Prescription drugs are often rushed to market without adequate testing. Their long-term effects are difficult to determine and tests we think are performed by the FDA are sometimes done by laboratories funded by the drug manufacturers themselves. Worse, it seems people have to suffer injury or die before a prescription medication recall is instituted. When an injury occurs and a lawsuit is filed, the case will be based on personal injury law and typically fall into subcategories such as pharmaceutical injury law, product failure or medical malpractice/negligence. Some lawsuits can also be based on improperly filled prescriptions. In a situation such as this, pharmacists would be held liable.
If you have suffered an injury, illness, or pain and suffering because of prescription drugs, we can assist you in determining if you are entitled to receive compensation for the harm caused to you, including lost wages, medical bills, and/or financial compensation to heirs in the case of a wrongful death.
