Over-the-counter drugs and prescription drugs exist to help us treat symptoms of medical conditions as well as the underlying conditions themselves. From taking ibuprofen to taking a daily regimen of prescription drugs, people across South Carolina and the United States regularly rely on drugs to help them get through the day. In fact, statistics indicate that more than 4 billion prescriptions were filled in pharmacies across the U.S. in a single year, and that does not even count the millions of drugs dispensed in hospitals and doctors offices.
While many over-the-counter and prescription drugs are incredibly helpful and even help save users’ lives, there are certain drugs that actually cause additional injuries to users. Some side effects are to be expected, especially if a drug is significantly affecting the way your body works. However, in some cases, the injuries and complications caused by the drugs are in themselves extremely serious and may require extensive and costly medical treatment.
If you have suffered a serious and unnecessary injury from a dangerous pharmaceutical, you should consult with a highly skilled drug injury attorney in Myrtle Beach as soon as possible. Though these cases are unfortunately common, they can be complicated, so please contact our office call today so we can begin evaluating your case.
