Drug Injury Lawsuits
Every day, Americans are injured by side effects of dangerous drugs. For many, their only recourse is to file lawsuits against the companies that sell the products.
Drug injury legal compensation cases involve personal injury or wrongful death claims filed on behalf of people who, unfortunately, experienced a serious side effect, had an adverse drug reaction, or died from their use of a prescription medication. When you're sick and injured, or taking care of a family member who is ill, you trust doctors to make the right decisions to help you or your loved one get better. However, some medications prescribed by doctors have ingredients that may cause additional health problems or drug side effects.
Since 2000, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved an average of 24 drugs a year, including many that pose health risks and serious long-term side effects. The pharmaceutical industry makes sky-high profits that allow them to move quickly from one dangerous drug to the next. Due to the massive size of the pharmaceutical industry and the amount of money invested in new medications, drugs may enter the marketplace without adequate testing, resulting in serious injury or death for the user. When personal injury is sustained due to pharmaceutical drugs, whether prescription or over-the-counter, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your damages.
Liability in Pharmaceutical Injury Lawsuits
Prescription drugs can save lives, but they can also come with unwanted side effects. Pharmaceutical injuries occur when a patient takes a defective drug, is instructed to take an improper dosage, is not properly warned about the drug's possible side effects, or is prescribed the wrong drug by his physician.
The following parties may be held accountable for negligence in pharmaceutical injury cases:
If a drug company fails or attempts to hide a drug's dangerous side effects, or inadequate research and testing was done on the drug, this may be grounds for a defective products lawsuit.
If a physician prescribed a drug to a patient that others in their profession would not have, this may be grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit
If a prescription was filled with the wrong medication or dosage, this may be grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit
Time Limits to File Drug Injury Lawsuits
Pharmaceutical injury cases must be filed within a certain time frame, which varies state by state.
