Consumers of prescription and over-the-counter drugs are making their purchases with the reasonable assumption that the products they consume will function as intended without causing significant adverse effects or outright harm. Thanks to the FDA, this is usually the case, as drugs are subjected to fairly rigorous screening processes before they are approved to be sold on the US market. Unfortunately, dangerous drugs can sometimes fail to be identified in screening protocols, resulting in a harmful product making its way to our pharmacies and homes.
Only once the drug has caused significant harm to enough people will a recall be issued, at which point the damage has already been done. If you or a loved one has been harmed by a defective pharmaceutical product, let the skilled Kankakee drug recall attorneys of Spiros Law, P.C., help you secure the compensation you deserve.

Reasons for a Recall
The primary interest of a pharmaceutical company will always be making a profit, which at times means that unsafe products will be released into the market only to be withdrawn once enough complaints have been filed about the drug’s dangerous properties. Some of the more common reasons for a drug recall are:
- Significant side effects which are not properly identified on the label
- The drug worsening the condition it is meant to improve
- Development of unexpected and inexplicable simultaneous conditions
- Numerous cases of patient death
Whenever a drug causes harm to those who use it, the rights of the consumer have been abused. Taking legal action is the best way to ensure that the negligent manufacturer is held responsible.
