Drug Side Effects
Even though the vast majority of pharmaceutical drugs are safe and effective, the FDA has issued recalls on many drugs in recent years after finding them to be unsafe and harmful to consumers. Often, these recalls happen only after users’ lives have been changed forever by destructive drug side effects and complications.
Product liability laws are in place to hold accountable the manufacturers, wholesalers, and distributors responsible for developing and dispensing defective drugs, but upholding these laws requires the help of an experienced personal injury law firm. At Hossley & Embry, our attorneys use their expertise and years of experience to fight for victims who have been harmed by harmful pharmaceutical drugs.
