Each year, new drugs are designed and marketed to treat various conditions. Pharmaceutical companies pump millions of dollars into expensive marketing campaigns to appeal to both doctors and patients. Sometimes, however, certain medical devices and pharmaceuticals are rushed into the approval stage to begin earning a profit. If a manufacturer fails to perform sufficient research or adequate testing, dangerous side effects may be overlooked. When this happens, consumers can become harmed. In fact, severe and permanent injuries are not uncommon with dangerous drugs.
