Ohio Wrongful Death Lawyers Handling Dangerous Prescription Drug Cases

Clark, Perdue and List Dangerous Prescription Drug CasesRecent studies indicate that more than 100,000 Americans die each year as a result of “adverse drug events.” These are not deaths from overdoses or incorrect prescriptions, rather these wrongful deaths are caused from side effects from properly prescribed medications that are used as directed. To put this staggering number in perspective, 100,000 deaths is more than four times the number of Americans who die each year in traffic accidents. It is the equivalent of having five fully loaded 747 jumbo jets crash each week – one person dying on average every 5 minutes. Because “adverse drug events” are often unreported, many experts believe the actual number of yearly deaths attributed to prescription medications could be as high as 200,000.

Over 65 percent of Americans take at least one prescription drug. Sales of prescription drugs in the United States exceed $250 billion each year. Dangerous prescription drugs could have serious, sometimes fatal, consequences in any family.
