Dangerous and defective drug lawsuits and other defective drug product liability lawsuits are becoming more common as drug companies and the pharmaceutical industry continue to produce, market, and sell drugs that they know cause devastating health problems. Common drug lawsuits include:
Medications can be extremely beneficial; however, when they are used incorrectly, marketed for the wrong purpose, or have hidden side effects, these drugs can cause serious problems and catastrophic damages. Additionally, everyone in the production and distribution lines has a stake in disproving that the medication is defective or dangerous.
As the research and development of medications continues to improve in our modern society, pharmaceutical companies have become extremely rich and powerful. When advanced research shows that a particular drug is unsafe or has dangerous side effects, problems arise due to the substantial costs involved in the development of a new drug. In addition to the costs involved, many peoples' jobs depend on the success of the drug. In light of this, many pharmaceutical companies attempt to bury this negative research and market the drug regardless of the damages that it may cause. In doing so, these drug companies can cause devastating health problems and death to those that are given the drug.
Even when a dangerous medication has caused serious damages, it can be extremely difficult to prove that a medication is defective. All of the defective medication claims have aspects of science and medicine. Our legal team and medical experts must fight through industry produced research and discover the adverse literature to support your case.
