Why Are Dangerous Drugs and Medical Devices Available?

Medications and medical devices may cause serious injuries even after being approved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA). A pharmaceutical company may be liable for injuries caused by medications or medical device if the company was negligent in:

  • Designing the drug. Pharmaceutical companies are expected to do the research and testing necessary to design a reasonably safe medication or medical device that does not result in serious unintended consequences.
  • Manufacturing the drug. Pharmaceutical companies are also expected to adhere to reasonable manufacturing practices so that mistakes and contamination do not impact the safety of the medication or medical device.
  • Marketing the drug. Pharmaceutical companies have a duty to warn patients about the side effects that are known or should have reasonably been known to them.

Any drug or device may result in an injury if the pharmaceutical company is negligent.

  • Cancer. Different kinds of cancer have been linked to different medications.

Any symptoms should be promptly reported to your doctor.
