Any time you take a prescription medication you are putting yourself at risk of the side effects. Fortunately, a large percentage of drugs that are approved by the FDA are safe for the majority of the population to use. However, there are a few drugs that somehow pass the FDA approval process but eventually prove to be dangerous—and even deadly—to those who use them.
If someone has experienced a severe side effect from a drug that was prescribed, he may benefit from joining an Illinois pharmaceutical class action lawsuit. A class action lawsuit is when a group of people come together as a group to bring a claim against a defendant. Pharmaceutical class action lawsuits have proven to be beneficial to the individuals in the group by allowing shared expenses for medical research and consultation with experts.
