Myrtle Beach Dangerous Drugs Attorney
People visit pharmacies each day to fill prescriptions given to them by their medical providers. Many of these patients will take their medication without experiencing side effects. Unfortunately, others will discover that their pills lead to serious complications which compromise their health. Auger & Auger Accident and Injury Lawyers assists these victims by filing claims against the manufacturers of the drugs.
You believe that the FDA closely scrutinizes prescription medications before they are released to the public. As our Myrtle Beach dangerous drugs attorney can explain, established protocols are not always adhered to and some medications slip through the cracks. Our team is here to seek the compensation you deserve when you or a loved one have been harmed by a prescription that was supposed to heal.
Complications Caused by Prescription Medications
When you purchase your medication, you are given a pamphlet that lists known potential side effects. Some side effects may include nausea, headache, and diarrhea, and there are certain medications that may negatively impact your ability to operate a vehicle. Most of these side effects are an acceptable risk.
However, there are prescription medications on the market that do not just cause minor side effects. Patients have experienced serious reactions like confusion, difficulty breathing, and abdominal pain. Before taking any medication, you should read patient alerts released by the FDA.
Abnormal Side Effects Linked to Specific Drugs
Auger & Auger dangerous drugs attorneys have handled cases for patients harmed by the following medications: Risperdal®, Invokana®, Taxotere®, Jardiance®, Xarelto®, Risperdal®, Eliquis®, Xigduo® XR, Farxiga®, Testosterone®, and Invokamet®. These drugs have been known to contribute to abnormal and serious side effects in some patients.
You may be disturbed to find out that FDA loopholes allow dangerous drugs to be released. It is startling to know that 100% of drugs prescribed to the public do not receive the same comprehensive testing. In fact, if a drug is substantially similar to one that is already approved and in use, it will frequently be released for doctors to prescribe. We do not believe that your health should be placed at risk simply because a drug was “similar” to one that has yet to be recalled.
The Basis for Dangerous Drugs Claims
Experiencing a known side effect is not enough to file a claim. Our Auger & Auger Myrtle Beach accident and injury lawyers can file a claim on your behalf based upon:
- Manufacturer or design negligence
- A failure to warn doctors or the public of side effects
- Strict liability
If you are reading this because you are experiencing the side effects of medication and are looking for information, we urge you to seek immediate medical attention. Side effects like a rapid heartbeat, dizziness, numbness, confusion, or anything life-threatening needs to be checked out immediately — do not wait!
