When you are diagnosed with an illness, or having recently suffered from a serious injury, we are fortunate to live in a generation where medications to ease our symptoms are in abundance. However, unfortunate circumstances can occur, and the medicine that was engineered to heal you has harmed you instead. This is known as a “bad drug”, and is a serious issue that must be dealt with properly.
We describe a ‘bad drug’ as any medication that causes a personal injury, complications, or can also result in death. It is the responsibility of the manufacturers to inform their consumers about both the benefits and side effects from their drugs. This information needs to be clearly displayed on the packaging using clear and concise language. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible for overseeing all drug information pertaining to patient safety. However, the FDA decides if a drug is safe based upon if the benefits outweigh the risks. This can be inconsistent because there are different standards pertaining to what is considered ineffective and dangerous.
If you find yourself as the victim of a bad drug, your first step is to seek medical help immediately. Once you have been treated, you should contact an injury lawyer to evaluate your case, which could potentially lead to the process of filing a lawsuit in your defense. In this case, bad drug lawsuits fall under the category of injury lawsuits. It can be a long and grueling process, but it is important to see it through.
A drug taken under the correct circumstances needs to always be safe. The Spector Injury & Accident Lawyers does not tolerate any sort of negligence from drug manufacturing that doesn’t provide their patients with the proper information for the sake of their health and safety. Many of these drug manufacturers have lawyers that are trained to defend their client from any claims against them, even if the claims are justified. We at Spector Injury & Accident Lawyers will fight for you to get justice for this medical nightmare.
