When a doctor prescribes medication to help you manage your health problems, you trust it to be safe and effective. You certainly do not expect the medication to be more harmful than helpful. But it is important to remember that all prescription medications have side effects—and some of those side effects are not publicized or documented by the drug manufacturers.

Many people suffering from serious illnesses or injuries have been harmed by medications that were supposed to help them. Drug manufacturers often value profits over the safety of their customers, and that sometimes leads to harmful complications or side effects not being fully disclosed to the general public.

Before any medication ever reaches the market for sale, it must be approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). However, sometimes defective medicines find their way through the system and cause harm to hundreds of people. Other times, the issue lies in the hands of improper or unclear warning labels or instructions. Pharmacy error sometimes occurs too: medications were improperly handled, bottles were mislabeled, and so on.

When an individual has been injured or killed from taking prescription medication or over-the-counter drugs, a drug injury lawsuit or claim may be possible. The injury sustained can be a condition brought on by a serious reaction, side effect, or even death. To be eligible for a drug injury case, the injury sustained must have been a preventable injury had someone—such as a drug manufacturer, physician, or pharmacist—done something differently. 

If you or a loved one have been injured as a result of a defective drug or medication error, you are urged to contact Paradowski Law. We can help you navigate your case and get the compensation you deserve. Call (855) 524-2976 or send us an email at for a free, no-obligation case evaluation.
