Fort Lauderdale Dangerous Drugs
Pharmaceutical companies and drug manufacturers are extremely profitable companies, generating billions of dollars in revenues and offering executive officers millions of dollars in benefits and bonuses. With this amount of money, one would reasonably expect that these companies do everything possible to ensure that the patients that they claim to provide products for are protected. One would expect that these companies provide adequate testing, careful trials, and plenty of information on all of their products. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Some drug companies allow the desire for profitability to overshadow everything else and as a result dangerous drugs and pharmaceutical devices are released to the public, causing serious injuries and even fatalities.

Drug injuries are a type of product liability case in many Florida communities. These cases and legal claims may result from injuries that occur as a result of:
- Side effects
- Contaminated medication

- Unexpected drug interactions
- Inadequate instructions or warnings on the medication label
- Complications from the medication
When you take a prescription medication, there are many things that can go wrong. Some of these things no one can predict. For example, some patients have severe, even life-threatening allergic reactions to some medication.

This, too, can be life-threatening and can result in serious complications and side effects.
However, in other cases you are given the right medication, prescribed the right medication, and get the right dosage. Nevertheless, due to negligence or recklessness on the part of the drug manufacturer, you may still suffer serious side effects, complications, or even life-threatening injury.
