Every day patients can have severe side effects and reactions to prescription drugs that can lead to injuries, life-long complications, or even death. Even though medical treatments can carry elements of risk, pharmaceutical companies are responsible to protect consumers by educating them on possible side effects or dangers the drug can cause. Some patients may unknowingly be taking prescriptions that are defective, unsafe, or not properly tested. Unsuspectingly, some drugs may not have been tested for long-term use and manufacturers may not know the adverse consequences.
In some cases, it may have already caused severe side effects in patients before the drug is recalled. If you have experienced severe side effects due to a defective or recalled prescription drug, defective drug lawyers in Lakeland may be able to assist you in filing a prescription drug lawsuit to help you get compensation for your losses.
Defective and Recalled Drugs
Prescription drugs are intended to help treat and cure health conditions, but if the drug is unsafe or defective, whether or not the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a formal recall, you may be entitled to pursue a bad drug lawsuit. If the drug has caused more harm than help, and the side effects were not clearly or accurately listed you may be able to seek financial compensation to cover lost wages, hospitalization, and treatment for your injury. Despite being tested by the FDA some prescription drugs can cause serious side effects caused by:
- Improper warning labels
- Prescription errors
- Pharmaceutical drug interactions
- Defective medical devices
