Legal Help for the Injured
When a person sustains serious reactions, side effects, including addiction, or dies after taking prescription medication or over-the-counter drugs, a drug injury lawsuit may be possible.
In the US, pharmaceutical, prescription, and over-the-counter drugs are approved by the Food and Drug Administration. However, even with oversight, drugs may cause permanent or long-term side effects ranging from mild to severe. When this happens, companies or the FDA may issue a drug recall.
Whether incomplete testing, withheld information, or other unforeseen complications are to blame for drug injuries, serious and unexpected side effects can be frustrating, frightening, and costly. Medical bills that may already have been steep may increase, and drug injury complications might put you out of work or limit your inability to function regularly.
If you believe you are not responsible for drug injuries or have questions about your experience with pharmaceutical or drug products, call our KNR Canton drug injury attorneys at (330) 488-1234 to schedule a free initial consultation.
A number of drugs have been involved in personal injury lawsuits over the years. A number of factors could be behind this: poor or inadequate testing, not enough long-term data, irregular bodily reaction, improper prescription or dosage, or a defective product.
While there have been hundreds of FDA recalls and drug injury lawsuits, some of the well-known cases include:
Reportedly, 20% of medications prescribed by doctors fall into an “off label” category. This means the medication is on the market but not operating within the FDA’s approved label. Yet “off-label” prescriptions are common and legal. Doctors can prescribe them for any number of maladies not necessarily intended by the drug.
Any number of side effects while taking medication can point toward drug injuries. Although your doctor will often warn you about typical adjustment periods and minor side effects, major side effects might indicate something is wrong. Some symptoms to be mindful of when monitoring potential drug injury are:
If you start to experience any of these side effects or any additional intensive feelings while taking any kind of prescription or non-prescription drugs, you may be experiencing a drug injury and should seek medical treatment.
