Protecting Consumers Rights Against Defective Drugs and Medical Devices
Our pharmaceutical lawyers at Levy Konigsberg represent victims and their injuries against many of the nation’s largest companies who market and manufacture defective drugs and medical devices. If you or any member of your family have been seriously injured as a result of a dangerous drug or defective medical device, and have suffered from adverse effects, you may be entitled to compensation.
Pharmaceutical manufacturers do not always know that their products may trigger serious side effects and fatalities. Regrettably, sometimes they are aware that their drugs may elicit adverse reactions, but fail to disclose such information or remove their product from the market in a timely manner. Drug and medical device manufacturers have a duty to provide warnings about dangerous side effects of their products and not sell or market products that are unreasonably dangerous and defective.
What are the 3 Types of Drug-Related Product Liability Claims?
- Drugs that were manufactured incorrectly. Usually, these claims arise when the drug has been improperly manufactured or contaminated during production. There could be a variety of causes of this, including incorrect labeling on the bottle, adding the wrong ingredient to the pill during manufacturing, or something going wrong during the shipping process.
- Medications that have dangerous side effects. Claims for serious injury or illness may be filed when a drug has caused serious side effects. In many cases, a victim claims that the company knew about the side effects and failed to disclose them properly. Many of these cases involve long-established drugs. As time passes, it may become apparent that the drug has serious side effects.
- Falsely marketed pharmaceutical drugs. Those who have been harmed by a bad drug may file a claim if they believe that the pharmaceutical company failed to provide accurate directions or adequate warnings about how the drug should be used. This can range from not disclosing information about side effects to embellishing what the drug can do. It is often referred to as a "bad advice" claim, meaning that the drug manufacturer, the pharmacist, or even the doctor failed to provide proper instructions regarding the use of the drug.
