The year may be drawing to a close, but the ramifications of many dangerous drugs that came to light in 2011 will continue to linger as victims cope with the complications associated with pharmaceuticals they rightly thought were safe.
The Mobile, Alabama, product liability attorneys at Long & Long are actively investigating claims from those who may have suffered harm as a result of taking dangerous prescription drugs, including a number of medications listed among the top consumer pharmaceutical topics of 2011 by LawyersandSettlements.com, the web-based publication of Online Legal Media.
Although most of the drugs on the list have been available for years, the side-effects of many of the drugs have only recently become evident. Among the most dangerous pharmaceuticals of 2011 are:
- Actos – Linked to bladder cancer, heart problems and rhabdomyolysis
- Fosamax – Linked to bone fractures and esophageal cancer
- Yasmin and YAZ – Associated with gall bladder disease, blood clots, pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis
The manufacturers of these drugs all face pending lawsuits. While 2012 will sadly bring a new list of health complications related to prescription pharmaceuticals, the dedicated Alabama defective drug attorneys at Long & Long will continue to fight for justice and fair compensation for victims of Actos, Fosamax, Yasmin, YAZ and other hazardous medications whose risks outweigh their benefits and jeopardize the lives of their users.
