Drugs Linked Injury

Experienced Kentucky Drug Linked Injury Law Firm

Every year across the country hundreds of people are injured by drugs that are believed to be safe because the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approves them. Many times we have seen the recall of harmful pharmaceuticals put on the market approved the FDA. Drug manufacturers market and sell medicines that have not been properly tested or approved by the FDA or distribution medicines without appropriate labels or warnings. If you have been injured after the consumption of an approved drug, or if you have a family member who has died after consuming an approved drug, you may be entitled to compensation. You need an attorney experienced in defective pharmaceutical drug linked personal injury cases. Miniard Law Office has represented drug linked injury cases throughout Kentucky and around the nation.

Dangers of Harmful Prescription and Over-the-Counter Drugs

In addition to prescription medications, the FDA regulates the safety of over-the-counter (OTC) drugs, which include medications that relieve common complaints like headaches, allergy symptoms, and indigestion. Dangerous or defective prescription and OTC drugs have posed significant health risks and personal injuries. New research often uncovers hidden drug dangers too late for many whose lives are significantly altered following their use. Improper labeling of drugs has also posed significant health hazards. Some recently identified defective drugs include:

    • Accutane
    • Avandia
    • Chantix
    • Lotronex
    • Mirapex
    • Oxycontin
    • Prempro
    • Propulsid
    • Reglan
    • Rezulin
    • Yasmin/Yaz

Among the many complications from the consumption of either prescription or over-the-counter drugs are:

    • Birth Defects
    • Liver damage
    • Kidney damage
    • Heart attack and Cardiac complications
    • Stomach Problems
