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.
