Oklahoma Pharmaceutical Litigation
The prescription drug industry is one of the most profitable commercial enterprises in the world, with combined profits in the tens of billions of dollars. Many scientific advances and cures have come from the research performed by these companies, and future cures for AIDS and cancer seem to be closer on the horizon than ever dreamed before. These advances sometimes come at terrible price, however, for in the desire to rush the first drug for a condition to the market, pharmaceutical companies sometimes ignore or conceal negative studies about their medications. While there are many safety tests a drug must pass before it is marketed, these tests can be overlooked or evaded in the name of profit.
The side effects of many drugs often cause their parent companies to recall them in order to prevent them from injuring more people, but by the time a recall is enacted millions of people are potentially exposed to these deadly drugs, often with devastating and permanent consequences. The recent health issues related to Vioxx, Bextra, and Zyprexa are only a few examples of how the most innovative and revolutionary drugs are not necessarily the safest.
If you have suffered side effects due to an adverse drug reaction, you have a right to pursue compensation against the pharmaceutical company who produced it.
