Prescription and over-the-counter drugs can serve many valuable purposes. Some medications can even save lives. If a drug is released before it is properly tested, if it is manufactured improperly, or if it is prescribed for off-label use, however, the results can be the opposite of what was intended. Patients can suffer from harmful or even deadly side effects. Birth defects, organ failure, high blood pressure, excessive bleeding, suicide, and a range of other serious side effects have all been linked to dangerous drugs.
Spohrer Dodd is committed to helping patients injured by defective and dangerous drugs. As experienced trial lawyers with the manpower and resources to take on even the biggest pharmaceutical companies, we have the ability to succeed in these extremely challenging cases. Even if the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the drug that caused your side effects, this does not mean that you have no case. Our Jacksonville drug injury lawyers can investigate the situation and can look for reports similar to yours, which may indicate a larger problem. We can take the necessary steps to hold the drug company responsible.
