According to the Mayo Clinic, around 70% of all Americans take at least one prescription drug. These drugs are necessary to control chronic health conditions like hypertension, high cholesterol, and diabetes, whereas other drugs are prescribed for only a limited amount of time. Without these prescription drugs, millions of Americans would never get well, or they would feel excruciating physical pain and/or emotional distress.

Unfortunately, not all drugs are safe. Even though the United States has an extensive regulatory scheme, many drugs enter the market each year that are clearly dangerous. Thousands of people are injured when drugs are recalled because of dangerous or unknown side effects.

If you suspect that you have been harmed by a prescription drug, you are not alone. Many drugs have side effects that patients are not warned about or which the pharmaceutical industry has not properly disclosed. MG Law is prepared to help you get the compensation you need and hold Big Pharma accountable. Contact one of our pharmaceutical injury lawyers in Atlanta for a free consultation.

Why Dangerous Drugs Hit the Market

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) must give its stamp of approval before a drug can be dispensed to patients. The FDA process is rigorous, and many drugs are never sold to the public because testing shows that they are not safe or that their risks outweigh any benefits.

Whenever a dangerous drug makes the news, a common question is, “How?” Specifically, how did a drug with dangerous or possibly deadly side effects pass the FDA screening process and make its way to the public?

The answer differs depending on the situation. For example, some manufacturers conceal information from the FDA. Even when they don’t conceal information, some companies will downplay any side effects to make their drugs seem more beneficial than they really are. Other companies do not perform adequate tests or have tests that lack necessary controls.

Even worse, some giant pharmaceutical companies find out later that patients are becoming sit but sit on that information instead of forwarding it to the FDA. The sad reality is that Big Pharma often prioritizes its own profits over public safety. And many regulatory agencies are understaffed and overworked.

At MG Law, we take pride whenever we can hold a big pharmaceutical company accountable for selling dangerous drugs. We understand that lawsuits have an important role to play in keeping the public safe.

How We Bring Cases

Every case begins with listening to an injured victim explain what prescription drugs she is taking and how they make her feel. We can also look at medical records to fully grasp the medical complications she has experienced.

To bring a successful suit, we need to show that the big pharmaceutical company did something wrong. It isn’t enough that a client had a negative reaction to the drug—that sometimes happens. Sometimes, side effects are properly disclosed, and no drug guarantees that it is 100% safe. However, we can bring a suit where we can show one of the following:

  • Negligence. This means that the company failed to use sufficient care in the design or manufacture of drugs. As an example, a research trial might have been poorly designed and run by someone without adequate experience. If a person or company’s negligence caused your injury, you can sue.
  • Strict liability. Georgia puts the burden on manufacturers when they release drugs that are defectively designed, manufactured, or marketed. Unlike negligence, we do not have to show that the pharmaceutical company used insufficient care. Instead, it is enough that the product was defective, and it caused your injuries.  

Choosing the right legal theory is complicated. Sometimes, we plead both theories. However, we always ensure that we gather sufficient evidence to back up our claims.

Compensation when You Are Harmed

At MG Law, our Atlanta pharmaceutical injury lawyers have brought claims to recover the following:

  • Medical care
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress

If a loved one died, then we can seek damages in a wrongful death case, which can make up for things like loss of companionship and loss of financial support.

Every case is different. Some clients obtain more than others, but our pharmaceutical injury lawyers in Atlanta do everything possible to maximize the amount our clients take home.
