Virtually every year thousands of patients suffer injury and even death as a result of prescription medications. Whether it is a previously unreported side effect of a drug, a serious adverse reaction to a drug, the interaction between two drugs causing injury, or a medication error, prescription drugs can be dangerous and even fatal. Virtually every year, prescription drugs are recalled by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) after users are injured.
