Savannah Drug Injury Attorneys
The drugs that doctors prescribe to their patients aren’t always safe for everyone. Some drugs carry inherent risks that their manufacturers fail to disclose, while others can be harmful if they’re prescribed in the wrong dosages or when combined with other medications.
It’s up to drug manufacturers to make sure their medications’ adverse effects are disclosed before they release a new drug. When they fail to do so, people like you can develop serious and even life-threatening complications.
If you or someone you love was hurt by a prescription drug, get in touch with the legal team at Owens & Mulherin Injury Lawyers to discuss your options. Our Savannah drug injury lawyers aren’t afraid to take on big pharmaceutical companies to help you get the compensation you deserve.

How Do Drug Injuries Occur?
Although prescription and over-the-counter medications can speed healing, reduce symptoms, and help patients recover from illnesses and injuries, they can also be dangerous. Some drugs that are still on the market are linked to serious complications, while others can be dangerous if your doctor doesn’t research your medical history and other medications before prescribing them.
Some of the most common causes of drug injuries include:
- Undisclosed or dangerous side effects
Virtually all drugs have side effects, and you and your healthcare providers may need to weigh the pros and cons before you use certain medications. However, some drugs are linked to disabling and even life-threatening complications. In many cases, the drug manufacturers don’t tell patients or doctors about those complications, which puts patients like you at risk.
- Off-label use
When you’re prescribed a medication, you trust that it’s the right one for your treatment plan. But some drug companies push their medications for unapproved, or off-label, uses. When this happens, the full extent of potential side effects may not be known.
- Pharmacy errors
Pharmacies fill prescriptions improperly, either with the wrong medication or wrong strength.
- Interactions with other medications
Harmful interactions can occur when prescription drugs are mixed with common over-the-counter drugs or supplements.
No matter what caused your drug-related injury, you can count on our legal team to pursue maximum compensation for you and your loved ones.
