The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has the responsibility for reviewing and investigating pharmaceutical drugs such as Ortho Evra before they are available to the general public through prescriptions or over-the-counter (OTC). However, in the past decade there have been numerous incidences that have revealed that drug manufacturers released a drug and even falsified or did not disclose concerns about possible side effects that came up in the clinical trials and tests required for FDA approval. It has been estimated that 100,000 people die in the U.S. every year from taking a prescription drug that a doctor prescribed to them such as Ortho Evra. Even the Journal of the American Medical Association had a recent article estimating that prescription drugs may be the 4th leading cause of death in the U.S. today. In fact, there is more likely a higher risk of being injured by a prescription drug than being seriously injured in an auto accident, murdered, killed in a commercial air crash, or struck by lightning.

Vioxx®, manufactured by Merck, has been the most recent example of some of the largest tort settlements in history. Ephedra, Accutane, Celebrex, Ortho Evra, and acetaminophen are other defective drugs that have recently been in the news for causing serious injury or death as a result of their use. Tylenol®, a brand name for acetaminophen, has recently been shown to cause severe liver damage when taken over an extended period of time in excessive doses.

Although monetary compensation may be awarded by a jury to a person injured or killed as the result of taking a prescription or OTC drug, the circumstances of the case must show that the manufacturer knowingly did not disclose the possible dangerous side effects. You should speak with an experienced defective drug lawyer to help you determine if you are a victim of the pharmaceutical industry. Over 65,000 lawsuits have been filed against the pharmaceutical industry since 2000, more than any other industry, but not every one of those lawsuits will find in favor of the plaintiffs or victims.
