Even FDA-Approved Medications Can Cause Serious Or Fatal Injuries
Large pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers must submit new products to rigorous testing for approval by the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In many cases, the tests can take years. However, FDA approval does not mean the company is no longer liable for damages if a drug or device causes an unforeseen injury or death.
Over the past several decades, dozens of FDA-approved products have been recalled due to dangerous and deadly side effects. These include prescribed and over-the-counter medications. Some of the most commonly used products include medications for weight loss, cholesterol medications and blood thinners.
Defective Drug Litigation Is Complex
Drug companies claim they do not share liability for the injuries and damages caused by their products. Not only will they point to rigorous FDA approval, but they will also claim that prescribing doctors should have been aware of the side effects and possible dangers to their patients.
Licensed pharmacists may also be blamed for misprescribing the drugs. Sorting through the medical and legal details requires the legal, professional and financial resources to keep moving forward and prepare the strongest, clearest case possible to help you recover the monetary damages you are entitled to.
