Crestor® Attorneys Jacksonville
FDA Recall, Warning or Action: The FDA warns that certain groups of patients are more at risk of side effects such as rhabdomyolysis. This is a severe kidney disorder that can lead to renal failure and death in severe cases.
Our attorneys realize that everyone is prescribed a medication at some time during their life. When we learn that a drug manufacturer or medical products company has been singled out as putting corporate gains over patients, we launch a deliberate search to determine those who have responsibility for the damages suffered by victims. Sometimes, the problem with a drug or medical device simply lies in poor documentation of the known negative effects.
