St. Louis Dangerous Drug Attorney
Pharmaceutical Companies and Defective Drugs
The public has been bombarded by commercials which show drugs will elevate your mood, put you to sleep at night, relieve your pain, grow hair, relieve allergy symptoms, get rid of fat and a multitude of other complaints. All of this might cause a person to believe that if you have any problem, there is a drug to answer it.
Too many of these chemical solutions, however, turn out to have deadly side effects causing such horrors as respiratory failure, convulsions, liver or kidney damage, diabetes, heart damage or strokes. If you have been harmed by a dangerous medication, turn to a St. Louis personal injury attorney for help.
Dangerous Drug Lawyer in St. Louis
Giant pharmaceutical companies produce capsules and tablets which they advertise broadly supposedly after numerous clinical trials to ensure these remedies do produce the stated result and have been proven to be relatively safe. The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has numerous regulations as to what testing is to be done and how, before a drug can be put on the open market. In the rush to start realizing income, too often the required trials have been quickly pushed through with inadequate data collected as to the possible side effects.
By the time a drug is determined to be too dangerous to the consumer and recalled, many people's lives have been ruined and the drug company has collected huge profits. By law, individuals and other entities must take reasonable care not to endanger the well-being of another and to make clearly known any hazards to the use of a product.
