If you or a loved one has been injured due to serious side effects from taking a prescription drug, your case should be thoroughly evaluated to see if you can recover financial damages. It is important that you contact a qualified defective drug lawyer in Virginia for a case evaluation. Pharmaceutical companies manufacture and market hundreds of new drugs each year.
Each product is regulated and approved by the Food and Drug Administration before it reaches the consumer, and every year over 200,000 people die from using these drugs. It is estimated that more than 50 percent of all the drugs marketed to the American consumer have deleterious effects, in spite of testing and FDA regulation.
Of all the recent examples of harmful drugs, most were withdrawn from sale within 12 months of release. Some drugs were still marketed by drug companies even after evidence of serious side effects or death had been noted. By law, drug manufacturers are strictly liable for injuries if the product they sell is defective or unreasonably dangerous.
The Virginia dangerous drug lawyers will fight for your right to be compensated for your injuries and other losses. Call us today!
