Some drugs on the market are effective and help people live better lives, but there are also medications that are putting people’s lives at risk. Many FDA-approved drugs cause life-threatening side effects for some users. Consumers use these drugs hoping to improve their lives and, instead wind up sick or injured.
Prescription drug manufacturers that sell their products to consumers are responsible when their drugs cause harm. Legally, they are responsible for the safety of their products. If you or a loved one has suffered because of negative side effects from a prescription drug, you have a right to take legal action.
