What are Dangerous Drugs?

Manufacturers of medications have a responsibility to properly research and test each product prior to releasing them for consumer use. If you have taken a medication and you suffered from life-threatening complications, adverse side effects or you have lost a loved one due to an allegedly defective drug, you may be able to hold the manufacturer responsible for possible negligence and seek compensation for your damages.

A dangerous drug is any form of medication, whether prescribed or obtained over-the-counter, that is believed to have caused complications, injuries, death and adverse side effects. Although the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is responsible for testing each medication prior to approving the product, the agency has allegedly come under fire by consumers for succumbing under manufacturer pressure to approve products that have not yet been adequately tested.

The FDA is also often unable to catch each and every side effect associated with every product prior to its release on the market. This is why the adverse event reporting system exists – so that patients may inform the FDA of any adverse side effects or complications that they experienced while taking a particular product. Should the FDA receive several reports of a specific drug, it may decide to further investigate the product by conducting research or clinical trials and reach its own conclusion about its safety and efficacy.

Why Choose a California Dangerous Drug Attorney?

Those who have been injured due to a defective drug may consider working with a California defective drug lawyer to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer to hold them responsible for their conditions. Although some may consider pursuing claims on their own, doing so is often not advisable as proving a drug is defective can often be difficult, and most manufacturers are large corporations and have more resources than the average consumer. For this reason, it is important to work with a California defective drug lawyer who has experience in pursuing claims against drug makers and who can help to ensure that your legal rights are protected.

How a California Dangerous Drug Attorney Can Help

Drug makers have a duty to provide safe products. If there are risks of harm associated with their products, they also must provide adequate warnings. If a drug maker fails to fulfill this duty, it could be held liable in lawsuits for injuries that may result.

People injured by bad drugs may be eligible to recover money for:

  • Medical Expenses
  • Lost Wages
  • Pain and Suffering

The families of those who have died may be eligible to recover money for funeral expenses and the pain that comes with losing a loved one.
