There are a wide range of dangerous prescription drugs that are on the market today. They help people recover from different types of conditions and illnesses. However, there are also different types of prescription drugs that have had dangerous or no effects on people, largely due to inadequate testing. While it is no secret that all types of prescription drugs have some risks associated with them, the risks are much higher when they are not well researched or prescribed by someone who lacks medical knowledge and authority. If you or a loved one has taken a dangerous prescription drug that caused some type of illness or personal injury, it is important for you to contact an attorney from Atkins & Markoff as soon as possible. Our team of lawyers are well-equipped to provide you with aggressive representation and help ensure you receive the compensation you deserve. Whether you have been prescribed a dangerous prescription drug by an unauthorized medical professional or if your doctor or pharmacy tech failed to properly prescribe your medication, you may be able to take legal action.
