What You Need To Know About Defective Drugs

Some important information about defective drugs appears below. You probably have questions about your case. In a free consultation, an attorney at Galligan Reid PC can review your situation and explain your legal options.

Drug manufacturers can take shortcuts when developing new medications — Pharmaceutical research and development activities are very expensive. In the effort to recover those costs, drug manufacturers can overlook or ignore potential risks and put potentially harmful drugs on the market.

Medical researchers and the FDA monitor prescription drugs — Medical researchers at universities and research institutes conduct many studies each year concerning the potential risks of certain prescription drugs. The Food and Drug Administration continually reviews these studies and periodically issues warnings concerning drugs with harmful side effects, as well as drug recall notices.

You can learn more about harmful medications by visiting the websites listed on the Safety First page of this website.

Listen to your doctor and read the drug advisory information — You will learn about the expected side effects of the medication and the warning signs that could indicate a problem. If you do experience serious or unexpected side effects, see your doctor as soon as possible.

Do not stop taking medications before talking with your doctor — If the FDA or the manufacturer issues a recall notice for a medication you are taking, you should speak with your doctor as soon as possible. You should only stop taking a medication on the express instructions of your doctor.

You have the right to claim compensation — Our legal system provides recourse for people who have been harmed by prescription medications. Galligan Reid PC is a law firm dedicated to helping defective drug victims obtain compensation and justice for the harm they have suffered.
