Countless patients across the country depend on daily medications to battle any number of medical issues. It is assumed that these medications are generally harmless and safe to use. However, that’s not always the case, and in certain instances, the drugs your doctor gives you can be defective or inherently dangerous to your long-term well-being. At Kaylor, Kaylor & Leto, P.A., our attorneys fight for your right to collect proper damages for any injury you sustain as a result of taking a defective drug. This involves serious issues that can have a lasting impact on your overall health, so it’s in your best interests to seek medical attention and legal assistance as soon as you notice any harmful symptoms from a dangerous medication.
What constitutes a defective drug?
A drug can be harmful for a number of different reasons. That is why at Kaylor, Kaylor & Leto, P.A., we are dedicated to providing you with individualized attention so we can better understand the circumstance surrounding your specific injuries. Our attorneys work to find out what caused the drug to harm you, such as:
- Defective manufacturing — Sometimes a drug has been proven to be safe for consumers, but for a variety of different reasons, a specific batch becomes tainted. This leads to a host of medical issues for anyone taking it. The responsibility for this falls directly on the manufacturer, who is responsible for making sure that drugs are always produced to approved specifications.
- Dangerous side effects — Side effects are unavoidable with certain medications, but sometimes side effects cause serious injuries or even death. If a drug’s warning label downplays the severity of its side effects or, worse yet, hides them from the consumer completely, our legal team is capable of taking the responsible party to court and fighting for fair compensation.
- Inappropriate marketing — When a drug is marketed to the wrong audience or when the company conceals a hidden danger about taking it, a patient’s health is put at risk. Our attorneys find and bring to court the party responsible for the marketing and warning labels on a dangerous drug. We get the proper medical compensation for whatever injury you have sustained as a result of negligence.
What types of drugs can be dangerous?
Any drug can have dangerous side effects or be defectively manufactured. The most serious of these are the medications that people depend on every day for urgent medical conditions, including:
