We represent injured people with all types of accident claims

Tamarac Dangerous Drugs

We all rely on pharmaceutical companies and manufacturers of medication and pharmaceutical devices to provide us with safe, non-defective products. Pharmaceutical companies and drug manufacturers spend billions of dollars every year on marketing and promoting new medications and existing medications for a variety of conditions. Unfortunately, some of those medications have serious and even potentially fatal side effects.

If you have been negatively affected or have suffered a serious health condition after taking a medication, you will want to ask questions. For example, you will want to know whether the pharmaceutical company disclosed all of the risks of the medication so that you could make an informed decision. You will also want to know whether the pharmaceutical company or drug manufacturer took reasonable steps to ensure that you and other patients would not be injured by the product.

Injuries Caused By Unsafe Drugs In Tamarac And Other Communities

Unsafe drugs cause a lot more than simply discomfort or an unfortunate side effect. In some cases, the injuries that they cause can be tragic. Some common side effects caused by unsafe drugs include:

  • Heart failure or heart attack
  • Heart palpitations
  • Birth defects
  • Stroke
  • Blood clots
  • Memory loss
  • Seizures
  • High blood pressure
  • Insomnia
  • Paralysis
  • Blindness
  • Numbness in the extremities
  • Tremors

It can be terrifying to take a drug that you think will help you only to find that you are facing serious or life-threatening medical emergencies as a result of a defect in the medication. Your first priority in these situations is to get emergency medical assistance. Proper medical attention at once can help save your life and can help get you the treatment you need immediately.
