Whether your wife developed Type 2 diabetes after taking the statin drug Lipitor (atorvastatin); your son developed gynecomastia after being treated with the antipsychotic drug, Risperdal; or you suffered blood problems or a cardiac event after taking Enbrel or Avandia, you are probably wondering what legal recourse you have, if any, to compel the pharmaceutical company responsible for your medical issues to pay for damages. These can include compensation for your medical care, time off of work and pain and suffering.
The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) subjects medications to extensive testing and vetting procedures. However, drug companies still manage to release products that cause harm to certain cohorts in the population. What’s happening? Why can’t we regulate these drugs better, save more lives and stop needless suffering?
Part of the problem is that drug companies are caught up in a race to please shareholders by increasing the bottom line. A FDA approved drug can bring in literally billions of dollars a year in profits. The fierce competition between drug companies sparks innovation, but it creates a substantial downside. Scientific process is, by design, slow, bureaucratic and methodical. Scientific progress can sometimes be at odds with the drug companies’ push to bring more FDA approved products to market.
Unfortunately, in the clash between science and big business, science generally loses. As a result, thousands of patients on hundreds of drugs have suffered incredibly debilitating side effects. If you, or someone you love, suffered a drug related side effect, call us to speak to one of our attorneys.
