Pharmaceutical drug companies manufacture and market hundreds of new drugs each year. Each pharmaceutical product is regulated and approved by the Food and Drug Administration(FDA) before it reaches the consumer, and every year over 200,000 people die from using defective pharmaceuticals. It is estimated that more than 50% of all the drugs marketed to the American consumer have negative or dangerous side effects, in spite of testing and FDA regulation.
Some drugs were still marketed by drug companies even after evidence of serious side effects or death had been noted. By law, drug manufacturers are strictly liable for an injury if the product they sell is defective or unreasonably dangerous.
A Pharmaceutical Manufacturer may be liable if:
- The product may be defective because of an error in the manufacturing process.
- Consumers are not warned of possible bad effects from the use of the product.
- The product has a design flaw that makes it dangerous.
The pharmaceutical manufacturer may be liable and can be sued for damages even if they were unaware of the danger. It does not matter how carefully the product was produced or labeled.
Many drug products have caused such widespread injury that class action suits or mass torts have been filed against the pharmaceutical drug companies. Some of these drugs include: Ketek, Trasylol, Ortho Evra and Fosamax.
Of additional concern are the dietary supplements which are becoming increasingly popular. The FDA requires that manufacturers assure that such supplements are safe before selling them, but there are no testing or approval requirements for over the counter supplements or drugs. Pharmaceutical Injury cases are covered by a statute of limitations, which means that you only have a certain period of time in which you can file a lawsuit.
