Pharmaceutical Companies and Drug Negligence
Doctors should only prescribe drugs if they have a medically sound reason
for doing so. Unfortunately, doctors can sometimes fall into the pockets
of pharmaceutical companies, and the bottom line becomes money. Pharmaceuticals
are a billion-dollar industry, and a doctor could easily care more about
his or her relationship with a pharmaceutical company than your well-being.
This conflict of interest can harm you or your loved one. Pharmaceutical
companies have placed many drugs on the market, only to recall them because
of adverse side effects that have injured and killed hundreds of people;
despite these dangerous effects, doctors continued to prescribe these drugs.
Physician, physician assistant or pharmacy mistakes can cause injuries
that last a lifetime. Brain injuries from an accidental prescription drug
overdose may be permanent, and other chronic medical conditions can manifest
from improper prescription drug use. The resulting medical expenses can
spell financial disaster for many families.
