Everyone knows that prescription drugs can cause adverse health effects in the form of side effects. Virtually all drugs have side effects, with some being more severe than others. But drug manufacturers are required to publicize known side effects for their medications, and both doctors and pharmacists are supposed to be knowledgeable about them for patients to make informed decisions about their own care.
However, drugs can also cause serious harm to patients in ways that aren’t publicized or known by healthcare professionals. In some cases, it's revealed that the drug companies were aware of the risks but covered them up to increase their profits and the chances of their drugs being approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
If you or someone you love suffered a drug injury, it’s important that you get a Texas drug injury lawyer on your side for two reasons:
- We can prove your health problems were caused by the drug—The first step in filing a claim for a drug injury is to link any health issues to the drug itself. We’ll collect medical records and evidence related to the drug’s safety records, including FDA recalls, to prove that you were harmed by the medication.
- We can fight to get you fair compensation—Drug companies and their insurers are reluctant to pay out the money that victims deserve after they’ve been hurt by their medications. We’ll fight to get you a settlement that takes care of your family.
Don't take on your injury claim alone—consider hiring experienced legal help. At Daniel Stark Injury Lawyers, we're here 24/7 to provide a free consultation if you need us.
