Stuart Personal Injury Attorney
Were you injured by a dangerous drug?
Prescription medications are prescribed to treat a variety of physical ailments, they are also used to treat pain, ease symptoms and reduce the incidence of arthritis, heart attack, high blood pressure and more. When a physician prescribes a medication or over-the-counter drug, we naturally expect the drug to be safe and effective.
Millions of Americans take prescription medications every day to reduce cholesterol, reduce blood pressure, regulate blood sugar, treat arthritis, prevent pregnancy and treat infections. Unfortunately, not all of these medications are medically safe and many of them do more harm than good causing serious life-threatening, adverse reactions for the patient.
Pharmaceutical drugs are a multi-billion dollar industry and many dangerous drugs are released on the market before their efficacy has been proven. When this happens, the manufacturer takes a "wait and see" approach when it comes to serious side effects.
It's only after innocent patients suffer serious and life-threatening complications from taking a drug, is it removed from the market. At other times, only after unwitting men, women and children are harmed by the drug, are more serious safety warnings provided to the general public. If you or someone you love has experienced serious side effects from taking a dangerous medication, you are strongly urged to contact a Martin County personal injury attorney from Goldstein, Schmitt & Associates, PLC

Martin County Dangerous Drug Lawyer
The firm feels that nobody should suffer serious or life-threatening side effects from any medication. In many cases dangerous drug cases involve the manufacturer's failure to warn the public of dangerous side effects associated with the medication. It is your legal right to be fully informed about the medications you are taking, as well as any legal options you have if you have been victimized by taking unsafe medication.
Dangerous drug cases often involve pharmaceutical recalls; therefore, you have every right to seek compensation if you have taken a dangerous drug that was released on the market. Dangerous medications can create serious side effects such as liver failure, kidney failure, high blood pressure, birth defects, tumors, cancer, heart attack, strokes and even death.
