Pharmaceutical companies have an obligation to make sure that the drugs they manufacture and sell are reasonably safe to consumers and contain proper warnings about any potential risks and hazardous side effects. While the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) vigorously tests all drugs before approving them for use, it is often difficult to determine all of the long-term risks and complications associated with a new drug. For this reason, it is even more important for pharmaceutical companies to act responsibly when marketing their drugs to physicians and consumers.
Unfortunately, many drug manufacturers place profits above consumer safety. These companies invest millions of dollars in research and development, and they stand to lose billions of dollars if these drugs do not receive approval. Sadly, this profit-driven motivation often compels pharmaceutical companies to act negligently and conceal the known risks of their drugs from the general public. Simply put, this is unacceptable.
Pharmaceutical injuries can be life altering, and in many cases life threatening. If you have been injured after taking a dangerous or defective drug, you have rights.
