Prescription medications are designed to minimize symptoms of illness and help improve patients’ overall health and wellness. But, unfortunately for countless innocent victims, drugs that should have eased their pain actually caused them more pain and suffering, including serious injuries that lead to permanent disability, even death.
Dangerous drugs — even drugs that were approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) — can cause severe and sometimes fatal injuries. Swallowing a pill that your doctor prescribed can have severe and irreversible consequences. So, who is to blame when people get hurt by prescription drugs? Maybe the drug manufacturer rushed the formula through the approval process. Maybe documentation of the potential side effects was falsified. Perhaps the label did not properly warn consumers of the risks. Maybe the doctor prescribed the wrong dosage, or the pharmacist gave you the wrong medication.
