Prescription Drug Liability
If You’ve Been Harmed by a Prescription Drug, Retain the Services of a Portland Personal Injury Attorney
We depend upon prescription drugs to help to make us well when we are sick, to treat certain diseases, and to help us maintain our health. In most cases, prescription drugs work without difficulty. However, if a Portland pharmacy has given you a prescription that was not intended for you or a drug that was not safe for you, you could experience significant harm or injury. If you have been unnecessarily harmed because of a prescription drug, Portland prescription drug liability attorney Mark J. Leeds has the experience necessary to review your case in order to ascertain who should be held accountable: the doctor who prescribed the drug, the pharmacist who dispensed it, and/or the company that manufactured the drug. Any or all of these parties may be financially liable if you’ve been harmed by a prescription drug.
Prescription Drug Liability: Responsibilities of the Drug Manufacturer
Drugs have the power to heal, but they can also cause serious harm. As such, drug manufacturers have a responsibility to ensure the safety of those who may be prescribed their drugs. Although all drugs can have side effects, prescription drugs must be able to provide more benefit than potential harm before they are allowed on the market. Unfortunately, there have been cases in which a pharmaceutical company has circulated a prescription drug before they were certain of its effects. If you have been a victim of such negligence, Portland injury attorney Mark J. Leeds brings more than 30 years of experience with prescription drug liability cases to assist you in recovering any damages you may have incurred because of that drug and will provide you with the representation you will need against a big pharmaceutical company.
