Hurt by Defective Drugs?
Atlantic City Drug Recall Attorneys Can Help
Some personal injuries are caused by external events like auto accidents, but what happens when the damage is done from within? Though pharmaceutical drugs often make us feel better, they can be extremely dangerous when defective or prescribed improperly. It is even worse when the defects are known but the pharmaceutical company continues to negligently manufacture and sell the defective product because the profits made selling the drug potentially outweighing the costs of consumer injury lawsuits.
If you or a loved one has suffered because of defective drugs, the Atlantic City drug recall attorneys at Targan & Pender P.C. can help you pursue damages from the manufacturer responsible for your devastating drug injuries. Our firm has a record of success with defective and improperly prescribed drug lawsuits. In one recent case, we were able to secure a $3.5 million jury verdict for a mother prescribed drugs during her pregnancy that were known to cause birth defects. If you are struggling with hospital bills, treatment expenses and damages as a result of injuries you received from taking a bad drug, you may be able to seek compensation from the manufacturer of the defective drug for these and other costs you suffered.
What Are the Possible Harmful Effects of Defective Drugs?
The power of modern medications cannot be underestimated. While they have tremendous healing capabilities, they can also cause immense harm. If you have suffered an injury from a defective drug, first and foremost, you should seek medical attention immediately.
Defective drugs can cause incredibly serious medical conditions, many of which require extensive and ongoing medical treatment. These dangerous drugs have also been known to complicate the conditions that they were intended to treat as well as cause:
- Heart failure
- Lung disease
- Severe pain
- Autoimmune failure
- Birth defects
- Bone loss
- Liver failure
What Should I Do if I Suspect I Have a Defective Drug Injury?
If you begin suffering serious side effects after beginning a medication, it is important that you write down your symptoms, feelings and experiences. As you may feel different from day to day, keeping this record (sometimes called a “medical journal”) will help establish the drug’s serious effects on your health.
You should also contact an Atlantic City drug recall attorney to discuss your situation. The pharmaceutical company that caused your injuries will have its own team of high-powered attorneys that will stop at nothing to discredit your claim, which is why having qualified and experienced legal counsel on your side is essential.
