Boniva® Attorneys Jacksonville
FDA Recall, Warning or Action: While this drug is meant to prevent bone fracture, it may cause rare but still critical fractures of its own.
Prescription medications are often expunged from pharmacy shelves after recurrent cases of dangerous side effects are diagnosed. Our law firm’s trial lawyers work closely with product specialists to identify potentially harmful drugs, bad warning labels, insufficient medical directions, product design flaws as well as known complications. Now and again, the manufacturer or marketer may have already taken positive steps to remove the dangerous drug, or to label the product with adequate instructions or warnings. Surprising, there are still times where big pharmaceutical providers elect not to notify consumers or their doctor that a potential problem has been identified.
