Are Prescription Drugs Making You Sick?

Millions of prescriptions are written and filled every year, and pharmaceutical companies continuously research and develop new drugs. Most doctors and pharmacists do their jobs well, and pharmaceutical research is important to our continued health as a society. However, the wrong medication or the wrong dosage can seriously injure or kill.

Whether your doctor made the wrong diagnosis or prescribed the wrong drug or a dangerous drug or the pharmacist filled the prescription incorrectly, you may be able to recover compensation for your injuries.

How Pharmaceutical Companies May Be Negligent

Doctors should prescribe drugs only 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 a loved one. Pharmaceutical companies have placed many drugs on the market, only to recall them because of adverse side effects that injured and killed hundreds of people. Despite these dangerous effects, doctors continued to prescribe these drugs.

Physician, physician assistant and 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.
