Hold Manufacturers Liable For The Dangerous Drugs They Produce And Sell
Dangerous drug lawsuits can be complex and costly. When drug companies have obtained approval from the FDA to distribute drugs such as these, it can be very challenging to obtain compensation even in a case involving serious harm or death. A knowledgeable lawyer may succeed in your drug manufacturer lawsuit by showing that a manufacturer failed to report on adverse effects in test trials. He or she may be able to prove that a dangerous drug was improperly approved by the FDA.
What Causes Drug-Related Injuries?
Drug-related injuries can typically be traced back to one or more of the following causes:
- Prescription error by a physician
- Pharmacy error
- Pharmacist error
- Manufacturer negligence
- Retailing or marketing deficiencies
It can be very difficult to get a straight answer from a doctor or pharmacist when a medication causes harm. He or she may claim that an individual responded to a drug in an unexpected way, rather than investigating to discover the true cause of the injury. In the case of serious injury or death, you may wish to consult with a knowledgeable product liability attorney with ample experience in the area of dangerous drug claims.
