There have been many recalled drugs in recent years. When major prescription and over-the-counter medications get recalled, it often makes headlines in the national news. That can lead many people to assume that the drugs that are still on the market are 100% safe. However, that’s not always the case.
In some cases, dangerous drugs stick around on the market for years or even decades before enough evidence piles up showing the risks they pose to patients that their manufacturers or the FDA initiates a recall. In other cases, the drugs are never recalled and they continue to harm patients year after year, decade after decade.
Because not all dangerous drugs are recalled or publicized, it can be difficult for people who suspect they’ve been harmed by one to reach out for help. They may not know where to turn or whether their cases will be taken seriously.

We know that most people aren’t aware of the risks the medications they take pose to them, especially when the manufacturers don’t disclose that information to them or their doctors. But our legal team keeps a close eye on the pharmaceutical injury, and we go to work right away when we learn that drugs may be harming innocent patients.
