Drug Injury Lawyers in San Antonio

Over 50 percent of people in America take some type of prescription drug. Prescription drugs are designed to alleviate symptoms and treat the condition. All medications come with the possibility of side effects. However, some people have experienced serious side effects while they were taking medications.

Many people believe that if a medication was prescribed to them by a doctor, then it must be safe. On the contrary, using a prescription medication can be just as dangerous as using a street drug. It is estimated that 51 percent of the drugs that have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration have dangerous side effects. Many of these side effects were not detected before the drug was approved. Painkillers and drugs that are used to treat arthritis are among the most dangerous types of drugs to use.

Digestive problems, irregular heartbeat, kidney failure, suicidal thoughts, and liver toxicity are some of the side effects that are commonly associated with using prescription drugs. People who take multiple medications at the same time are at a greater risk for experiencing negative side effects. Some drugs may interact with other medications.

Drug manufacturers are responsible for educating doctors about the possible side effects of the medications that they produce. However, in many cases, drug manufacturers do not warn people about the possible side effects of using their medication. In fact, some drug manufacturers do not even test their drugs properly before they are administered to patients. As a result of this, many people have suffered dangerous side effects after taking medications. There have also been many deaths caused by dangerous drug side effects.

Studies have shown that the number of people dying from prescription drug reactions or overdoses is increasing. It is estimated that there are 1.5 million people each year who suffer a severe injury after using a prescription drug. Furthermore, prescription drugs cause 100,000 deaths each year.

If you or someone you know has suffered an injury after using a prescription drug, then you should contact ZD Law Firm. You may be able to get compensation. Getting compensated for a prescription drug injury can be a long and complicated process. Lawyers have to be able to prove that your injury was indeed caused by the medication that you were taking. However, our Personal Injury Attorneys try their best to make sure that all of our clients receive the compensation that they deserve.
