With the continued uptrend in the use of pharmaceutical drugs for the treatment of most illnesses, concerns about food and drug safety are paramount for patients. Most consumers depend upon the expertise and professional judgment from the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) and the data provided to the FDA by big pharmaceutical companies.

Although it is impossible to guarantee absolute safety when it comes to the side effects of pharmaceutical drugs or devices, big pharmaceutical companies aren’t always looking for your best interests. Often, the makers of these products were aware or should have been aware of the hazards and severe health risks posed by their drugs. In some cases, the drug or device maker may have known about certain adverse side effects but failed to disclose the risk to medical professionals or the public. In other instances, a manufacturer may have prepared the drugs using methods that introduced dangerous impurities and byproducts into the final product. While some of these unsafe and dangerous drugs continue to be marketed to unsuspecting patients, these people and their families are encountering significant injuries and expenses, both financially and emotionally, as a result.
