Dangerous Drug Litigation
When we purchase medications and drugs, we expect them to fulfill their intended purpose. Unfortunately, sometimes they have unintended adverse effects on the people who take them, causing serious harm. While the health consequences associated with dangerous pharmaceutical products may give outward signs, they can be silently and inwardly threatening the life of the person who took them.
If you have been sickened by an unsafe pharmaceutical product, you may be able to seek financial compensation through a civil lawsuit. To learn more about your legal rights and options, contact the Birmingham pharmaceutical litigation attorneys of Yearout & Traylor, P.C., at 205-414-8160.
Causes of Unexpected Pharmaceuticals
Modern pharmaceutical products are capable of assisting in the treatment of all manner of health conditions, and they rely on carefully calibrated mixtures of powerful chemicals to do so. It is a frustrating reality that when there are unreported side effects or something compromises the integrity of the drug which reaches the market consumers are the ones who suffer.
In some cases, pharmaceutical products are found to contain contaminants that hinder their ability to perform as intended, or worsen an already sick individual’s condition. These cases of contaminated drugs are usually corrected via drug recalls. Regrettably, recalls are typically not initiated until it is too late for some.
Additionally, sometimes drugs profess to have more benefits than they actually do. When pharmaceutical manufacturers think they can outright lie to consumers, it is a major problem that needs to be corrected.
