Holding Drug Companies Responsible For Defective Medication
Pharmaceutical products undergo rigorous research, development and testing before hitting the market. However, that does not mean they are always safe for every patient. It also does not mean that medications always act the way they are supposed to.
Dangerous and defective pharmaceutical products are a major source of injuries and death nationwide. According to a 2012 study conducted by researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issues new dangerous drug recalls nearly every single month. Drugs may become dangerous or defective by virtue of:
- Deadly side effects such as stroke, brain damage, heart attacks and birth defects
- Unforeseen drug interactions
- Contaminated medications
- Inadequate warnings about possible risk factors or contraindications
Product liability cases involving defective drugs are generally intricate and complex. They often require taking on large, national pharmaceutical companies, and they often take place in federal court. Thus, it is essential to choose an attorney with a proven track record of success.
