Understanding the pharmaceutical drug recall process

It is important that pharmaceutical drugs are safe for patients, and in the United States, they are required to be safe for patients. If it is determined that a drug poses a health threat to patients, it may be recalled. It is important for patients and consumers to understand why and how drugs can be pulled from the market and the legal protections they have if they have been harmed by a defective or dangerous drug.

What is the impact of a brain injury?

The brain is a fragile organ, and it could be harmed or damaged in a car accident. A range of brain functions can be disrupted by a brain injury, which can be caused by either closed or open head injury. Traumatic brain injuries occur when sudden trauma damages the brain. Closed head injuries can potentially result in more damage than an open head injury. Victims and family members of victims who have suffered a brain injury may wonder what the impact will be on their lives.
