Texas Lawyers That Sue Pharmaceutical Companies

At the Stephens Law Firm, Houston accident attorney Joe Stephens knows the appalling fact that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration recalls more than 1,700 over-the-counter and prescription drug recalls yearly. He understands the pain and grief felt by families who have lost loved ones because they took unsafe prescription drugs or over-the-counter medications.

If you’ve been injured or lost a family member because of defective or dangerous drugs, you need the Houston personal injury and wrongful death attorney that Texans rely on – Joe Stephens.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is charged with ensuring the safety of drugs used to treat both humans and animals. When the FDA determines that a drug might be defective or that it could cause harm, it recalls the product. Most recalls are voluntary, but their number is troubling for consumers. In the first two months of 2011, alone, the FDA lists 20 drug recalls. That’s an average of about one drug recall every three days. Why were these recalls issued?
