Every year, more than 1.5 million Americans suffer illness, injury, or death due to errors in prescribing, dispensing, or taking medication, according to the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. These people deserve compensation for the harm they have suffered using drugs that they were prescribed by physicians. We understand the responsibilities of doctors who prescribe drugs and pharmacies that dispense them. When pharmaceuticals hurt people, we know how to hold those companies accountable.
You assume the medication that your doctor has prescribed, and that has been approved by the FDA, will benefit you or, at worst, be harmless. If that drug does injure you, you may have a right to compensation. Lyons & Lyons in San Antonio is experienced with products liability cases involving prescription drugs and can help you recover the compensation you need to regain your health.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) sets strict standards and practices for drug manufacturers. Pharmaceutical manufacturers are required to test the effectiveness and safety of the drugs they produce. Pharmaceutical manufacturers also have a duty to label products in accordance with FDA regulations and to warn you about known side effects. Our attorneys thoroughly investigate your case to uncover compliance lapses by pharmaceutical companies.
