Louisiana Drug Recall Lawyers

Every pharmaceutical manufactured and marketed by drug companies must be approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), yet each year hundreds of thousands of people become injured and some even die from drugs that have been approved as safe for consumer use. No pharmaceutical should be allowed to harm consumers, especially if it has been deemed safe by the FDA—the governmental organization responsible for monitoring a drug’s safety.

If you or a loved one has been injured or suffered an adverse health consequence because of a dangerous medication or medical device, you deserve to be compensated by the negligent party. Consult the advice of a Louisiana drug recall attorney as soon as possible to discuss your situation and potential compensation.

How Dangerous Drugs Reach Consumers

Drug Recall AttorneysThe pharmaceutical industry is a massive enterprise that generates billions of dollars annually. On occasion, these companies are in such a hurry to get their medications prescribed in an effort to start making money that they cut corners. Sometimes they will fail to perform adequate research, or conduct conclusive tests to uncover the full range of side effects associated with their medication.

The results of these short-cuts can be devastating, as some medications will later be found to cause dangerous interactions with other drugs, or cause devastating side effects when used alone.

The FDA trusts the reports it receives from drug manufacturers, as it does not have the means to test each drug itself. Therefore, the organization may approve a drug that is later found to be dangerous. If a manufacturer knew about the potentially dangerous side effects, but downplays the severity to get their product into the marketplace, it should be held financially responsible. The impact can range from minor complications to a wrongful death.

Dangerous Drugs and Medical Devices

Some examples of dangerous drugs and medical devices include:

  • Fleet Phospho-soda
  • Levaquin
  • Heparin
  • Topamax
  • Ortho Evra
  • Yaz/Yasmin
  • Celebrex
  • Baycol
  • Accutane
  • Trans-vaginal mesh sling
  • Avandia/Actos
  • Ortho Evra Patch
  • Vioxx
  • Zyprexa
  • SSRIs (such as Paxil, Zoloft, Prozac and Lexapro)
  • Prempro

Sadly, many people suffer injury or death from dangerous drugs long before a formal recall has been initiated.
