Prescription drugs are supposed to make you feel better by managing your symptoms or even treating the root cause of your illness. But like all products, prescription drugs can put users in danger because of several reasons, including:
- Design flaws—Sometimes, prescription drugs are developed and designed in a way where they are inherently flawed and dangerous to the patients who take them.
- Manufacturing flaws—In other cases, prescription drugs are safe to take, but become dangerous when they are manufactured in a manner that causes them to be tainted or contaminated.
- Packaging flaws—Some patients have been injured by medications because they got the wrong drugs or the wrong dosages due to packing flaws and labeling errors.
When the liability for these errors falls at the feet of big pharmaceutical companies, many injured patients may feel discouraged. The thought of going up against a multi-billion-dollar corporation may seem hopeless, and they may give up on trying to get compensation.
But at Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, we never back down from a challenge. Whether we’re going up against a small-town insurance company or a Fortune 500 pharmaceutical company, we work with one goal in mind: getting fair compensation for our clients.
