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
  • Stroke
  • Physical Debilitation
  • Psychological Effects
  • Wrongful Death
  • Cancer

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.
