Drug Company Lawsuit Attorney in Houston
Negligent Pharmaceutical Corporations Must be Held Accountable
A drug that was previously seen as a very effective medication can quickly be vilified for causing health issues such as cancer, birth defects, bone injuries, and cardiac events. A common concern in these cases is: How or why was the drug was approved by the FDA to begin with? As with all big businesses, market share and profit are what is important.
In many cases, manufacturers of products such as Invokana and other Type 2 diabetes drugs, Zantac, Johnson & Johnson baby powder, HIV preventative meds (including Truvada), and the weight loss drug Belviq (and Belviq XR) do not disclose the potential for injury or illness to the FDA.
