Vioxx, Rezulin & Other Dangerous Drugs
Pharmaceutical Negligence Attorneys in Springfield, MO
Pharmaceutical companies are able to grow and expand their businesses by
developing and marketing new drugs. Since these drugs often alter or interfere
with an individual’s bodily functions, they have to be thoroughly
tested before they are allowed to hit the market.
Unfortunately, certain pharmaceutical products like Vioxx and Rezulin produce
side effects that were not detected until they caused serious harm to
innocent consumers. If you or someone you love suffered harm after using
a dangerous pharmaceutical, contact the
Springfield product liability lawyers at Strong-Garner-Bauer P.C. today at (417) 855-2022.
Unintended Side Effects
Testing for new pharmaceuticals typically consists of laboratory testing,
during which time a drug is tested on lab mice. After observing how mice
react to the drug, the scientists who produced it will either determine
that it is safe for human testing or unsafe for human consumption.
If the drug is determined to be safe for human testing, then the drug will
undergo human trials, and the developing scientists will observe its effects
and side effects. If it is still considered safe, then it may be approved
Unfortunately, drugs such as Vioxx and Rezulin have shown us that pharmaceuticals
can have unintended side effects, including liver damage and cardiovascular
disease. Victims of dangerous pharmaceutical products are encouraged to
discuss their cases with a Springfield personal injury attorney as soon
as possible. Innocent consumers should not have to pay for the expenses
that result from an unsafe pharmaceutical product.
