Over the counter and prescription drugs are used by millions of Americans
every day. According to the Centers for Disease Control, roughly 45 percent
of all Americans have used a prescription drug in the past month.
The market for pharmaceutical products is highly competitive. Drug companies
have known since the late 1990s that more new drugs have to hit the market
every year in order to generate revenue for their shareholders. This push
for profit creates an environment that is ideal for innocent people to
be harmed by lesser known drug side effects. A pharmaceutical litigation
lawyer may be asked to prove that a company knowingly doctored safety
trials or covered up clinical data that could have prevented injury or
death from drug side effects. The proof can illustrate a clear case of
The Costs of Drug Side Effects
The staggering variety of drugs on the market and the potential problems
they may cause are two of the most problematic aspects of pharmaceutical
litigation. Paxil, a drug commonly prescribed as an anti-depressant, has
been associated with heart defects in newborns and suicidal ideation or
behaviors in young adults. COX-2 inhibitors such as Vioxx can cause cardiovascular
difficulties and renal dysfunction. Levitra and other erectile dysfunction
drugs can cause sudden hearing loss.
The damage caused by unsafe or poorly tested drugs extends beyond the
person who took the medication. Dealing with a loved one’s frightening
drug-related complications can trigger anguish and depression. The emotional
strain of caring for a loved one can interfere with the basic enjoyment
of life, or can harm a career.
The side effects of drugs may harm the most innocent of victims. Birth
defects caused by supposedly safe drugs deal grievous harm to a family.
Although drug companies test their products, expecting mothers are especially
at risk from unforeseen drug side effects. Should something go wrong,
the loss a mother faces is incalculable.
