Harmed Instead of Helped by Your Prescription? We Can Help!

Every time a medical professional prescribes a medication, they are required by law to consider the pros and cons of the medication they are recommending to you. If the negative side effects outweigh the benefits of the drug, or if the drug has the potential to harm you, the prescription should not be made.

Unfortunately, doctors don’t always understand, or consider, the risks associated with every medication they prescribe, especially when drug manufacturers intentionally undersell or cover up those risks.

If you or someone you love suffered from the adverse side effects of a prescription medication, our dangerous drug attorneys can help. At Richard Schwartz & Associates Injury Lawyers, P.A., we hold providers and manufacturers responsible for the harmful effects of dangerous drugs.

Holding Medical Professionals Accountable

If a doctor, nurse, pharmacist, or other healthcare provider exposes you to a dangerous drug, they can be held liable for medical malpractice. Prescription drug errors occur when a provider:

  • Administers the wrong drug or dosage
  • Mislabels medication
  • Prescribes you a medication you are allergic to
  • Prescribes you a medication that interacts negatively with your other prescriptions
  • Fails to warn you about the side effects of a medication

Holding Manufacturers Responsible

Before they release a new drug to the public, manufacturers must research “adverse events” and get approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Once their product is on the market, they must continue monitoring and reporting any problems associated with the drug. Unfortunately, some manufacturers use FDA loopholes or deceptive marketing tactics to hide the adverse side effects of their drugs in order to keep them on the market and profitable.

For example, opioid manufacturer, Johnson & Johnson, falsely claimed that the risk of addiction to opioid painkillers was “2.6% or less” if the drugs were prescribed by a doctor.

In addition to opioid painkillers like OxyContin and Duragesic, dangerous drugs include:

  • Abilify
  • Nexium
  • Onglyza
  • Risperdal
  • Xarelto
  • Yaz
  • Accutane
  • Zoloft
