Dangerous Drugs and Product Liability

A claim against a manufacturer for injuries caused by a dangerous drug is known as a product liability claim. Product liability is an area of law in which manufacturers and distributors of products may be held liable for placing a defective product in the hands of consumers. A product may be defective in its design, manufacturing or marketing. Marketing defects include inadequate labeling, warnings or instructions for use.

Dangerous Drugs and Failure to Warn

A major problem associated with pharmaceutical drugs is the failure to warn consumers of potential complications and side effects. It is critical for consumers to be warned so they can make informed decisions about the medications they take. Without adequate warnings, consumers are left in the dark about the potential risks, dangers and side effects of a medication.

Common Injuries Caused by Dangerous Drugs

Dangerous drugs on the market have been found to cause a wide variety of injuries to the people who use them, including:

  • Bleeding and hemorrhage
  • Blood clots and deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
  • Stroke
  • Cancer
  • Heart failure
  • Birth defects
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Gastrointestinal issues
  • Physical abnormalities
  • Blindness

Dangerous Drugs and Wrongful Death

It is not uncommon for injuries caused by dangerous drugs and defective medical devices to result in the death of a patient. When dangerous drug injuries are fatal, the surviving family members of the deceased may have the right to file a wrongful death claim. This type of lawsuit allows the surviving family members to seek justice for their deceased loved one, to hold responsible parties accountable and to pursue compensation for the family’s future.
