Whether it’s a prescription drug or an over-the-counter (OTC) drug, all types of drugs can cause side effects for users. And unfortunately, the side effects can range from loss of appetite or vomiting to more severe injuries, including loss of body function, cancer, heart attack, stroke, and even death.
That’s why drug manufactures and the Food and Drug Administration must carefully evaluate drugs before they’re released on the market. Otherwise, consumers can be put a risk.
When you’ve been seriously harmed by a drug you were taking, your injuries can be temporary, long-term, or permanent, depending on how long you were taking the medication, what other medications you were taking at the time, what the dosage of the drug was, and several other factors.
If you were injured by a drug you were taking, you may be entitled to compensation. A North Carolina drug injury attorney can help you determine what caused your injuries and who should be held accountable. Call us now at (866) 777-1170 or complete a free initial consultation form.
