Gainesville Defective Drug Attorneys
Negligent Pharmaceutical Companies Must Be Held Accountable
Did you know the FDA has streamlined the process for the release of new drugs? If not, you may be among the many thousands of patients who have taken prescription drugs and suffered from serious side effects. When used as recommended or prescribed, consumers should be able to trust that the medications they are taking are safe to use. Major pharmaceutical companies have enormous resources and make billions of dollars in profit, but sometimes, these corporate giants do not fully research the potential dangers of their products. Unfortunately for some, defective drugs can cause serious injury to patients who took them exactly as prescribed by their physician.
At Schackow & Mercadante, our attorneys can provide guidance for those seeking restitution for injuries caused by dangerous drugs such as:
- Zocor (Simvastatin)
- Yaz, Yasmin, Ocella, and Gianvi
- Prozac, Paxil, and Zoloft
Numerous prescription drugs have been removed from pharmacy shelves after repeated cases of dangerous side effects have been documented. Medications like those listed above can have an adverse effect on the heart, muscles, bones, brain, kidneys, lungs, and liver. Some cause permanent damage, birth defects, disturbed mental faculties, suicidal tendencies, or a lifetime of pain. If you lost a loved one or suffered severe injuries due to a dangerous drug, defending your rights is going to be an uphill battle.
