Talk with a Defective Drugs Lawyer If You Feel a Prescription Drug or a Medical Device Harmed You

While using any prescription drug, surgical implant or medical device may have side effects, consumers have a reasonable expectation that a prescription drug or device should be more helpful than harmful. Unfortunately, some patients are prescribed drugs or devices that are dangerous or brought to market before they are tested for long-term complications. This may result in severe side effects or even loss of life. At Burnetti, P.A., our affiliated drug litigation attorneys are prepared to hold the pharmaceutical companies accountable when the results of taking the drug are more harmful than helpful to consumers.

The severity of the side effects depend on many different factors, including:

  • How long was the prescription taken
  • Did the patient immediately stop taking the medication after they started experiencing side effects
  • The patient’s medical history (including other prescribed medications)
