What are Dangerous Drugs
Any drug that has been released to the public can later be found to be problematic. Some of the dangerous drugs that have been subject to recent recalls or warnings include Zantac, Pradaxa, Nexium, Talcum powder Prilosec, Xarelto, Actos, Risperdal, and Januvia. At Atlee Hall, we have been involved in litigation over many dangerous drugs over the last several decades. Always remember that any drug that you’ve taken can result in harm to you.
If you took a medication and had severe side effects that required additional medical treatment, you should seek help from an attorney. Some dangerous drugs don’t show harm until long after you started taking them. If you have taken any medication for an extended period and then developed cancer, bleeding, heart failure, hair loss, or another condition, call Atlee Hall.
Dangerous Drug Liability
There may be multiple parties responsible for putting a dangerous drug on the market. Both prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications are supposed to go through an intense approval process through the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Although some make it through the approval process, they may still end up causing problems for consumers.
Negligent Drug Manufacturers
The pharmaceutical companies that research and manufacture drugs are primarily responsible for determining if they are safe for humans. Whether it’s for long-term or short-term use, drugs should be thoroughly researched and studied before they are released.
Drug manufacturers have teams of attorneys and often reject claims outright. They will try to bury you in paperwork and draw out the lawsuit process.
