Advances in science and medicine have made it possible for people to live with, or even be cured of, diseases and illnesses that were once considered life threatening. These days, a prescription drug or a certain type of treatment can literally mean the difference between life and death. Unfortunately these medical marvels often come with a price.
While most people assume that approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration means a drug is safe, recent examples prove this can be a dangerous assumption. Too often, problems with particular medications surface only after their use becomes widespread. By the time doctors and regulators spot the trouble, it’s often too late for patients taking these prescription drugs.
By law, drug manufacturers can be held liable for injuries caused by a defective or unreasonably dangerous product, even if the manufacturer was unaware of the danger. At Rasansky Law Firm, we work to help victims who sought to improve their health, but instead were injured by the prescription drugs they relied on for relief. If dangerous drugs have injured you or a loved one, contact the Law Offices of Jeffrey H. Rasansky for more information regarding your legal rights and options.
