There are drugs on the market that are considered dangerous, forcing patients to weigh the advantages against the disadvantages. Many times, they find that the advantages outweigh the disadvantages that they know about. Unfortunately, as we’ve learned first hand with the kombiglyze lawsuit, not all of the disadvantages are disclosed and it is usually because the testing on the drugs was not adequate or some effects were purposely undisclosed in order to get the drug on the market.
If you have sustained an injury or illness from a dangerous prescription drug and you were not informed of all of the risks you were taking, you could be entitled to monetary compensation. While filing a lawsuit against a pharmaceutical company can seem intimidating, your Southern Minnesota personal injury attorney can help you. Usually when many people have experienced the same issue with a drug, the case becomes a part of a class action lawsuit against the pharmaceutical company.

Just because you agreed to take the medication does not mean you have to pay the consequences. If the medication caused a side effect, illness, or injury that was not specified on its warning label and it is proven that the medication caused it (such as when multiple cases exist), then the company that manufactured the drug can be held liable for their negligence.
