It is a common misconception that all pharmaceutical and prescription drugs introduced in the United States are safe for use after having been thoroughly tested.
However, this idea can be dangerously incorrect at times as various drugs are released in the market prematurely before they undergo sufficient examination and testing. Prematurely released drugs could cause more harm than good and often lead individuals with worse health problems or injuries in compared to what they originally used the drug to treat.
An additional problems with prematurely and unsatisfactory tested prescription drugs is that often time they are released on the market mislabeled. The large corporate manufacturers of these drugs fail to warn users of potential side effects relating to the drug. In some circumstances, the manufacturers fail to limit the drug’s use as to certain aspects of the population, for example, pregnant women. The mislabeling of the drugs can often result in unwanted and unnecessary side effects deeply impacting one’s health or unintended consequences and injuries.
If you’ve been injured as a result of a defective or mislabeled drug, it is important to speak to an attorney to preserve your rights. It is important to bring an action as soon as possible as different states have different limitations on the time in which you can bring such claims. No person should be subjected to danger from a prescribed drug and it is important to hold the manufacturers of the drug responsible. It is worth mentioning, in circumstances where an individual used a defective drug it is typically not the doctor’s fault. The doctor is relying on the same readily available information that we all are in the marketplace. The fault falls squarely with the drug manufacturers and the claims will be directly against them.
