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
If any of these situations apply to you, and you have been injured by the
behavior of a negligent medical provider, don’t hesitate –

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
If you have taken any of the above medications, or any drug
recalled by the FDA, and experienced injuries as a result, you may be able to file a lawsuit.
