Types of Pharmaceutical Liability Claims

Dec 11, 2014

pharmaceutical liability

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is the federal agency responsible for ensuring that the drugs and medicines on the market are safe. Unfortunately, time and time again, dangerous drugs are prescribed to an unsuspecting public that then becomes ill.

When patients are injured by the very drugs that are supposed to heal them, lawyers can step into file pharmaceutical liability lawsuits in many cases.

In order for a drug manufacturer to be held liable, they must fail in their duties. Pharmaceutical companies are required to provide adequate warnings about harmful side effects. They must also list all potential side effects whether they are rare or not.

A competent product liability lawyer will have to conduct extensive research and employ medical experts in order to establish liability. Many product liability cases where a drug injures an individual become class action cases because thousands of patients may be affected.

Injuries do not always manifest themselves right away, and injuries like the development of cancer may occur many years after a drug was prescribed. It is important to speak with an attorney as soon as you suspect that a prescription has caused you injury.
