Holding Pharmaceutical Companies Accountable in East Tennessee
Millions of Americans use prescription and over-the-counter drugs to deal with various ailments, diseases, and medical conditions. As our society becomes increasingly dependent on drugs and treatment provided by the pharmaceutical industry, discovery of the serious, sometimes deadly side effects from prescription drugs is increasingly common.
According to recent studies, adverse events associated with drugs are the single leading contributor to preventable patient injury, costing as many 100,000 American lives each year and accounting for more than 3 million hospital admissions. When improperly designed, manufactured or labeled drugs cause serious injuries or death, our Morristown personal injury attorneys of The Terry Law Firm are prepared to hold the pharmaceutical companies accountable and fight for the compensation you need.
Common Serious Side Effects
Pharmaceutical companies owe a moral and legal responsibility to the public to ensure that the medications they manufacture and sell are not unreasonably dangerous. They are also responsible for ensuring that the public is made aware of the risks associated with their products.
Unfortunately, some pharmaceutical companies introduce new drugs prematurely and without adequate warnings due to the competitive nature of the billion-dollar pharmaceutical industry. This premature rush to market has had detrimental consequences on the lives of countless consumers.
Many commonly prescribed drugs on the market today have serious side effects that can cause extreme harm including:
- Birth defects
- Heart attacks
- Heart palpitations
- Memory loss
- Stomach aches
- Blot clots
