Protecting Your Rights When The Pharmaceutical Companies Did Not

When you get a prescription from your doctor, you have a reasonable expectation that your doctor, the Food and Drug Administration and the manufacturer of the drug have done their best to ensure that it is safe for you to take. Sadly, that's not always the case and people end up hurt.

At Scott M. Brown & Associates, we believe that victims of dangerous drugs deserve compensation for the injuries or illnesses they have incurred. Our lawyers understand the suffering you have been through and will stand up for you in the face of giant corporations and insurance companies, which sometimes try to shirk their responsibilities.

Understanding The Facts About Defective Drug Recalls

One study conducted by Reuters that looked at drug recalls and notifications from the FDA uncovered some frightening statistics. Researchers looked at recalls from 2004 to 2011. During that span, the FDA recalled 1,700 drugs, 91 of which were considered Class I. This means 91 drugs could cause "serious adverse health consequences or death." Moreover, the study found that, of those 91 Class I drug recalls, only 55 were announced through the FDA's recall alert system. That equates to about one in five going unreported.

Act Now To Protect Your Right To Compensation

If you have suffered as a result of a dangerous or defective drug, it's important to act quickly. Pharmaceutical lawsuits take time and require the input of various experts. Those that turn into class-action lawsuits have additional requirements and deadlines to meet. Therefore, the sooner we can get started on your case, the better.
