What Constitutes a “Dangerous Drug”?

Pharmaceuticals are a multi-billion-dollar industry and sometimes a prescription or OTC drug gets rushed through the approval process because more importance is being put on profits than what may happen to people who use the dangerous or defective product. If a company knowingly or negligently produced, manufactured, marketed, distributed, and/or sold drugs that caused injuries or deaths then they should be held liable for all damages suffered.

A Defective Drug Causes More Damage than Benefits

Side effects of dangerous or defective drugs can be tragic and change you for the rest of your life. A drug that causes more harm than good through its dangerous effects on you physically and psychologically cannot possibly be considered “medicine”. We have represented clients in dangerous drugs and wrongful death cases involving harmful side effects such as:

  • Birth Defects
  • Cancer
  • Seizures
  • Loss of Cognitive Function
  • Organ Failure
  • Stroke
  • Brain Damage
  • Severe Pain
  • Negative Psychological Reactions
  • Suicide
  • Heart Attack

What Are My Rights If I Was Injured by a Dangerous Drug?

Dangerous drug cases can be very complicated so it is crucial that you consult with a medical malpractice attorney to go over your case in detail and see if there are grounds for filing a claim. If an investigation shows that wrongdoing and negligence resulted in your injuries then you could recover compensation for:

  • Medical Expenses
  • Future Medical Expenses
  • Loss of Wages
  • Loss of Earning Potential
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Mental Anguish
  • Reduced Enjoyment of Life
  • And more

Multiple Parties May Be Liable for Dangerous Drug Injuries

It seems like common sense that a drug developer and manufacturer would do as much testing and investigation as possible when it comes to producing a substance that could either improve someone’s health or kill them. Likewise, the U.S. agency responsible for certifying that a drug is safe should be trustworthy when it comes to the huge responsibility of protecting consumers. Unfortunately, this is not always the case—whether due to oversight, miscommunication, mistakes, negligence, or outright dishonesty.

Pharmaceutical companies have been found to rush testing, falsify testing results, or fail to warn of dangers. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has likewise allowed a drug to be approved that should have been rejected as being dangerous. Doctors, hospitals, pharmacies, pharmacists, distributors, and retailers may all be held liable for damages of a known dangerous drug.
