Harmful Effects of Pharmaceuticals

Categories: Medical Lawsuits

If you sit in front of your television for any time at all, you’ll find yourself bombarded by ads for prescription medicines to treat all sorts of ailments. While many prescription drugs alleviate pain and help people live better quality lives, there are times when adverse reactions to prescription medications occur.

Today it is not uncommon for drugs that were rushed to market to later be recalled by their manufacturers. In recent years, thousands of lawsuits have been brought against major pharmaceutical makers. Problems related to the drug Paxil recently resulted in a settlement by the manufacture to victims of $750 million.

If you or someone you love has been harmed by a pharmaceutical they were prescribed for treatment, don’t sit idly by. Drug companies can be held accountable for any adverse health effects you experience, as well as for your additional pain, suffering, or loss of income.
