Common Dangers of Defective Pharmaceutical Products
Drug manufacturers are responsible to their consumers to provide safe products that come with ample warnings when side effects may occur. If these companies don’t take the time to properly package, inspect, and test their pharmaceutical products, they may seriously endanger patients and customers needing these treatments and medical care. Unfortunately, there are far too many ways negligent manufacturers allow defective pharmaceutical products to cause serious harm to innocent consumers. Call us if you suspect you’ve been injured due to defective pharmaceutical products.
Pharmaceutical Product Hazards
Defective drugs can pose a grave risk for many needing medical help. Some of the most common hazards of defective pharmaceutical products that manufacturers and producers can be held liable for include:
- A drug caused unlisted and dangerous side effects
- A drug’s instructions weren’t properly or accurately included
- The drug wasn’t properly recalled by the manufacturer when necessary
- The packaging or storage of the drug caused mold or other health hazards to taint the product
A drug manufacturer should avoid these kinds of health concerns at all costs. If a manufacturer doesn’t take the necessary steps to prevent these issues from arising due to their defective pharmaceutical products, they may be held responsible through legal action.
