Dangerous Drugs

Over half of Americans take prescription drugs every day. It’s easy to assume these pills are safe, because they come from trusted medical providers. But even drugs prescribed from doctors and approved by the FDA can be risky – and even dangerous. Our Tacoma attorneys have helped many clients receive settlements who have suffered from dangerous drugs.

What makes a drug “dangerous?”

There are many ways bad drugs have hurt good people. In our work, we find that dangerous drugs usually fall into one of three categories:

Defective Drugs

There are many opportunities in the drug manufacturing process for errors to occur. For instance, a drug may become tainted before it’s bottled. A medical device may get assembled incorrectly. Or, a medicine gets mislabeled or shipped to a wrong address.

Dangerous Side Effects

Sometimes, a manufacturer fails to disclose known side effects, putting patients at risk. Other times, not enough testing has been done to determine a medicine’s side effects. It’s important that people are aware of potential risks so they can make informed decisions.

Improper Marketing

This is when adequate, clear instructions aren’t included with the medicine. Medicines need to have warnings listed and doctors should make sure patients understand the risks.

After speaking with our clients, sometimes we learn that the wrong drug was prescribed or that a dosing error has occurred. One of our experienced attorneys can help decide if it’s a case of a dangerous drug – or medical malpractice.

What are some of the symptoms of a bad drug?

Here are some of the most common dangerous drug injuries our clients have reported:

  • Stroke
  • Heart attack
  • Birth defects
  • Kidney failure
  • Cardiovascular problems
  • Death

What kind of compensation could I receive for my dangerous drug claim?

Often, our clients are surprised to learn that their expenses related to bad drug reactions are far reaching.

Here are some of the expenses we’ve recovered for our clients:

  • Medical costs
  • Lost wages
  • Therapy costs
  • Disability
  • Pain & suffering

We review each of our client’s cases to determine the full picture of their damages.
