Attorneys at Swigart Law Group represent their clients in cases against large and small pharmaceutical companies that profit by selling drugs they know to be defective or unsafe.
When you purchase a prescription or over-the-counter medication you expect it to be effective and helpful and not harmful to your health. And yet, dozens of drugs on the market contain dangerous compounds and may cause you harm.
Drug Companies May Be Responsible for Your Injury.
Drug manufacturers are responsible to authorize the appropriate tests before submitting the drug for approval by the Food and Drug Administration. It is also their responsibility to warn consumers of potential side effects.
Doctors and pharmacists also may be responsible for an injury caused by a drug. It is doctor’s responsibility to prescribe the best medication for the patient’s condition. And pharmacists must issue the accurate dosage of the correct medication.
Product liability laws hold the manufacturers, wholesalers, and distributors responsible for developing and dispensing defective drugs.
Defective drug issues may relate to:
- recalled drugs,
- drugs that were not adequately tested for all of their potential side effects,
- manufacturing errors,
- dosage mistakes,
- inadequate warnings and mislabeling.
