Defective Drug Lawsuits in Fort Lauderdale
Many defective drugs, including both prescription and over the counter
medications, have been sold in the United States. The
Journal of the American Medical Association published a meta-analysis of adverse drug reactions in hospitals and revealed
that more than 100,000 adverse reactions to prescription drugs occur annually.
Dangerous side effects include:
- Heart Attack
- Physical Debilitation
- Psychological Effects
- Wrongful Death
Dangerous prescription drugs are one of the leading causes of death in
the United States. These statistics don't account for the innumerable Americans who suffer
adverse reactions outside of hospitals. At Kelley/Uustal, we believe that
victims of dangerous drugs and
medical malpractice deserve full and fair compensation for their suffering.
Dangerous Drugs Approved by the FDA
The FDA is designed to keep dangerous drugs and medications from reaching
consumers, but some prescriptions are approved by the FDA based on misleading
and self-serving studies conducted by pharmaceutical companies. Other
drugs may be safe if manufactured properly, but become contaminated during
the manufacturing process.
After causing considerable damage (and making profits for the drug companies),
some dangerous drugs are recalled. Even still, there are other dangerous
drugs that remain on the market and may never be recalled. These drugs
are still available to consumers, and pose a serious threat to the safety
and well-being of consumers.
