Society today usually regards prescription drugs as safe, but fail to recognize the severity of the side effects that come with using prescription medication. The impact of prescription drugs on a person’s life seems to be ubiquitous lately, displayed in various media’s such as televisions, radios and magazine.

Most television and radio ads suggest that prescription medication has little to no side effects. The truth is, television and radio ads know the problems surrounding the prescription drug industry but ignore them to increase their revenue. Most forms of media are paid millions of dollars to advertise their products, so it would not be profitable for them to publicize the many defects that a prescription drug may contain. The only indication of the defectiveness of many prescription drugs in these television ads is a quick blurb and fine print at the bottom of the screen which is barely readable. These ads do not disclose the information that there may be thousands of lawsuits pending based on the dangerous effects of these drugs.

Our experienced and reliable attorneys will use their profound efforts and proficiencies to acquire the compensation that you deserve.

The drug industries and manufacturers have been ridiculed for speeding up production of new drugs in order to rapidly produce unsafe medications to be placed within the market without adequate testing to ensure that these drugs are harmless. If you or a loved one has been affected by the use of a defective medication, call Ketover and Associate today.

Many prescription and nonprescription drugs are meant to be beneficial to people who are afflicted with ailments and diseases.
