Common Injuries and Illnesses
Defective and recalled dangerous drugs have been identified as the primary cause or a contributing factor to the development of a number of serious injuries, illnesses, and diseases. Some of those include birth defects, life-threatening respiratory issues, heart attacks, and even death. Even worse is that many people who survive these injuries and illnesses are left with a substantially worse quality of life and may eventually require long-term medical care and assistance.
If you or a loved one has suffered serious and life-altering injuries after taking one of the above dangerous drugs, it is important to be aware of your legal rights and options. Innocent consumers who suffer injuries or illnesses after taking an FDA-approved drug – as well as their family members in some cases – have a legal right to receive compensation for the damages and losses they have suffered as a result of taking the medication.
Of course, no amount of money will ever undo the harm done by these dangerous drugs or bring back a loved one who has passed. However, the successful resolution of a personal injury or wrongful death claim holds drug companies accountable for their actions. Victims and their loved ones also often feel a significant sense of justice being served by pursuing a claim for damages.

Dangerous Drug Statistics
Drug manufacturers and the companies which market and sell pharmaceutical drugs are well-aware that the faster they can get a product to market, the more profit they stand to make in the end. In many cases, particularly with the many drugs listed above, pharmaceutical companies spend a great deal of time and money attempting to influence the FDA into fast-tracking drugs to the market before it can truly be determined if they are safe for consumers. In fact, the FDA has come under increased scrutiny from consumer advocates for approving a number of drugs and medical devices that ended up causing serious side effects, including life-changing injury or death.
The U.S. pharmaceutical industry is a $200+ billion market. Today, almost half of the U.S. adult population takes at least one prescription drug. Since the 1970s, there have been at least 35 individual drugs that were fast-tracked for the U.S. marketplace, only to be officially recalled by the FDA later on. Sometimes, it only takes a few months for the FDA to realize that a drug should be pulled from the market. Other times, it has taken the federal government nearly 50 years to issue a formal recall.
Many times, the injuries that people suffer after taking a dangerous drug are much more serious and life-altering than the medical condition the drug was supposed to alleviate or cure. Regardless, drug manufacturers have a legal duty to ensure that their products are safe for public consumption. When they fail to meet this duty, the law allows for injured victims to recover compensation for their injuries, pain and suffering, and more.
