Dealing With The Dangers Of Defective Pharmaceutical Drugs
If you are suffering from a medical condition, your physician may prescribe medication to help you deal with your condition. These drugs usually have been subjected to substantial testing and research before being approved for use, but unfortunately, this is not always the case.
Sometimes the approval process is rushed and a drug is approved before there has been enough research and testing to determine its dangerous side effects. There have even been situations where drug companies have withheld important information about the drug’s side effects. When these things happen a drug with dangerous or unknown side effects may become available for use. If you have taken one of these drugs and have suffered serious side effects you may have a claim for compensation.
