DC Dangerous Drugs Attorney
Before being made available to consumers, prescription and nonprescription medications should be thoroughly tested and users should be given adequate warning about potential side effects and health risks. Leading pharmaceutical companies and drug manufacturers spend years researching and testing new drugs and medications. Despite the years of research, clinical studies, and clinical trials, may new drugs are pushed into the market before the risks are fully known. When a drug or medication does more harm than good, and the health risks associated with using a drug outweigh its potential benefits, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) may deem them to be dangerous and subject to close monitoring. In some cases, the FDA, the agency providing governmental oversight in the development and marketing of these drugs, determines that the drug is defective and issues a mandatory recall. For patients who have been adversely affected by taking these risky medications, a DC dangerous drugs lawyer can help you bring a lawsuit against negligent or careless pharmaceutical companies.
When the medications intended help you instead cause you harm, a Washington DC dangerous drugs attorney can help you get the compensation you need for medical treatment and pain and suffering. If you have suffered a harmful medical condition caused by your medication, you may be entitled to seek compensation through pharmaceutical litigation.
