Unsafe Medication Injuries

Philadelphia Personal Injury Lawyer

Medications are used by health care providers to effectively treat a wide variety of medical conditions and illnesses and to ultimately allow humans to live longer, healthier and happier lives. There is no doubt that these medications have accomplished amazing things, and that they will continue to be an inextricable part of therapeutic health care. While the benefits and contributions medications have made are immense, they have also been linked to numerous injuries, illnesses and deaths. In fact, unsafe prescription medications, over the counter drugs and dietary supplements are responsible for thousands of injuries and deaths each year in the United States. If you have been injured by one of these medications, get in touch with Philadelphia personal injury attorney, Thomas Murphy, who can aggressively fight for your right to recover damages.

The pharmaceutical industry is steeped in competition. As a result, many companies do whatever they can to push their products out onto the market, even if it means that they pose potential dangers to consumers. Recalls and class action lawsuits are a common consequence of this over-eagerness.

A few of the most infamous medications that injure consumers include:

  • Pradaxa
  • Yaz and Yasmin
  • Various birth control pills
  • Various ant depressant medications
  • Actos
  • Lexapro
  • Paxil

When these products cause injuries or illnesses, product liability law can be used to effectively hold large pharmaceutical companies liable for the damages their products caused. Victims who have suffered injuries or illnesses after taking unsafe medications have every right to pursue legal actions against pharmaceutical companies to recover their damages.
