Sean M. Cleary
Adverse drug effects (ADE) are a serious public health problem. Often, drugs are not adequately tested, or their side effects are not reported, even if the drug producers usually know about the medication's potential to hurt. Pharmaceutical companies are required to test their products thoroughly for safety before obtaining the FDA approval, but even so, many pharmaceuticals end up being recalled and labeled as extremely dangerous.
The pharmaceutical industry is, each year, responsible for the development and production of medication that we all use to improve our health. Manufacturers bear the liability to make drugs and medical equipment safe and perform appropriate tests before sending them for approval to the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).
However, sometimes some of these drugs are rushed to the market and promoted even though they have not been adequately tested or with some of their dangerous side effects made unavailable to the public.
When you receive a prescription for a drug from your doctor, you might believe it is safe as it is the doctors' and pharmacists' responsibility to advise patients regarding the side effects and accurate dosage of proper medication. Unfortunately, due to incomplete labeling or unexpected adverse side effects, serious injuries can occur with severe physical and emotional distress.
If you or somebody close to you has been the victim of a defective drug, it is recommendable to get in touch with a lawyer as quickly as possible as you might be entitled to receive compensation.
At The Law Offices of Sean M. Cleary, we can help you determine if your request for damages is eligible. As a skilled defective drugs attorney, Mr. Cleary will provide you the necessary legal consultancy so that you can prepare a solid case for court. We gather information related to the person's medical history, medical records, the usage of the particular drug responsible for the injury, the reason for the medical prescription, the pharmacy record and any other evidence, which can prove that you have been a victim. We have access to information from the federal government or the FDA, and we can investigate the history of the drug or any adverse reports. Call us today at (305) 416-9805.
