Skilled DC Dangerous Drugs AttorneyLeading pharmaceutical companies and drug manufacturers spend years researching and testing new drugs and medications. Despite the years of research, clinical studies, and clinical trials, may new drugs are pushed into the market before the risks are fully known. When a drug or medication does more harm than good, and the health risks associated with using a drug outweigh its potential benefits, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) may deem them to be dangerous and subject to close monitoring. In some cases, the FDA, the agency providing governmental oversight in the development and marketing of these drugs, determines that the drug is defective and issues a mandatory recall. For patients who have been adversely affected by taking these risky medications, a DC dangerous drugs attorney can file a lawsuit against negligent or careless pharmaceutical companies.
