When the pharmaceuticals and medical devices designed to help us cause us harm, the situation is both frustrating and devastating. In a hurry to get their drugs approved and into the marketplace, large corporations may put profits ahead of consumer safety. A drug company may fail to perform the appropriate research or sufficient clinical trials and a drug’s dangerous side effects will go unnoticed; until consumers become injured. These injuries can range from digestive issues and mild allergic reactions to strokes and permanent heart defects.

If you have taken a medication or used a medical device and suffered an injury because of it, talk to a Rhode Island drug recall attorney about your rights. You deserve to be compensated for any expenses related to your injury, in addition to emotional compensation for the mental stress you consequently suffered.

Recalling Dangerous Drugs

Drug Recall AttorneysOccasionally, pharmaceutical companies will issue their own recalls if they discover dangerous side effects or negative long-term impacts that they were not able to test initially. Other times, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) who approved the drug will issue a public health advisory or require a product to add a “black box warning” to alert consumers about the potential dangers. When a drug or medical device has caused severe injury or death to many consumers, the FDA will recall the product.

However, in these cases, patients must suffer injuries before a warning or recall is issued. And if you are taking a dangerous medication and don’t know it, your health could be in jeopardy.
