Drug Recall Lawyer

One of the greatest advancements of modern society has been the discovery of helpful drugs that treat life threatening illnesses and debilitating conditions. Indeed, our advanced knowledge of drugs, which help fight disease and improve quality of life is considered one of the greatest achievements of modern society.

But sometimes drugs don’t work as they are intended, and there may even be a recall of a drug due to serious health and safety concerns. If this happens to you, it may be time to contact a drug recall lawyer to evaluate your situation.

The development of pharmaceutical knowledge spans hundreds, even thousands of years, and it is one of the key reasons that the average lifespan of humans has increased. With the average person in a developed country expected to live beyond the age of 80 years old, the time the average person lives has increased dramatically since the medieval times, when an average lifespan in most places was barely more than 30 years.

And the longer a person lives, the greater the chances of contracting a serious illness or developing a long term health concern that requires continuous treatment. With this longer lifespan, more and more Americans rely on prescription drugs to maintain good health into their old age.

Doctors prescribe antibiotics to fight infections, pain medication and anti-inflammatory drugs for injuries and all kinds of treatments for issues with glands, organs, and systems. And new drugs are being introduced all the time. 

Of course part of this development of newer and more-advanced drugs is that they have to undergo trials with sample groups to determine if they are safe. And once a new drug has passed the trial process, they have to be moved into mass production and trialed with an entire population of thousands or even millions of patients.

And with that massive expansion, there come many risks. The manufacturing process has many pitfalls where products can become tainted or prone to contamination. And a drug that trialed successfully with 5,000 patients for 2 years might not have been fully vetted to work reliably and safely for a sample of 100,000 patients and remain safe for 10 years.

If you or someone you love has been hurt by a drug that has been recalled, you may need the services of a drug recall lawyer to see if you qualify for compensation. Drug companies will produce replacements and doctors may help you find new medicine, but neither will help you get the compensation you deserve.

By engaging a drug recall lawyer to advise you, you’ll be in the best possible position to protect yourself from harm. By knowing your rights and knowing the responsibilities of your doctors and the drug makers responsible for the drugs you were taking, you can make sure you’re eligible for compensation and for any treatments that might be available to you.

If you or a loved one is in need of a professional drug recall lawyer, Long Island Law is there for you.
