Dangerous Pharmaceutical Products
The pharmaceutical industry is expanding every year to provide customers with ways to help cure or at least maintain their health conditions. While some of these drugs and pharmaceutical products can be important for improving health outcomes, there is also an increased risk of adverse side effects as more products become available and are rushed to market.
If you or someone you know has suffered serious side effects or even wrongful death from a faulty pharmaceutical product, you may be entitled to financial compensation to help pay for medical bills and other expenses.

Side Effects from Defective Pharmaceutical Products
Before a pharmaceutical product can reach consumers, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration must determine that the product is safe for use. Thus, companies are supposed to provide extensive research and testing to prove the drug will not harm patients. When they fail to perform adequate testing on a drug, consumers can face the following side effects:
- Difficulty breathing
- High blood pressure
- Cardiac arrest or other heart problems
If you have suffered serious health complications after taking a defective pharmaceutical product, you may be able to hold the pharmaceutical manufacturer responsible for your pain and suffering.
Medications and pharmaceutical products are supposed to help you, not harm you. If you have been harmed by a defective drug, you can fight back.
