When we fill a prescription written by a doctor, we go to our local pharmacy with the belief that the drug is safe and will serve its intended purpose whether that be to kill pain, lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure, or treat infection. Often times, however, both prescription and over-the-counter medications have defects that make them dangerous and/or deadly. The experienced defective drug attorneys at Carr & Carr Attorneys at Law have represented hundreds of clients who have suffered due to a defective drug. The area of personal injury law that deals with defective drugs is called pharmaceutical titigation.
Some of the dangerous drugs we have dealt with are:
- Darvon or Darvocet
Defective drugs can cause serious personal injury and even death. And even though the Food and Drug Administration has strict laws governing all prescription drugs released to the public, sometimes drugs are marketed with defects, and those defects can cause serious problems.
When a pharmaceutical company releases a drug to the public, millions of people can be affected. Many defective drugs have been pulled from the market voluntarily by the drug manufacturer while other drugs have been forced off the market through an FDA recall. However by the time a certain drug is taken off the market, thousands, if not millions, of people may have been affected by the defective drug.
Drug companies must be held responsible for their negligence.
