Shreveport Dangerous Drug Attorney
Dangerous Medications and Defective or Recalled Drugs
First you see glowing advertisements on the benefits of using a pharmaceutical
product for sleeplessness, anxiety, weight loss or depression. A few years
later, you may hear that the very same drug is now recalled due to the
amount of injury and loss of life its use has caused.
This pattern continues despite tight regulation by the FDA (Food &
Drug Administration) concerning the testing and closely supervised clinical
trials which must be conducted and the results reported when a drug company
wants to put a new product on the market. If you have suffered injury
because of a dangerous drug, you need to
consult a Shreveport personal injury attorney from our firm about filing a claim for damages.
Drug-Related Illnesses & Injuries
Doctors know that some medications often interact with other medications
in a dangerous or even deadly way. Oftentimes, even a doctor can be unaware
of the possible side effects of newer medications. They depend upon the
FDA to carefully screen pharmaceuticals for being too dangerous to use.
They must depend upon the pharmaceutical company which manufactures the
product to inform them of both the benefits and the risks connected with
each drug. Unfortunately, even common over the counter (OTC) medications
can have serious and even fatal side effects, some far more deadly than
the condition they were meant to alleviate.
The following, and other so-called psychiatric drugs, have proven to cause
suicidal and homicidal tendencies after use:
Pharmaceuticals touted to relieve sleep difficulties, asthma and allergies
have been found to cause kidney damage, liver failure, stroke, cancer
catastrophic injuries. It has become the job of a dangerous drug lawyer to protect the public
from defective pharmaceutical products. Anyone who has been injured or
the surviving family of anyone who has suffered a fatal event from using
a dangerous medication may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses,
pain and suffering, and punitive damages.
