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.

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 for marketing.
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 dangerous drugs attorney as soon as possible. Innocent consumers should not have to pay for the expenses that result from an unsafe pharmaceutical product.
The Springfield dangerous drugs attorneys at Strong-Garner-Bauer P.C., may be able to help you fight for financial compensation if you have suffered from a dangerous pharmaceutical product’s side effects.
