In most instances, a defective drug is a pharmaceutical product that generally has risks associated with its use that far outweigh any potential health benefits that it offers to consumers.
While the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does regulate the industry, many drugs are released into the open market that have not been tested for a long enough period of time to discover any potential long term effects of using the product.
If you or someone you love suffered a serious personal injury due to the use of a defective drug, that individual may have grounds to file a lawsuit for compensation, which can include provision for medical expenses, lost wages, lost opportunity, pain and suffering and other conditions that are related to the injury.

Known Dangerous Drugs
Despite the FDA giving final approval for a pharmaceutical product to be released into the marketplace – and also for monitoring that product once it is released – the manufacturers are ultimately responsible for any injuries, deaths or complaints that arise from using their medication.
Some of the following products may be dangerous to individuals that use them:
|Drug Name||Drug Manufacturer|
|Cordarone||Wyeth Pharms Inc|
|Finasteride||Merck & Co|
|Fosamax||Merck & Co|
|Hydroxycut||Iovate Health Services|
|NuvaRing||Merck & Co|
|Pradaxa||Boehringer Ingleheim Pharmaceuticals|
|Vioxx||Merck & Co|
|Yasmin||Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals|
|Yaz||Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals|
Unfortunately, due to the enormous profits that can be made in this industry, many drug manufacturers have been known to cover up research results and other known issues with their products in order to get them approved for sale.
In most instances, part of these profits are used to employ teams of attorneys that arew paid to fight and defend these products, which they do by trying to intimidate innocent people that have fallen ill due to using a given product.
The legal professionals of Arguello, Hope and Associates understand the tricks and tactics that these lawyers often use, and are not afraid to fight against these law firms to stand up for the rights of our clients.
Common Reactions to Dangerous Pharmaceuticals
There can be many different reactions that individuals have to a dangerous or defective product, although there are some more common symptoms that many people succumb to.
Some of these include:
- Severe nausea
- Skin rashes and irritation
- Psychological changes
- Serious respiratory problems
- Liver damage
- Cardiac arrest
- Shortness of breath
- Suicidal thoughts and behavior
…. Amongst many others.
If you or someone you love has exhibited these types of symptoms after taking a prescription drug, it’s very important that they consult their local physician and advise them of these complications.
After these medical issues have been addressed, contact the attorneys at our firm today – you may have grounds to file a compensation claim against the drug manufacturer.
