Few people think that the medicine prescribed by their doctor will do more harm than good. Unfortunately, there are hundreds of injury cases every year regarding medicines and drugs prescribed by doctors.
While the U.S. Food and Drug Administration was created to monitor and ensure that people are not injured by harmful ingredients or misleading claims made by drug manufacturers, dangerous drugs still manage to find a place on store shelves.
WHAT MAKES A DRUG OR MEDICINE DANGEROUS?
A medicine may be considered defective or dangerous because of:
- Incorrect or misleading labels: A label may claim that a medicine or supplement performs a certain function that it does not. Additionally, labels may neglect to warn consumers of certain side effects or fail to warn about possible adverse drug interactions.
- Poor manufacturing quality: A pill or other pharmaceutical products may have been manufactured with poor-quality or even dangerous ingredients or materials.
- Flawed package design: A faulty package can cause a product to deteriorate or spoil, causing injury to the consumer. Additionally, flawed packaging, such as faulty child-proof caps, can cause injury to children and others.
Negligent pharmaceutical and medical manufacturers should be held liable for the damages that their products cause people. These damages may not only cause harm physically, but can take a toll financially as well.
