Dangerous drugs: Are you at risk? A Florida attorney can help
Each year, new drugs flood into the marketplace. The big pharmaceutical companies launch expensive marketing campaigns offering promises to improve lives. The prescription drug industry highlights the "benefits" of these drugs, but may make claims that are misleading and false. While prescription drugs can save lives, in some cases the medication can cause severe injury and even wrongful death.
Serious side effects or death may be the result of mixing one drug with another drug, or a pharmacist or doctor giving you the wrong medication. You have the right to be fully and duly informed of a drug's proper dosage, potential interactions with other drugs, side effects as well as other information.
A prescription drug injury, like an injury from a defective medical device, is a serious matter that demands the skill of an experienced attorney. If you or a loved one was injured, Gonzalez & Cartwright, P.A., can provide guidance and advice. The insurance companies and big corporations will have strong representation to defend their interests. You can level the playing field by retaining an aggressive and knowledgeable lawyer who has access to top experts and other resources to get you the results you need. Call (800) 608-2965 today for your free consultation.
Drug errors are not unusual
Millions of people suffer every year from dangerous drug side effects, which can lead to severe, long-term injuries. A drug may be dangerous because of negligence in the manufacturing process, or due to the manufacturer's failure to properly test the drug or disclose the side effects.
If you believe that you have been exposed to a harmful drug, your first priority should be to seek proper medical attention. Keep all records of your medical visits and doctor reports. Contact an experienced dangerous drug lawyer promptly. A delay may affect your rights.
Our attorneys believe the company that manufactured and marketed the drug should be held accountable. Because of the company's negligence, an individual may face steep medical bills and may be unable to work and collect a paycheck to support his or her family. Our firm can help those injured by dangerous drugs pursue the compensation they need and deserve.
