Pharmaceutical companies manufacture and market hundreds of new drugs each year. The Food and Drug Administration regulates and approves each product before it reaches the consumer. Every year over 200,000 people die from these drugs. It is estimated that more than 50% of all the drugs marketed to the American consumer have deleterious effects, in spite of testing and FDA regulation.
Of all the recent examples of harmful drugs, most were withdrawn from sale within 12 months of release. Drug companies still market some drugs even after evidence of serious side effects or death had been noted. By law, drug manufacturers are strictly liable for injuries if the product they sell is defective or unreasonably dangerous.
When your injuries are significant enough to cause a lifetime of pain and suffering, a quick and easy settlement from the insurance company is never enough to cover the future costs, suffering and emotional stress as a result of your injury from a defective drug. Catastrophic injuries such as heart attacks, paralysis, burns, brain damage, blood clots or even death have life-long effects on you and your family. This is when you need the advice and counsel of a compassionate, experienced, legal advocate dedicated completely to your cause.
