Both manufacturers who make drugs and the doctors who prescribe them have a duty to ensure the safety of those who take these medications. However, drug manufacturers and doctors sometimes fail to provide protections for patients taking certain medications.
If you or a loved one suffered an adverse reaction to any drug––either over the counter or prescribed––you may have been put in harm’s way and may collect compensation. Call our team at The Cochran Firm - Nashville today at 615-651-7451 for a free consultation from a Nashville defective drug lawyer regarding your case.
The Risks of Dangerous Drugs
A national climate where drugs are advertised and sometimes freely administered hides a hard truth: certain medications can be extremely dangerous, and even fatal.
Potential side effects of dangerous drugs can include:
- Strokes, which is the fifth leading cause of death in the U.S., according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
- Insomnia, which may lead to secondary health consequences
- Suicidal thoughts
- Dizziness, which may lead to head injury
- Internal bleeding
- Serious conditions, such as cancer or cardiovascular complications
Regardless of the side effects you have suffered, we want to hear from you. Call The Cochran Firm - Nashville today at 615-651-7451 to discuss your case with a member of our team.
