Drug Injuries & Defective Drugs

Although the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and other government agencies work to regulate consumer goods and keep Americans safe from dangerous drugs, there are still instances where an over-the-counter medicine or prescription drug may cause serious side effects. If you or a loved one has been injured by a defective drug, it is important that you contact an attorney to discuss your legal rights and options. You may be able to seek and recover significant financial compensation for your injuries.
