Dangerous drug attorneys can help people who have suffered injuries from the side effects of their medications. Drug makers have the legal responsibility to adequately test and research medications prior to placing them on the market for public sale. If a patient takes a drug and subsequently suffers from injury, life-threatening complications or death, the manufacturer of the drug could be held responsible. Affected patients and their families may be able to file a lawsuit and recover compensation from those responsible.

What are Dangerous Drugs?
A dangerous drug can be defined as any product on the market, whether it is provided over-the-counter or via prescription, that allegedly causes injuries, complications, adverse side effects or death. Although the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) exists to test and approve medications available to patients in the U.S., the agency is not always able to catch each complication or side effect from every drug that is placed on the market. The agency’s adverse event reporting system exists to review complaints and reports of patients allegedly experiencing side effects from a particular medication. Should the agency receive a significant number of cases, it may or may not decide to reevaluate the medication and conduct additional clinical trials to investigate the safety of the product.
If a drug is determined to cause widespread injury to patients, the manufacturer may issue a recall for the drug, with the assistance of the FDA. Dangerous drug attorneys can help patients injured by recalled or other harmful medications.
How Dangerous Drug Attorneys Can Help
Dangerous drug lawsuits are often complex and involve issues that require the assistance of a lawyer. Pharmaceutical companies have more resources than the average person. Proving that a drug maker is responsible for producing a defective product may often be complicated and costly due to the expert knowledge and testimony of the pharmacology that most dangerous drug lawsuits require.
For this reason, it may be in your best interest to seek legal counsel from dangerous drug attorneys to help you as you seek the appropriate compensation for your particular situation. Experienced dangerous drug attorneys have experience in representing clients against the pharmaceutical giants and can stand up for your legal rights.
