Prescription Drug Injuries

Prescription drugs, you need them to stay healthy or to heal. But when the medications you rely upon to get better have dangerous side effects, it could result in serious injury. The side effects listed on a pharmaceutical commercial are often longer than the list of benefits the drug provides. Sadly, medications with dangerous side effects make it to market and result in prescription drug injuries.

Statistics on dangerous drugs:

– In 2006, the CDC estimated that 350,000 Americans died of drug reactions or interactions.

– Two thirds of doctor’s visits result in the patient being given a drug prescription.

– In 2004, more people ages 45- 54 died as a result of unintentional drug overdoses than died in automobile accidents.
