Who really has your best interests in mind these days? Often, pharmaceutical giants have their eyes on profits instead of your health and well-being. This means drugs can be put on the market and then recalled after patients suffer serious and sometimes fatal side effects.
The drug injury lawyers at Lundy Law represent clients throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. We work hard to ease the emotional, mental, and financial strain that drug injuries have on individuals and their families.

What can I do to protect myself from a drug injury?
The number of Americans treated in hospitals for problems related to medication errors has surged in recent years. There are a few precautions you can take to avoid becoming part of this disturbing trend.
- Carefully read all of the labels associated with your medicine.Compare medication labels to make sure you’re not getting the same active ingredient twice, which can lead to overdose or illness.
- Remind your doctor.Don’t assume your doctor is aware of what medications you are already taking. Be sure to communicate with healthcare professionals about your prescriptions.
- Stay informed about recalls.The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is a terrific source for information about drugs that have been removed from the market.
- Ask questions.When you are prescribed a new medication, ask your doctor or pharmacist how the medication should be taken and what drug interactions to look out for. Ask if the drug has any safety concerns and if there are safer options available.
