Dangerous Drugs

A Kentucky dangerous drug attorney can help people who have been injured or harmed by a defective medication. Most people, at some point in their lives, will need to take either over-the-counter or prescription medication to overcome one illness or another. Most people will not even think twice about taking those drugs, especially when doctors say they will make you feel better or improve your health. An increasing amount of drugs put on the market have been taken off the shelf or recalled because of their potentially dangerous side effects as well as the serious health risks associated with the use of those drugs. Unfortunately, some drugs have already caused serious injury and even death to some consumers.

Dangerous Drugs Risks

New drugs are put on the market each year with pharmaceutical companies advertising these drugs to have great benefits regardless of the possibility that some of them can have dangerous side effects. Unfortunately, some of these advertising claims can be false and misleading and people are far too often victims of serious injury and even wrongful death due to complications from dangerous drugs. Some of the potentially dangerous side effects involved with using defective drugs include the following:

  • Dizziness
  • Angina
  • Heart attack
  • Stomach ulcers
  • High blood pressure
  • Vision problems
  • Depression or suicide
  • Swelling of the extremities
  • Increased risk of stroke

In some cases, makers of drugs rush their product to market without thoroughly investigating possible complications. The pharmaceutical industry has major financial interests and some companies have even tried to hide any negative test results that could prove adverse side effects of their drug so they can get it on the market as fast as possible when in fact some of those drugs can cause more harm than good.

How a Kentucky Dangerous Drug Attorney Can Help

Drug makers have a duty to provide safe products. If there are risks of harm associated with their products, they also must provide adequate warnings. If a drug maker fails to fulfill this duty, it could be held liable in lawsuits for injuries that may result.

People injured by bad drugs may be eligible to recover money for:

  • Medical Expenses
  • Lost Wages
  • Pain and Suffering

The families of those who have died may be eligible to recover money for funeral expenses and the pain that comes with losing a loved one.
