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 to treat bacterial infections. Later, vaccines were provided to children to combat most deadly childhood illnesses such as measles and polio. Since this point, medicine and antibiotics have grown to large proportions and are now used daily. 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 that helps people to one which desires 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 healthcare professionals should be responsible for.
Drug injuries have become so widespread recently and touted throughout commercials and billboards that it is difficult to trust any pharmaceutical company. Several of the main drugs known to cause injuries include:
Many other types of drugs lead to serious injuries, many even fatal. If a drug produced by pharmaceutical companies has injured you, do not hesitate to contact our Dallas personal injury attorney Jeff Benton today.
