Manufacturers of dangerous drugs and supplements could be held liable for injuries and deaths resulting from their product or the side effects of their product. Companies have a duty to the general public to produce safe products. They must design, test, manufacture, and package a product to the best of their ability for the safety of their customers. Proving drug manufacturer responsibility for a defective product is complicated and costly.
Why are so many dangerous drugs being prescribed?
Drug manufacturers have place increased pressure of he Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for faster approvals and a less strict testing process. They argue lives can be saved with less regulation. The FDA itself admits not all serious adverse drug reactions are documented by the time a drug is marketed. The safety profile for new drugs that come on the market is not totally defined when the drug hits the market. The most comprehensive testing is on the unknown patients who have placed their trust in the company’s promises.
In the competitive business that is rug manufacturing, some companies have gone so far as to purposefully hide evidence from the FDA in order to a get a drug approved. When companies place profits before safety, the may be responsible for injuries and death resulting from their product. Proving responsibility against a powerful company who already has FDA approval is a task for only a few skilled law firms.
