Dangerous Drugs

The Effects of Dangerous Drugs

In our modern society, drugs of all types are flooding the marketplace. Diet pills, anti-depressants and prescription medicines have their place. There are, unfortunately, more and more instances of dangerous or defective drugs being rushed to consumers which have brought about illness and other harmful side effects. In some cases, wrongful deaths are being caused by drugs which were not backed by proper research. Sometimes, the research is rushed or just poorly done and other times unethical actions are undertaken to quickly get a drug on the market to make a profit.

If a drug has caused you or a loved one illness or other harmful side effects, the Fort Lauderdale injury attorneys Weinstein & Scharf, P.A. want to help. We have over 70 years of combined experience in helping deserving individuals to receive just compensation for their personal injuries. In recent years, we are seeing more and more instances of drug companies and others being successfully sued for the effects of their dangerous drugs. Not long ago, the manufacturer of Paxil, an anti-depressant, was forced to settle a lawsuit brought against them in the amount of $750 million. Using a proven Fort Lauderdale personal injury lawyer from our firm will help you to understand the legal process and what can be done to seek a favorable outcome in your case.

Medical malpractice can also be a factor in cases involving dangerous drugs. If a doctor does not take the time to understand the interactions between drugs or your complete medical condition, a harmful drug interaction can occur leading to severe injury or illness. In our firm, we do the work needed to find out what caused your illness or injury and who is responsible. You may need financial help just to resolve the medical issues you now face. In addition, you may be awarded compensation for the pain and suffering you have endured.

A study by the Institute of Medicine revealed large deficiencies in the manner in which the FDA is bringing medicines onto the U.S. market. Winning your case can not only result in proper compensation on your behalf but can also help prevent others from being harmed as you have.

Our job is to help you when you are most in need and our assistance is just a phone call away.
