Dangerous Drug Attorneys in Tampa Assisting Those Harmed by Defective Drugs
Prescription drugs are intended to treat and cure ailments and increase the quality of life. Due to medical advances, as well as the increasing aging of the population, many doctors are prescribing drugs at a higher rate than in the past. While some prescription drugs do assist in treatments, on occasion the drug’s side effects are not thoroughly communicated, or the drug itself is faulty, and instead of benefiting the patient, the patient is harmed further by the medication. Defective drugs or drugs prescribed before they are tested for long-term complications can result in severe side effects or even loss of life. If you believe you are suffering due to the harmful effects of a dangerous prescription drug or the side effects of an unsafe or recalled medication, you may be entitled to pursue a dangerous drug lawsuit. Burnetti, P.A.’s class action lawsuit dangerous drug attorneys in Tampa may be able to help.
More Harmful Than Helpful
The Food and Drug Administration recalls defective drugs every day. Some pharmaceutical drug recalls include black box label warnings on prescription bottles. The increase in prescribing drugs has elevated the number of drugs being produced, sometimes without proper testing or warning labels. Even though medical treatments carry elements of risks, pharmaceutical companies are held responsible for educating their consumers on the dangers of the drugs and any possible side effects. If the drugs cause more harm than good, pharmaceutical companies should protect the safety of the consumer.
