Texas Dangerous Drug Claim Shows FDA Recalls Can’t Prevent Drug Injury

Posted by John J. Kahn, Jr. | Apr 06, 2012 | 0 Comments

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates the safety of prescription and over-the-counter pharmaceutical drugs. Despite the methods used to keep the public safe, a dangerous drug claim and drug injury are not uncommon. Drug injury lawyers, such as a Texas personal injury lawyer experienced in dangerous drug claims, can provide you with the legal advice needed and help protect your rights.  

How Recalls Are Handled

A recall removes a drug from the marketplace. Medications may be recalled at the request of a drug company, by the FDA or by an FDA order under statutory authority. 

There are 3 classification levels for recalls instituted by the FDA.  
  • Class I recall – There is reasonable probability that use or exposure to a drug will result in serious adverse health effects or death.
  • Class II recall – There are reasons to believe that use or exposure to a particular medication may result in temporary health consequences or a remote probability of serious adverse health effects.
  • Class III recall – There are reasons to believe that use or exposure to a pharmaceutical product is not likely to cause adverse health consequences. 
Since you may not be aware when a drug is classified as having adverse health effects by the FDA, it is always helpful to have a Texas personal injury lawyer on call.

Contacting a Texas Personal Injury Lawyer

A drug injury from prescribed or over-the-counter medicines requires expert drug injury lawyers to assess the probability of a dangerous drug claim. When you have experienced legal representation on your side, you can rest assured that your attorney will fight for all compensation to which you may be entitled, including past, current and future medical expenses; pain and suffering; lost earnings or earning potential; or wrongful death benefits.

While you focus on your recovery and emotional wellbeing, you should have a Texas personal injury lawyer at The Kahn Law Firm advocating for your rights. Contact us today – 1-713-226-9900 or toll free 1-844-301-KAHN.
