Dangerous Drugs Lawyers
Camden, Sumter, Lexington, Newberry, Orangeburg, Columbia, Aiken SC.
We’re told the drugs we take are supposed to help us feel better by doctors and the pharmaceutical companies that manufacture them. However, the sad truth is that pharmaceutical manufacturers are more concerned with profits than the health of those who take their drugs, so the dangerous side effects that harm and kill are not necessarily first in their mind as they push for the pills to be marketed.
Healthcare professionals may push you to take drugs you do not need to take or may overlook the dangerous side effects. In either case, you or a loved one can be seriously injured by taking these dangerous drugs.
If you or a family member has been sickened from a dangerous drug in the Sumter or Columbia, South Carolina area, please contact the experienced defective drug lawyers in South Carolina at McWhirter, Bellinger & Associates, P.A.

Rather than treating what might be the cause of the condition, many doctors will throw a drug at it to see if it will solve the problem. Most of the time, the drug is exactly what is needed. But sometimes the drug’s side effects are more dangerous than what the drug is needed for.
