Prescription and nonprescription medications improve and even save the lives of millions of Americans each year. But medical treatments don’t always go as planned, and medicines often have unexpected harmful – or deadly – effects. Every year, about 2.74 million serious adverse effects from approved, properly administered drugs are recorded. 128,000 annual deaths are attributed to consequences of prescription drugs. Even more shockingly, new prescription medications approved within the past five years stand a 1 in 5 chance of directly causing severe reactions.

FDA-approved medications aren’t necessarily safe. If you’ve been harmed by a correctly prescribed and administered medicine, or an over-the-counter medicine, legal action may be an option. Joseph M. Kar can assess your case and determine appropriate proceedings. You should not live in fear of the medications supposed to help you. Contact the Law Office of Joseph M. Kar, PC today.
