Damage Caused by Defective Drugs
Every day there seems to be some new prescription drug that is supposed to cure every ill known to man. Unfortunately, while some of these drugs can be helpful, more and more of them have extremely serious side effects that can lead to potentially fatal results. What’s worse, many of the pharmaceutical companies have falsified their studies, minimizing the risks of taking their drugs when in fact the effects were much more serious than believed. Drugs such as Zyprexa and Yaz have actually caused numerous deaths and left many with serious illnesses as a result of taking them as prescribed.
The pharmaceutical industry has been putting their corporate profits – which is in the tens of billions of dollars every year – ahead of public safety. The personal injury attorneys at the Malaise Law Firm feel strongly that the industry must be held accountable for defective drugs they have put on the market without proper warnings or even concern over the consequences. If you or a loved one has been injured or made ill due to a prescription drug, contact our office to find out what your legal options are.
