Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Charleston & nearby areas of South Carolina
During the course of the past century, there have been incredible advances made in the development and use of pharmaceutical drugs to treat all manner of ailments. Though these drugs are regulated by the United States Food and Drug Administration and are therefore assumed to be safe, the reality is that unsafe medications frequently make their way to the marketplace.
If you or your loved one has been harmed by a defective or dangerous medication, then it may be possible to hold a negligent pharmaceutical company accountable for its negligence. A successful civil claim may gain you financial compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and other damages as appropriate. Contact the Charleston product liability lawyers of the Steinberg Law Firm at 843-720-2800 to speak directly with a skilled and experienced attorney about your case.
Every year there are numerous drug recalls issued, often due to dangerous side effects. This should serve as a reminder that even over-the-counter medications contain potent chemicals that can be dangerous if not properly balanced. Some of the harmful effects of dangerous pharmaceutical products include:
Dangerously high or low blood pressure
Impaired immune system function
Sterility or infertility
Internal organ damage
If a drug is not thoroughly tested before being released, or if its manufacturer fails to carefully oversee its production, innocent people can suffer from serious harm.
It is important that you have access to the resources that are necessary to contend with medical expenses and other damages associated with adverse effects caused by a dangerous drug. Contact the Charleston personal injury attorneys of the Steinberg Law Firm at 843-720-2800.
