When you are diagnosed with an illness, or having recently suffered from a serious injury, we are fortunate to live in a generation where medications to ease our symptoms are in abundance. However, unfortunate circumstances can occur, and the medicine that was engineered to heal you has harmed you instead. The public considers this a ‘bad drug,’ and authorities must address it properly.
We describe a ‘bad drug’ as any medication that causes a personal injury, or complications, or can also result in death. It is the responsibility of the manufacturers to inform their consumers about both the benefits and side effects from their drugs. The packaging needs to clearly display this information using clear and concise language. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible for overseeing all drug information pertaining to patient safety. However, the FDA decides if a drug is safe based on if the benefits outweigh the risks. The inconsistency can occur because various standards define ineffectiveness and danger differently.
If you find yourself as the victim of a bad drug, your first step is to seek medical help immediately. After receiving treatment, you should contact an injury lawyer to assess your case, which may potentially initiate the process of filing a lawsuit in your defense. In this case, bad drug lawsuits fall under the category of injury lawsuits. It can be a long and grueling process, but it is important to see it through.
A drug taken under the correct circumstances needs to always be safe. The Spector Injury & Accident Lawyers do not tolerate any sort of negligence from drug manufacturing that doesn’t provide their patients with the proper information for the sake of their health and safety. Drug manufacturers have lawyers trained to defend their clients from any justified claims against them.
