Defective Drugs

defective drug attorneys jacksonvilleEvery year thousands of Americans are injured by dangerous and defective drugs, both over-the-counter and prescription. In some cases, it´s because the FDA and drug companies have failed to act quickly enough when recalling or warning about dangerous drugs. Other times, pharma­cists and doctors share the blame for prescribing dangerous combi­na­tions of drugs without obtaining a suffi­cient medical history of a patient to ensure that contraindi­ca­tions do not occur.

When your doctor prescribes a drug to help you take care of or overcome a health problem, you trust that it will be safe and effective. However, prescription drugs, over-the-counter remedies, and herbal health supple­ments can have dangerous, sometimes life-threat­ening, side effects, including kidney failure, heart attack, stroke, and even wrongful death.

Further, it’s important for you to stay informed about product recalls, what drugs have caused problems and what you can do to protect yourself and your family from becoming victims.
