Drug companies aggressively compete against each other to supply our store shelves with new pharmaceutical drug, each claiming that their product is more effective than the products sold by their competitors. In the manufacturers’ haste to reap huge profits, safety issues are often bypassed or overlooked, placing innocent victims in harms way. If you or a loved one has been injured or harmed as a result of taking a dangerous medicine or defective medication, a dangerous drug lawyer can help you hold the pharmaceutical company accountable. Even the store or pharmacy who sold you the medication can be held liable for selling the defective drug to you.
A particular medication can be defective or dangerous because of its design or composition (the way it was manufactured) or it can be dangerous because of inadequate warning. Dangerous or defective drugs can cause all kinds of injuries, from loss of senses, to birth defects, to organ failure, and in some cases death. If you have been injured or harmed by a defective or dangerous medication, the law protects you by holding an entire chain of distributors and sellers responsible for your injuries. The drug companies have legal teams set up and ready to defend against the inevitable claim that they released a dangerous or defective products into the marketplace. The goal of these legal teams is to attempt to put up an impenetrable wall in an effort to force you to settle your claim for a fraction of what you are legally entitled to. A San Diego dangerous drug lawyer will help you pursue your claim and enforce your legal rights to the fullest extent possible, so that you can obtain the maximum compensation available under the law for your injuries or loss.
In the multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical drug industry, manufacturers earn huge profits by bringing to market new prescription and over-the-counter medicines, and they do so as quickly as possible. In their rush to flood store shelves and pharmacies with new over-the-counter medications and prescription drugs, some medications do not receive adequate testing or proper labeling. For example, if you have suffered liver failure as the result of taking Tylenol and drinking alcohol at the same time, your defective drug attorney can help you bring a claim for injuries on the ground that Tylenol contained an inadequate warning about the dangers of drinking while taking Tylenol, which has actually caused liver failure for many people who took Tylenol and drank alcohol at the same time.
There are a multitude of types of dangerous and defective drugs that have caused injury to consumers, either as a result of defective manufacture, inadequate testing or improper labeling of the product. You may have heard about the dangers of many of these drugs on a Tylenol liver failure lawyer TV commercial or similar ads on your local television or radio station. Common medications that personal injury attorneys believe to be dangerous or defective include: Tylenol; Prozac; Ambien; Actos; Paxil; Zoloft; Yaz & Yazmin; Viagra & Cialis; Accutane; and Ritalin; among others.
