Is your medication killing you? When your doctor writes a prescription, you believe the medication will help make you better. Your doctor shares that belief. Then why are you not getting better? Why do you have new, unexplained symptoms? Why did your loved one die?

Doctors rely on drug manufacturers to conduct proper clinical trials and represent the truth to the FDA when attempting to get approval to sell a new drug to the public. The FDA must depend on the drug manufacturers to follow correct and safe procedures. Too often that trust is betrayed. Prescription drug manufacturers are among the largest, most profitable corporations in our country. With utter disregard for the end results, these powerful entities will misrepresent the facts of clinical trials with seeming impunity. They seek FDA approval with their only goal being their already inflated bottom line, rather than public welfare.
Today, tomorrow, and every day, it is possible that someone will be prescribed or buy a potentially dangerous drug. Someone may die. You or one of your loved ones may be one of these people. We believe that no matter how large or how powerful the negligent party, they must be held accountable. Our San Antonio prescription drug attorneys have the experience, knowledge, and resources to help you get the reparations you deserve.
Many prescription medications on the market today carry serious warnings of potential hazards, including death. The FDA requires that some drugs carry a “black box warning” explaining their potentially dangerous side effects. You most likely have never seen and never will see one of these black box warnings. Other medications have been pulled by the FDA as a result of serious or lethal complications. Fosamax, Singulair, Avandia, Phen Phen, Paxil, Benicar, Avastia and Vioxx are among the many drugs that are known to be potentially dangerous, having caused serious side effects and death. Sadly, the list goes on and on, and the number of victims continues to grow. The responsibility to oppose the drug manufacturers and protect the public falls directly on experienced dangerous drug attorneys like Villarreal & Begum.
Dangerous drugs are not limited solely to prescription drugs. Over the counter medications are also hazardous. Often, manufacturers fail to maintain proper quality controls, allowing drugs to be filled with impurities. Johnson and Johnson recently expanded a massive recall that began last year due to poor quality controls. Several of their medications including but not limited to Tylenol, Tylenol PM, Benadryl, Motrin and others are unsafe. Some were recalled because of impurities while others had the more serious complication of containing too much of the active ingredient.
Although dangerous drugs are often taken voluntarily it is not uncommon for people to take them without knowing exactly what harm it can cause to their body. You might go to a hospital in a nursing home in this are’s a certain drug that you don’t know can cause side effects. You also might receive medication from a company or Doctor that can cause severe damages down the road. If this is the case then you a small chance of representing yourself against a large Corporation. Drug companies are known for battling out lawsuits with huge teams of legal professionals, making it difficult for you to even stand a chance. This is why you must hire a personal injury lawyer if you get injured due to dangerous drugs.
The problem with dangerous drugs is that they are usually backed by large corporations who are willing to put together huge teams of legal professionals in order to keep you quiet. This is why is it so difficult for individuals to confront drug companies without being taken down financially. If you take dangerous drugs then it is essential to contact a personal injury lawyer because they can put together their own large teams of lawyers who are used to competing with the big corporations.
