Philadelphia Defective Drug Lawyer
When you take medication, you trust that it’s safe. But sometimes, drugs and medications can have serious side effects. Even though drugs go through rigorous testing and must get approved by the Food and Drug Administration, some drugs can cause harm. Your doctor may even give you a prescription for a drug that is later deemed a dangerous drug. Some dangerous drugs may end up getting recalled or withdrawn from the market. If you suffered harm because of a defective drug, you need an experienced attorney on your side. A Philadelphia defective drug lawyer at Kane & Silverman will protect your rights if you’ve been injured by a dangerous drug.
Some dangerous drugs include:
- Ranitidine (Zantac, etc.)
- Risperdal and Risperidone
Side Effects of Defective or Dangerous Drugs
Dangerous or defective drugs can lead to harmful side effects. Side effects vary depending on the drug. Some common side effects include:
- Birth defects
- Blood clots
- Suicidal behavior
- Heart attacks
- Uncontrollable bleeding
- Heart failure
- Bladder cancer
Sadly, some side effects can be life-threatening and lead to disability or even death. Pharmaceutical companies and drug manufacturers have an obligation to warn the public about a drug’s potential side effects. If the drug company fails to adequately warn the public about a known side effect, it may be held liable for injuries caused by the drug.
