Lawsuits For Adverse Effects Of Dangerous Drugs
12 January 2012No Comments
The only way for consumers to make educated decisions about which medications are appropriate and safe for them to take is by gathering accurate and up-to-date information from drug companies, their doctors, and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Unfortunately, between the kickbacks some doctors collect for prescribing certain medications to patients, and the practice of drug companies concealing dangerous drug information from consumers, the potential for consumers to receive inadequate drug information is shockingly prevalent. If you have been injured by a dangerous drug, or if you lost a loved one due to a prescription medication side effect, contact the Corpus Christi drug injury attorneys at Bandas Law Firm today.

Although consumers typically understand that no drug is 100% safe, even widely used over-the-counter medications like Tylenol, few are aware of the potentially life-altering side effects they may be exposing themselves to by using certain pharmaceutical drugs.

Corpus Christi Dangerous Drug Injuries
Consumers in Corpus Christi and across the country depend on pharmaceutical companies and federal agencies like the FDA to keep them informed about the dangers of, among other things, prescription and over-the-counter medications. However, the unfortunate fact is that some drug manufacturing companies intentionally conceal the most serious side effects of their drugs in an effort to make their product more popular among consumers. The FDA, too, enforces somewhat inadequate regulations on drug firms, resulting in potentially dangerous drugs reaching the market for consumer use. Some of the most devastating dangerous drug injuries include:
- Birth injuries in newborns
- Liver failure
- Liver damage
- Bladder cancer
- Heart failure
- Heart disease
