Effexor Lawsuit Attorney

Helping Victims Nationwide

Modern medicine relies on the knowledge of physicians and the expertise of pharmaceutical companies when treating patients. Medications can improve the quality of life and in many instances prolong or save the lives of those with catastrophic illnesses. The medical community and their patients expect pharmaceutical manufacturers to provide safe, effective products to treat physical and mental disorders. They place their trust in these companies and rely on them to comply with federal regulations regarding safety for all drugs. When negligence occurs and this trust is broken, serious injury or death can result. It is a drug manufacturer’s responsibility to ensure that all their products are safe for human consumption and to recall those that are not. Several widely used prescription drugs have been recalled because they pose a risk to patients. One of these is Effexor, a popular antidepressant.

Effexor is the brand name for Venlafaxine. It is in the class of drugs known as serotonin-neorepinephrine reuptake inhibitors. It is manufactured and marketed by Pfizer, a well-known and respected pharmaceutical company. Wyeth was the original manufacturer and marketer. It is used primarily to treat symptoms of depression, but is also used in the treatment of anxiety, social, and panic disorders. It is believed that it works by regulating the levels of noradrenaline and serotonin, neurotransmitters in the brain. Effexor received approval from the FDA in 1997 and is commonly prescribed because of its positive effects on the quality of life of those suffering from serious depression.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
