Common Dangerous & Defective Drugs
There are a number of dangerous and defective pharmaceutical drugs that are known to cause serious injuries and illnesses to patients who have received prescriptions for those drugs. These patients trust their primary care physician to prescribe safe medication, as well as the FDA and drug manufacturers to ensure that drugs on the U.S. market are safe for consumption by the general public.
Some of the drugs that are more commonly associated with causing serious injuries and illnesses to innocent patients include:
- Abilify (aripiprazole)
- Essure Birth Control
- Gadolinium Contrast Dye
- Power Morcellators
- Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs)
- Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT)
- Talcum Powder Products
- Xarelto Blood Thinner Medication
All of these products are supposed to be reviewed and approved for the marketplace by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), but that doesn't always prevent innocent patients from being injured or killed as a result. Sometimes, the FDA approves pharmaceutical drugs without a thorough analysis of the risks they present to medical patients.
At the very least, it is important for patients who have been harmed by a dangerous or defective pharmaceutical drug to understand their legal rights and how to go about pursuing a legal claim. Injured patients and their loved ones should consult with the award-winning personal injury attorneys at Davis Law Group to determine the best course of legal action moving forward.
