Defective Drugs

Defective Medication Lawyers Las Vegas, Nevada

While about 85% of individuals older than 60 are taking at least one prescription medication in the U.S, roughly 66% of those who visit their doctor are prescribed medication for an illness or condition.

The prevalent use of prescription medications throughout the U.S. has increased significantly in recent years, making it essential for patients to be aware that many of these medications have the potential to cause a range of mild to serious side effects – and, in the worst cases, wrongful death.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, approximately 2.2 million Americans required hospitalization over a single year because of serious reactions to medications. Worse, over 106,000 hospitalized patients will die each year because of prescribed drugs.

If you or a loved one has been injured after using prescription medication, or if you have lost a loved one to a defective drug, the distinguished defective medication lawyers at Bertoldo Carter Smith & Cullen are available to help you seek compensation.

Since 1985, we have been working tirelessly to help those victimized by defective drugs and products stand up for their legal rights and get the compensation they deserve.

Defective Drug Information & How to Avoid Serious Injury From Its Use

If your physician is evaluating your health and overall condition to include a prescription drug regimen, there are several things you and your doctor should discuss to ensure your safety.

Before starting any new course of medication, it is vital for patients to:

  • Discuss their complete medical history with their physician
  • Understand how to properly take the drug, as well as what to avoid to minimize the chances of negative drug interactions
  • Familiarize themselves with the symptoms of the drug’s side effects so they know when to seek medical care

The following are just some of the hundreds of prescription medications that have been reported to cause severe, possibly fatal health complications:

  • Avandia, an oral diabetes drug
  • Byetta, an injectable diabetes medication
  • Fentanyl, a pain medication that is about 100 times stronger than morphine
  • Levaquin, an antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections
  • Raptiva, an oral psoriasis medication
  • Reglan, an oral medication for treating the heartburn caused by GERD
  • Yaz/Yasmin, oral contraceptives
