Dangerous Drug Claims
A physician prescribes a medication for relief of symptoms or to control a condition so the patient expects to get that exact result. To suffer injury instead can be a traumatic experience. If the patient survived this he or she may have required intensive medical care. Or worse, the patient may have suffered a permanent injury. On top of this there may be large medical bills which must be paid. If this has happened to you or a loved one, it is vital that you talk to a Lafayette personal injury attorney who has great familiarity with the bad effects caused by prescription and over-the-counter drugs.
Dangerous Drug Lawyer in Lafayette
A look at our recent history shows that pharmaceutical companies are prone to putting drugs on the market without fully informing the medical doctors or the patients of the dangers in order to reap large profits. Although the FDA has guidelines concerning the tests which these companies must conduct before a drug can be made available to the public, too many of these pharmaceutical products, including psychiatric drugs have proven to have dangerous to fatal effects on the consumer. This is especially tragic when the unsuspecting patient is a child. The cost to the patients and their families in medical expense, pain and suffering, and loss of a future is enormous.
