Dangerous drugs are prescription or over-the-counter medications that can cause serious physical, emotional and psychological injuries. These effects may occur because the drug is defective, or because it is not adequately labeled with a warning about the risks. In either case, pharmaceutical companies have a duty to ensure that their drugs are safe – and when they aren’t, they need to be held accountable.
How do dangerous drugs make it to market?
In order for a drug to be made available to the public, it must first be approved by the FDA. However, the FDA does not conduct testing for the drug approval process. Instead, it relies on the drug manufacturers to ensure the medications are safe and do not pose an unreasonable risk to patients.
Unfortunately, drug manufacturers are driven by profit – and a new drug can earn a company billions of dollars in just one year. As such, pharmaceutical companies may go to great lengths to ensure their drug gets FDA-approval by:
- Failing to conduct sufficient testing.
- Concealing or misrepresenting their test results.
Our lawyers are deeply committed to holding companies accountable when their actions result in a dangerous and defective drug achieving FDA approval and subsequently harming innocent people. As such, we will be your voice against the powerful drug manufacturers – and we will not rest until you receive the compensation you deserve.
