Helping Bay Area Residents Recover For Injuries Caused By Dangerous Prescription Drugs

Most people never expect that a drug prescribed to them could cause them serious illness, complications or even death — especially if it gets the Food and Drug Administration's stamp of approval.

But many prescription drugs, and even over-the-counter drugs, have been known to cause dangerous side effects, such as kidney failure, stomach ulcers, heart attacks and palpitations, birth defects and even death.

Common Drugs With Potentially Serious Side Effects

Many people are surprised to hear that common drugs they or a loved one has taken are dangerous such as:

Lopid

Atromid

Celexa

Lexapro

Luvoc

Pradaxa

Xarelto

Risperdal

Zofran

Vioxx

AndroGel

Testim

Who Is Liable For Injuries Caused By Dangerous Drugs?

Those injured could potentially have a cause of action against different individuals or entities.

The pharmaceutical company that manufactured the drug could be potentially liable. It could also possibly be the physician. Maybe he or she negligently prescribed the wrong dosage or failed to adequately check the drug's potential interactions with other medication the patient was taking. It could also be the pharmacists who sold the drug and failed to provide adequate warning labels or directed usage.

Determining the course of action to take in your situation will depend on your specific circumstances. Contacting an experienced attorney is the first step to determine your options under the law.
