Do You Need a Lexington Drug Injury Lawyer?

When a medication reaches the market after years of testing, clinical trials, and Food and Drug Administration approval, you would assume that the drug is safe when used as directed. Unfortunately, this is not always correct. Many drugs that have received FDA approval still cause injury and death to people who are taking the medication as directed. In many cases you may need a drug recall lawyer to help you file a claim even if the drug has not yet been recalled.

Usually, within twelve months of introduction to the marketplace, defective drugs will reveal harmful effects that had not been identified prior to FDA approval. Clinical trials are meant to identify any issues in a drug’s safety. But clinical trials only test the effects of a drug on a small group of subjects, and the tests are run for a short period of time. When the drug reaches the market and is prescribed to hundreds of thousands of consumers, unknown complications or drug interactions may appear. That is why a drug recall lawyer can be important to consumers, and especially important if you or a loved one have been injured by a dangerous drug.

These prescription medications have been linked to unintended side effects, and in some cases, serious and fatal injuries. Some dangerous drugs are relatively new to the market, while others have been the subject of drug recalls and lawsuits. Some of the injuries caused by the drugs include heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, high blood pressure, nerve damage, internal organ damage such as liver damage, kidney damage, or brain damage, birth defects in infants, depression, and suicidal ideations. The parties who can be held liable for these dangerous drugs include:
