In many instances, billion-dollar pharmaceutical companies place their drugs and medical products on the market despite the serious health risks involved to the consumer.
These companies often rush their products to market without adequate testing, or even worse, with the knowledge that serious debilitating injuries may occur to patients.
The innocent patient, unaware of the dangers and risks involved, may experience lifelong illnesses, severe permanent injuries, continual pain, organ damage, heart impairment, stroke or even death. When a pharmaceutical company places the public at risk like this, they must be held accountable for their negligent, dangerous conduct.
Recently there has been a sudden increase of litigation and significantly large class action lawsuits concerning defective pharmaceutical products and medical devices. Even with a huge amount of money being dispensed into the United States health care industry, an increasingly long approval process being enforced by the Food and Drug Administration, our population is constantly being confronted with defective medical products and dangerous drugs in our hospitals and pharmacies.
The following medical products have been prescribed to countless patients, often resulting in dangerous side-effects, injuries and even death. If you were harmed or injured by these medical products, you may be eligible for compensation for your injuries, medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of income and more:
Anti-Depressants causing birth defects (Celexa, Lexapro, Paxil, Zoloft, & Wellbutrin)
