Dangerous Pharmaceutical Drugs In The U.S.A

Dangerous drugs can cause serious health problems. If you have been injured by a dangerous drug, People for Law can help you file a lawsuit and get the compensation you need to pay for medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages.

Prescription and over-the-counter medications play an important role in the lives of Americans. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, 240 million Americans use over-the-counter or OTC drugs every year. The findings of Mayo Clinic and Olmsted Medical Center researchers further reinforce this point, as nearly 70% of Americans were found to be on at least one prescription drug.

Millions of Americans put their trust in prescription and OTC medications and look forward to relief from various ailments. However, when drug manufacturers fail to conduct adequate tests on the potentially harmful side effects or neglect to warn consumers about the potential dangers despite being aware of them, many lives are put at stake.         

Any drug intended for legal consumption in the U.S. is subjected to a thorough testing process by the FDA. Despite this, the harmful side effects of OTC or prescription drugs result in millions of injuries, illnesses, and wrongful deaths every year. Medications are considered dangerous when mislabeled, sold for improper uses, or cause dangerous side effects. The harmful effects of dangerous drugs can range from moderate to very severe or even fatal.
