Prescription Drugs Can Cause Injury and Death
Every day patients are injured by dangerous prescription drugs. A medication or dose that is safe for one person may injure another person. Approval by the FDA is no guarantee of drug safety.
If a dangerous drug has caused harm to you or a family member, our product liability attorneys can explain the law and your rights. At Jacobs & Dow in New Haven, Connecticut, we represent injured people, not drug companies.
Every Drug Has Side Effects; Some of Those Side Effects Are Dangerous
Though sometimes expensive to develop, prescription drugs are very profitable. The faster a drug gets to market, the sooner the profits begin for the drug company. In their rush to market, pharmaceutical companies may ignore side effects and bad reactions during the testing process, or may not properly acknowledge problems with the drugs after it goes to market.
Many common drugs in the marketplace may be dangerous to you or a loved one. Arthritis drugs, birth control drugs, pain pills, diet drugs, dyes used in MRIs and other medications can cause adverse, dangerous reactions. Those reactions may include seizures, heart attacks, strokes, liver and kidney damage, lung damage and other reactions. If you suspect that a dangerous drug has harmed you or a loved one, tell our product liability lawyers about it.
