacles to sales.

Prescription drugs with deadly or dangerous side effects are sometimes rushed to market without adequate testing, and often people are injured or die before the FDA can identify these drugs as having dangerous side effects that can far outweigh whatever benefits the marketing group had touted.

When an FDA classification leads to a drug recall and when an injury occurs, a lawsuit is frequently filed; drug recall lawsuits typically fall into a range of categories, including drug injury, product liability or medical malpractice lawsuits against drug companies.

If you or a loved one have been injured as a result of a prescription drug, you may have valuable legal rights. Parker Waichman LLP urges you to contact us by completing the form at right or call us at 1-800-YOURLAWYER (1-800-968-7529).
