It is a sad truth that a number of prescription drugs on the market today have been linked to dangerous and even deadly side effects. Some of these drugs have been recalled by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), but many have only been given a “black box warning” that includes the potentially dangerous side effects on the drug’s label.

Drug Recall AttorneysThe reason why a dangerous drug makes it on to the shelves of pharmacies and drug stores varies. Sometimes the drug’s manufacturer failed to perform the appropriate research or trials before introducing the medication into the marketplace. Other times, the drug company was aware of the side effect but chose to ignore it in an effort to start making money. These are the most devastating cases, because the company was not just acting negligently, it was deliberately putting consumers in harm’s way. Occasionally the FDA, which is responsible for properly screening drugs prior to approving them for public consumption, fails to rigorously screen a drug and it slips into the marketplace.

If you or someone you love has suffered because of a dangerous pharmaceutical or over-the-counter medication, you deserve to be compensated. A California drug recall attorney can answer your questions and advise you on how to proceed with your product liability claim.
