Have You or a Loved One Taken a Prescription Drug That Has Been Recalled?
Prescription drugs are mostly a modern miracle and can, of course, save lives! But sometimes these prescription drugs can have the adverse effect—they can be deadly. Serious injuries caused by dangerous prescription drugs are on the rise, regardless of actions (or inactions) by federal agencies, health authorities, corporations, physicians, and pharmacists. As recent recalls have shown, FDA approval doesn’t guarantee that a drug is safe. Having defective drugs on the market can lead to significant health risks including serious disabilities and hospitalization. Sometimes even death.
Prescription drug manufacturers (pharmaceutical corporations) have a responsibility to make drugs safe for the marketplace. In many cases, they are asked to provide warning labels for physicians and the pharmacy that dispenses their product. But all too often, pharmaceutical companies are aware that a drug can cause harmful side effects or death, and they may choose profit over safety.
Although prescription drugs are often recalled due to side effects, some pharmaceutical companies rush a product to market and/or aggressively promote the drug by persuading consumers to ask for the drug and convincing physicians to prescribe it. In their rush to design the next “blockbuster” drug, pharmaceutical companies can put the consumer at risk. In other words, corporations put profit above safety.
When you get a prescription for a drug from your physician, you believe it to be safe. But according to the US Food and Drug Administration, “safe” means that the benefits of the drug outweigh the risks for the population the drug is intended to treat and for its intended use. In other words, a safe drug doesn’t necessarily mean it is harmless.
A defective drug means that its potential risks outweighs its possible benefits to the consumer and can lead to bad drug lawsuits.
The FDA tests drugs and approves them prior to becoming available to people, but some drug side effects, particularly long-term effects, can be difficult to determine. The FDA keeps an updated list of common drugs that have been shown to be defective.

I'll Protect You and Your Rights
Are you concerned that you have taken a defective drug that was recalled and caused harm to you or your loved one? If so, you need an experienced attorney who specializes in pharmaceutical and defective drug lawsuits.
I’ve been serving product liability victims in (and around) Houston, Texas, since 2001. I have nearly two decades of experience helping people just like you. There is a lot that goes into a pharmaceutical lawsuit. I’m here to help every step of the way.
Recovering compensation is a lengthy and complicated process. Drug companies often have powerful in-house legal counsel who will try to tie up claims for years. Drug companies have also been known to pressure victims into making hasty decisions. What may seem like a fast and fair settlement can be grossly undervalued, and this can degrade your physical, emotional, and financial well-being for many years to come.
My job is to protect you and stop that from happening.
