It’s an unfortunate reality for countless patients every year—they visit their doctors after suffering injuries or illnesses and are prescribed medications that are supposed to help them. But instead of making them feel better, the drugs cause new complications that can be disabling and even life-threatening.
Although both prescription and over-the-counter medications are regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and are required to undergo several rounds of testing before they’re approved, dangerous drugs can and often do slip through the cracks.
Those drugs can end up on pharmacy shelves and inside medicine cabinets for years before new information proves that they pose risks to the people who take them. And in many cases, the drug manufacturers were aware or should have been aware of the dangers, but instead chose profits over patient safety.
At Ponce Law, our Nashville drug injury lawyers believe that negligent pharmaceutical companies should be held liable for any health problems suffered by people who take their medications. We help drug injury victims like you by:
- Collecting evidence that proves the medication caused health problems—Drug companies and their insurers frequently deny that medications caused complications, but we can gather evidence that leaves no doubt.
- Negotiating to get maximum compensation—Even when drug companies agree to pay settlements, they frequently offer small checks to victims. We know what it takes to help you get the full amount that you deserve.
We’re not afraid to stand up to big drug companies and their insurers when it comes to protecting clients like you. Call today for a free consultation.
