Everyone knows that prescription and even over-the-counter medications can cause side effects—some of which can occasionally be serious. But most patients are well-informed of the risk of side effects by their doctors or pharmacists, and drug manufacturers are obligated to provide side effect-related information to healthcare providers and patients themselves.

However, there’s another risk that medications pose that isn’t as well known—drug injuries. These adverse effects may not be publicized or acknowledged by drug manufacturers at all, and that means some doctors may even be unaware of their existence.

However, when patients experienced drug injuries, they or their loved ones may find information from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or reputable scientific and medical publications concerning the discovery of potentially serious complications and even recalls of the medications they were prescribed.

At Norris Injury Lawyers, we believe in holding drug manufacturers responsible when their products cause people like you to suffer serious injuries and illnesses. Our Alabama drug injury lawyers know that people who are hurt by prescription medications may need expensive medical procedures to repair the damage they’ve suffered, and they may be unable to work for extended periods of time—if not permanently.

If you or someone you love was hurt by a drug, you don’t have to go through this fight alone. Call us today for a free consultation.
