What you should know about unsafe drugs
Each year, new drugs flood into the marketplace, and each year many of these drugs are recalled or removed from the shelves due to dangerous side effects. While most people have been treated with drugs at some point in their lives and many people have seen the benefits of modern medicine, the unfortunate reality is that big pharmaceutical companies are not always looking out for the consumer’s best interests. These corporations have marketing teams that come up with clever ways to offer promises to improve lives.
Unfortunately, some of these claims are misleading and false. Patients and even their doctors who don’t have adequate information may take a harmful drug and suffer severe and possibly fatal side effects.
Every year in Maine and across the United States, people lose loved ones due to the negligence of the drug companies, leading to wrongful death lawsuits.
