Baton Rouge Lawyer for Dangerous Drug Cases

Injuries, Illness or Death from Prescription Medications

Defective or dangerous drugs are regarded as prescription drugs that cause damage to a victim who used them. Under federal regulation, drug companies are expected to thoroughly test any prescription drugs that may be headed to the open market to make sure they are safe for consumption. These tests are usually carried out through large testing trials with a range of different types of people. After a drug has been determined to be safe for consumption by the general public or those who have a written prescription from a doctor, it can be released onto the market. Additionally, drug companies must list important information such as ingredients and directions for use on the label of each drug product being offered, as well as all potential side effects.

Attorney Helping Those Injured by Dangerous Drugs in Baton Rouge

Too often, drug companies do not sufficiently test their products before making them available to the public. In these situations, victims may be harmed from side effects such as dizziness, seizures, bleeding, fatigue, depression or any other number of disastrous conditions. A Baton Rouge injury attorney from The Layfield Law Firm, LLC is adept at handling cases involving dangerous drugs against offending companies, and has seen many victims find the compensation they deserved with a well-presented case.

Taking a dangerous drug that has not been thoroughly tested, or that has not had proper warnings about side effects on the label, can have serious consequences. Complications from any side effects may lead to prolonged illness leading to permanent disability or death. Compensation is required for the victims of this type of corporate negligence to cover costs associated with the condition and recovery, permanent disabilities that will require life-long care and, in the worst case scenario, death. The Layfield Law Firm, LLC takes a personal interest in every client, and will handle your personal injury case with the kind of experience, preparedness and detail that you should expect.
