Oklahoma City Dangerous Pharmaceutical Products Attorneys
When you go to the doctor and explain your symptoms, you expect that your healthcare provider will be able to accurately diagnose your ailment and prescribe you medication or advice that will resolve the problem. While in many instances this is the case, sometimes a doctor will prescribe an unsafe or dangerous pharmaceutical product that has not been thoroughly tested by its manufacturers.
If you or someone you know has been the victim of a dangerous pharmaceutical product, the drug’s manufacturer may be liable for your losses. Contact the Oklahoma City defective pharmaceutical product attorneys of the Abel Law Firm to discuss the details of your case and determine your legal options.

Testing of Functionality versus Prospective Side Effects
When drug companies manufacture new pharmaceutical products, they subject the new creation to two levels of extensive testing. During this process, the producers are supposed to compile a list of possible side effects that the drug may cause. Unfortunately, when they submit the new drug to the FDA for approval, they do not re-test the drug. Instead, they review the results and opt to approve or disapprove the product.
When a product is approved, the rationale is that the drug offers more benefits than the potential health risks that may accompany it. While the manufacturer’s list is supposed to be comprehensive, many patients who are prescribed new products experience side effects that were not listed or explained to them as a possibility. In many cases, these side effects are dangerous and potentially life threatening.
