Texas Dangerous Drugs
Sales of prescription drugs have reached an all-time high in the past ten to twenty years as pharmaceutical companies have continued to develop new drugs for every conceivable illness. With the advent of legalized advertising on television and the internet in the 1990’s, pharmaceutical companies have inundated the media with ads extolling the virtues of their new drugs. However, what they have failed to properly tell the public are the vast side effects many of these drugs have that are causing serious, if not fatal injuries to the general public. Coupled with recent reports of falsified safety studies, our society has the perfect mix for a disaster for the consumer, who diligently followed their doctor’s recommendations for the best medication to treat their illness or condition.
It has now been discovered through numerous patients who have been injured or died, that many of these drugs are proving to be extremely dangerous, if not deadly. Combined with the withheld negative findings from certain studies regarding drugs such as Paxil and Zyprexa, the American consumer now has more information regarding certain prescription drugs they may have been taking that could be harmful to them.
The pharmaceutical industry (Big Pharma) has been putting their corporate profits – which is in the tens of billions of dollars every year – ahead of public safety. Our Dallas law firms are evaluating claims on behalf of individuals throughout the United States who were prescribed these drugs and have suffered serious side effects including blood clots, strokes, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, heart attacks, gallbladder removal, kidney failure, pancreatic cancer or death.
