Harrisburg Medical Malpractice Lawyers for Prescription Drug Injury

Holding Pharmaceutical Companies Accountable

Medications can decrease your pain, increase your quality of life and lower your risk of death. You trust that the prescription drugs you take have been tested for safety and efficacy. Unfortunately, some pharmaceutical companies are more concerned about profits and regulatory bureaucracies are bound by red tape. Tainted or improperly tested drugs enter the market as a result. The prescription drug injury firm The Moyles Law Firm protects consumers from negligent and unethical corporations by holding the culpable parties accountable for the injuries caused by their products.

FDA Approval and Alerts

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is taxed with the duty of approving drugs before they enter the market. The overwhelmed government agency relies heavily on the research and due diligence of the industry that stands to profit from approval of its products. When a pharmaceutical is subsequently found defective or harmful, the FDA issues alerts and recalls to warn the public of the dangers. In many cases, the FDA’s actions were preceded by personal injury lawsuits that exposed the drugs’ hazards to consumers.

Pittsburgh medical malpractice lawyer, Jim Moyles, has more than 30 years of experience assisting injured patients and families whose loved ones have been killed by negligent drug manufacturers and distributors.

Common Drugs that have caused Injury and Death

You may not immediately realize that your ailments resulted from the medications your doctor prescribed. Drug companies are likely to attribute your adverse reactions and debilitating side effects to an underlying condition. Learning the truth about your injuries is vital to beginning your recovery.

Jim considers your medical history and the type of medications you took to determine if you have a valid claim. He is familiar with which pharmaceuticals are involved in medical malpractice litigation and whether the FDA has initiated any relevant actions. Among a long list, the following drugs and vaccines are alleged to have caused serious injury or death:

  • Accutane
  • Celebrex
  • Chantix
  • Crestor
  • Ephedra
  • Oxycontin
  • Paxil
  • Serzone
  • Thimerosal
  • Vioxx
  • Yaz
  • Zeprexa
