Dallas Drug Injury Lawyer
Medicine has come a long way from the early 20th century and the experiments of Alexander Fleming and Paul Ehrlich. The development of antibiotics such as penicillin ushered in a new wave of medicine which provided vaccines to children to combat most of the deadly childhood illnesses such as measles and polio. Since this point, medicine and antibiotics have grown to large proportions and are now used on a daily basis. We place our trust in pharmaceutical companies and when a drug causes severe injuries, the responsible party deserves to be held accountable and a strong Dallas drug injury lawyer at The Benton Law Firm can help you get the compensation you deserve.
The pharmaceutical industry has shifted from an industry which helps people to one which desires a profit. Profit only comes with new medicinal revenue. As a result, pharmaceutical companies often attempt to increase profits by hurriedly rushing a new drug to market without taking the proper precautions. They additionally attempt to incentivize doctors and health care professionals who will boast the drug to their patients before any medical tests have proven any harmful effects of the drug.
However, this lack of testing can lead to irreparable damage which pharmaceutical companies and participating health care professionals should be responsible for.
Drug injuries have become so widespread recently and touted throughout commercials and billboards that it makes it difficult to trust any pharmaceutical company. Several of the main drugs known to cause injuries include:
- Xarelto: Prescription blood thinner manufactured by Bayer and marketed by Johnson & Johnson.
- Yaz: birth control medication which has been linked to blood clots and increased potassium levels in the blood.
- Chantix: smoking cessation drug which is linked to birth defects.
- Actos and Byetta: Diabetes drugs which have been linked to severe organ damage.
- Eliquis: Prescription blood thinner manufactured by Bristol-Myers Squibb and Pfizer.
- Topamax: migraine drug which has been linked to birth defects.
- Hyland’s Baby Teething Tablets: Homeopathic teething relief medication that has had unexpected side effects
There are many other types of drugs that lead to serious injuries, many even fatal. If you have been injured from a drug produced by pharmaceutical companies, do not hesitate to contact our Dallas personal injury attorney Jeff Benton today.
