The number of drugs approved for sale and usage in the U.S. in 2017 reached a 21-year high, with 46 new medications getting the green light from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Every year, dozens of new drugs are released to the consumer market. And while most of those drugs are safe due to rigorous testing, some aren’t. That’s because drug manufacturers don’t always test their drugs as thoroughly as they’re supposed to. And in some cases, drug companies are aware of potentially dangerous complications, but they don’t report them to make sure their drugs get FDA approval.
At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, we believe that multi-billion-dollar pharmaceutical companies should be held liable when their negligence or greed causes innocent victims like you to suffer serious drug-related side effects or injuries.
When you call our Norfolk drug injury lawyers, we’ll take the following steps to build a strong claim for you:
- We’ll prove the drug caused your health problems—Drug companies are skeptical of injury reports associated with their drugs—especially when the injuries aren’t consistent with publicized side effects. But other information, including FDA recalls/warnings and scientific studies, can establish a link between your health problems and the drug you took.
- We’ll prove the drug manufacturer was negligent—When a potentially dangerous drug gets released, there’s a good chance its manufacturer was negligent. Whether the drug company skipped steps in the testing process or obfuscated evidence that the drug you took could cause harm to patients, we’ll hold it accountable for its negligence.
