Houston Defective Drugs Attorney
Advances in medical science have led to the development of drugs that have helped millions of people. Unfortunately, greed and other motivations have also led to numerous prescription drugs being rushed to market without adequate testing. The long-term effects of such drugs are often poorly understood, difficult to determine, and have been approved by laboratories funded by the drug manufacturers themselves. To make matters worse, it often seems that people have to be injured or die before a harmful medication is recalled.
Generally speaking, when an injury occurs and a lawsuit is filed, the case will be based on personal injury law and typically fall into subcategories such as pharmaceutical injury law, product failure or medical malpractice/negligence. In other instances, lawsuits can be based on improperly filled prescriptions. In a situation such as this, pharmacists and/or doctors would be held liable.
