Recent Drug Recalls

 In our country, we look to medical professionals and our doctors for the medical answers that we need to our problems and illnesses. We trust our doctors to prescribe the right medication for our symptoms and for that medicine to help us get better, but unfortunately this is not always the case. There are an endless variety of pharmaceutical drugs on the market today, some of which can have severe health risks and, in some cases, can cause the wrongful death of a person.

Before a medication can be placed in the hands of physicians and on the market shelves, it must be thoroughly tested and approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This has not proven to be a failsafe way of ensuring that a drug will be safe, however, and drug recalls are common by both the FDA and the manufactures of the drugs themselves. Many people do not know that the FDA recalls potentially harmful drugs about once every month, but doctors and the public in general are not always notified of these recalls.

While many drugs are helpful to those in need and produce the results that are expected, drugs that aren’t safe can have devastating and long term effects. With the pressure to make as much profit as possible, some manufactures falsely claim that their drugs are safe in an effort to get them released as quickly as possible. This can result in life-threatening injuries to consumers and can worsen the health of a person for extended periods of time. This type of product liability case needs to be addressed by a knowledgeable Fort Lauderdale injury attorney due to the complexity of the laws themselves, and should never be handled alone. Trying to file a lawsuit against a powerful medical corporation without the help of an experienced lawyer will not only be stressful, but it will be exceedingly difficult to recover the fair amount of compensation that you deserve.

Types of Dangerous Medications

Hundreds upon hundreds of pharmaceuticals have been recalled over the years, and our firm has helped many injury victims and their families with the legal process involving with filing a claim. Many people suffer serious conditions, illnesses, cancers, and other injuries from the use of harmful drugs and dangerous medications, and we are here to stand up for your rights if you have been injured.

Some of the most dangerous medications to result in injury include the following:

  • Accutane
  • Actos
  • Byetta
  • Januvia
  • Propecia
  • Pradaxa
  • Chantix
  • Yasmin
  • Yaz
  • Zoloft

Some of the drugs that are manufactured and sold to the public are accompanied with warnings that state their potential harmful side effects, and these drugs are generally exempt from product liability lawsuits. If, however, you have evidence proving that there are other factors involved in your injury, you may be able to be successful in recovering compensation. A medication can only be categorized as an unavoidably unsafe product if it is properly marketed as such, and if the medication’s instructions and warning labels do not fully detail the potential hazards associated with the drug, you may have a case for compensation.

Additionally, every drug is susceptible to manufacturing or preparation mistakes, and you may be able to make a pharmaceutical liability case if you have enough evidence to prove this is true. Before you assume that the medication that caused you injury falls into the category of unavoidably unsafe products, you should first speak to a Fort Lauderdale injury lawyer at Weinstein & Scharf, P.A.
