Dangerous drugs can cause many serious complications and side effects, including:
- Blood clots
- Birth defects
- Dangerous changes in blood pressure
- Heart attacks or strokes
- Skin irritations
- Loss of consciousness
There are many types of drugs and pharmaceutical devices that have been shown to be dangerous and to produce side effects in some patients. These include:
- Some birth control pills
- Some medications intended to treat high blood pressure or cholesterol
- Hip replacement and joint replacement devices
- Some birth control devices
- Some antidepressants
Just about any type of drug can become dangerous if it is not adequately tested for safety and is not subject to strict trials. Even with adequate testing, drugs can be dangerous to the patient if full information about the drug’s side effects and possible interactions is not closed and if the information that comes with the drug isn't thorough and accurate.
If you have been injured due to a dangerous drug or pharmaceutical device, you may have a personal injury or medical malpractice claim in Miami Lakes or your community. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to tell whether you have a claim. If you have had a negative medical reaction, how can you be sure that the issue was caused by a problem with the medication rather than a problem with pharmacy error or medical malpractice? In many cases, it is difficult to tell and medical professionals are often not very forthcoming in admitting that they have made a mistake or have been negligent in some manner.
In fact, many pharmacies, doctors’ offices, hospitals as well as pharmaceutical companies are protected by powerful teams of attorneys and large insurance companies. These defendants will do everything they can to ensure that their liability is minimized or eliminated. If you have been injured, it is important to consult with a personal injury attorney in order to review your legal options and in order to ensure that your rights are protected.
