Pharmaceutical companies can be held liable when their prescription medications cause serious injury or death. Whether or not the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a recall, companies that manufacture drugs that cause injuries and fatalities may be held responsible for the damage caused by their products. Drugs with “black box warning labels” are known to cause serious side effects and injuries, but many consumers are not aware of the danger. When you call Shelton Davis, PLLC, your lawyer will work to hold the pharmaceutical company responsible for your injury.
A number of drugs on the market have been linked to serious complications, such as heart attack, stroke, kidney failure, psychotic breaks, suicide, internal bleeding, gastrointestinal problems, and many other issues.
The FDA requires pharmaceutical manufacturers conduct tests and trials before a drug is approved for use. Unfortunately, the FDA relies on the manufacturer to submit information for drug approval. Often, the pharmaceutical companies seek doctors and researchers who will validate the safety and downplay risk in order for the drugs to be improved.
