When a pharmaceutical company’s products create serious health problems for patients, the drugs may be recalled by the manufacturer or at the FDA’s request. However, if a person is injured before the drug is recalled, he or she may be able to take legal action against the drug manufacturer. These lawsuits can help a person recover from the heavy financial toll of medical treatment and other injury-related expenses.
If you have suffered because of a recalled drug’s dangerous effects, you may be entitled to pursue compensation for those injuries.

The Consequences of Unsafe Drugs
Pharmaceutical companies have a responsibility to properly test their medications before they’re released to consumers. If a drug manufacturer fails to do so, individuals who use the unsafe medications can be left with dangerous and potentially deadly health complications.
- The following problems can occur because of dangerous drugs:
- Life-threatening side effects, such as kidney or liver failure
- Gastrointestinal disorders
- Birth defects in future children
- Brain damage
If these side effects are lethal or cause permanent disability, the FDA may recommend a recall or further warning labels for patients.
