When you are prescribed a drug by your doctor to treat or prevent an ailment, you should be able to feel confident that your health care provider has your well-being as their best intention and that the drug will function as proposed. At the minimum, you want to be honestly assured that any potential difficulties or side effects associated with the drug have been acknowledged and your doctor confirmed it is safe to take. Regrettably, this isn’t always the case.
In many instances, pharmaceutical manufacturers have been found negligent in how they test and evaluate a new drug before it enters the marketplace. Many companies promote their drugs to doctors and patients, failing to ensure that they are safe for use and are useful in remedying the conditions for which they are advertised. Many common medications have been shown to cause severe side effects, yet they have been covered up by pharmaceutical companies that place profits before health.
When a dangerous medication causes sickness or even death, you need to hire a drug injury lawyer to represent you in order to recover losses and receive financial compensation. At Zwick Law, our attorneys are the authority in the complicated aspects of drug injury cases, and we are willing to stand up and fight for you.
