What Should You Do if You Suspect a Drug Injury?
Prescription or over-the-counter medications are supposed to make us feel better when we’re hurt or sick. In addition, drug manufacturers and regulatory bodies are supposed to make sure that the drugs they release into the marketplace are safe to use as prescribed.
At Rainwater, Holt & Sexton, we know that isn’t the case for many innocent victims. Our Arkansas drug injury lawyers have fought for the rights of people whose conditions worsened or who developed new complications after taking medications.
If you or someone you love is taking a medication that resulted in adverse health effects, there are two steps you should take right away:
- Call your doctor. Before you stop taking the medication, talk to your doctor and explain the symptoms you’re experiencing. Never stop taking a medication without approval from your doctor.
- Call a law firm. Proving drug injuries requires plenty of evidence and a conclusive link between taking the medication and the illness or injury occurring. The sooner you get help from our attorneys, the sooner we can begin gathering evidence related to your claim.
If a prescription or over-the-counter medication causes a severe reaction or illness, call 911 immediately.
After drug injuries, victims and their families may feel helpless, but our legal team isn’t afraid of standing up to big drug manufacturers. Call today for a free consultation.
