New drugs are subjected to two levels of testing by their manufacturers before they are submitted to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for review and approval. During these two rounds of testing, the drug’s effectiveness is weighed against its possible side effects. While the findings of these tests are supposed to be definitive, they sometimes are not. Hundreds of unsafe drugs have been recalled from the market because they are unsafe for use.
If you or someone you know has been the victim of a dangerous or defective pharmaceutical product, the drug’s manufacturers may be liable for your losses.

Issuing a Recall
Most prescription drug recalls are made at the request of the Food and Drug Administration. Under the law, the FDA must request such recalls, rather than demanding them. Fortunately, companies generally comply with such requests. In addition, the FDA does have the authority to confiscate dangerous products and order a company to stop making them.
Frustratingly, recalls are generally not issued until there is clear evidence that people have been harmed by a defective product. It is unjust for anyone to suffer painful injuries because of a pharmaceutical company’s mistakes. When defective drugs harm people, our Oklahoma drug recall lawyers work hard to help victims fight for justice.
If you have been the victim of a defective or dangerous pharmaceutical product, you deserve compensation for your losses.
