A Dangerous Drug Attorney Who Means Business – Jeff Martin
Each year, drug manufacturers introduce hundreds of new drugs to the market. Pharmaceutical corporations use sophisticated marketing campaigns to tout the benefits of their drugs. You or a loved one may have used a prescription or over-the-counter medication hoping to see an improvement in your quality of life, but instead you are experiencing dangerous side effects. Dangerous drug attorneys who represent victims and families who lost loved ones know that corporations stand to make big profits and sometimes make misleading or false statements. At the Law Offices of Jeff Martin, we are well aware that these drugs can cause severe injuries or even death.
If you believe that you have been exposed to a dangerous drug, your first priority should be to seek proper medical attention. Keep all records of your medical visits and doctor reports. You may have grounds to file a lawsuit against a negligent pharmaceutical company and recover compensation for the injuries you have sustained as a result of a harmful drug.
Don’t Delay Seeking Justice in Your Dangers Drugs Case — The Statute of Limitations May Affect Your Legal Rights
If you or a loved one suffered a dangerous drug injury, get in touch with the Law Offices of Jeff Martin today. Do not delay seeking legal assistance. The statute of limitations restricts the amount of time you have to file a lawsuit. Your legal rights may be in jeopardy if you do not contact a qualified dangerous drugs attorney promptly. In most cases, you have two years from the time of the accident to initiate a legal action. It’s important to take action sooner than later while witnesses’ memories are fresh and evidence remains intact.
Potentially harmful drugs can range from antidepressants that are linked to birth defects to over-the-counter medications like acetaminophen which is linked to liver damage.
The following list includes medication that may be dangerous drugs:
Most dangerous drug cases relate to the manufacturer’s failure to provide adequate patient warnings of a drug’s risks, side effects and dosage, or the risk one drug may pose when combined with another.
Alarmingly, 51 percent of drugs approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have major detrimental effects that are not detected until after the general public uses them, according to the General Accounting Office.
