Deaths and injuries caused by defective drugs simply should not happen. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is charged with ensuring that medications have undergone sufficient testing before they are released on the market. When drug manufacturers skew or alter test results - or bypass testing altogether - in order to rush a drug to market, the result may be that ordinary people become guinea pigs by default.
In some cases, our clients who became ill or lost loved ones in fatal drug-related incidents learn that the prescribing physician or pharmacist committed an error with an otherwise safe drug. Did the doctor neglect to screen for allergies or prescribe the wrong amount? Did the pharmacist misread the prescription and issue the person the wrong drug or dosage? Did a nurse in a hospital or nursing home issue the wrong patient's medication?
A detailed investigation can help get the answer that you seek most fervently: why. You may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and/or expenses that a family bears after the sudden death of a loved one.
