Attorney Handling Defective Drugs in Houston
Criminal Attorney Houston
There are hundreds of new drugs on the market every year, treating anything from hair loss to impotence. While many of them have been beneficial in helping with diseases and symptoms, others have been extremely dangerous and have resulted in severe side effects and even fatalities. When a drug company puts a product on the market that they say is safe for consumer use but results in injuries and illnesses, they may be held liable for their negligence. Many drug company studies fail to reveal the actual degree and type of severe side effects that can occur when taking their medication. In fact, many of these studies have been found to have been falsified or negative effects hidden from the public. Drugs such as Zyprexa and Yaz have actually caused numerous deaths and left many with serious illnesses as a result of taking them as prescribed.
Some of the serious effects of current popular drugs can include heart attacks, liver damage, kidney failure, high blood pressure, diabetes, and a host of others. Some new drugs cause other serious conditions that the person didn’t suffer from before taking the drug for whatever condition they are currently being treated for.
When the pharmaceutical industry puts their profits over public safety, it is time to take a stand. If you or someone you know has been injured or sickened by taking a prescription drug, contact the personal injury attorneys from the Malaise Law Firm, who can evaluate your situation and advise you as to what your legal options are.
