Dangerous Drugs

Personal Injury Attorneys

Prescription drugs have a one in five chance of causing a serious reaction even after they have been approved. Adverse drug reactions cause injuries or death in one out of five hospital patients, and approximately 128,000 people die each year from taking drugs that are prescribed to them. What this means is that prescription drugs are a major health risk, and rank fourth as a leading cause of death in the United States.

We Can Help

Many government whistleblowers and health care professionals have spoken out about dangerous pharmaceutical drugs. But meanwhile, use of other dangerous devices and drugs continues to cause serious injuries and even death. The fact that there are so many recalls and injuries only highlights the failure of the government and the pharmaceutical industry to ensure that consumers have access to safe and effective pharmaceutical products.

Active Cases

Medication should be helpful, not harmful. We think of medication as something that will cure us and not injure us. However, injuries from drugs can stem from inadequate or a lack of testing by the drug manufacturers, pharmacy error, or even physician error. If you are a victim of a dangerous or defective prescription drug, our experienced and knowledgeable attorneys are here to help you with your case.

Selecting an Attorney

Typically, cases involving dangerous drugs are considered personal injury or pharmaceutical injury claims, product failure claims, or even medical malpractice or negligence claims. Our team of California personal injury attorneys can advise you as to whether you have a personal injury claim and whether you are entitled to any compensation. If you do have a claim, we will fight diligently to make sure you receive the compensation you need and deserve for any pain and suffering you’ve had to endure.

California Dangerous Drug and Pharmaceutical Injury Attorneys

Prescription drugs have a one in five chance of causing a serious reaction even after they have been approved. Adverse drug reactions cause injuries or death in one out of five hospital patients, and approximately 128,000 people die each year from taking drugs that are prescribed to them. What this means is that prescription drugs are a major health risk, and rank fourth as a leading cause of death in the United States. In fact, every year, reactions to prescription drugs, and even over-the-counter medications result in death far more often than all illegal drug use combined.

Recently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the pharmaceutical industry has been under increasing scrutiny. Much of this is due to the fact that there have been major medical device and drug recalls nationwide. Many government whistleblowers and health care professionals have spoken out about defective products and dangerous pharmaceutical drugs. But meanwhile, use of other dangerous devices and drugs continues to cause serious injuries and even death. The fact that there are so many recalls and injuries only highlights the failure of the government and the pharmaceutical industry to ensure that consumers have access to safe and effective pharmaceutical products.

Not only do drug companies fail to test many of their drugs adequately, resulting in injuries, but harm can also come from a drug company’s misleading advertising. Many pharmaceutical companies end up spending significantly more on their advertising and marketing campaigns than they do on basic research and development of safe and effective drugs. They market many drugs and devices to consumers every year, trying to sell them with clever advertisements that promise a better and improved quality of life. However, some of these advertisements are completely false and misleading. Instead of providing an improved quality of life, the drugs that they are selling can be devastating to the health and wellbeing of consumers. When serious injuries result from drugs that were falsely advertised or marketed, drugs companies should be held accountable for the damage that they’ve caused.

Drug injuries and death can also be caused by health care workers. Doctors may over-prescribe or under prescribe prescription drugs, or even prescribe the wrong drug to a patient ultimately resulting in injury. In addition, pharmacists may distribute a different drug than was actually prescribed. Whether their actions are intentional or negligent, these professionals should still be held responsible for any injuries caused by those actions.

Can You Avoid Injury or Death from a Prescription Drug?

While there is no way to avoid an injury or adverse side effect from a prescription drug, you should at least be aware of the risks of any medication that is prescribed to you. Talk to your doctor about any medications they want to prescribe you, and do your own research on the risks and benefits of any prescription drug you have the option to take. Doing so will help you make a well-informed decision as to whether you are willing to take any risks in order to receive any possible benefits from the drug. Unfortunately, the only way to really avoid injury or death from prescription drugs is to stay away from them and not take them at all.
