Common Dangers of Defective Pharmaceutical Products
Drug manufacturers have a responsibility to their consumers to provide safe products that come with ample warnings in cases 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 in need of these treatments and medical care. Unfortunately, there are far too many ways in which negligent manufacturers allow defective pharmaceutical products to cause serious harm to innocent consumers.
Pharmaceutical Product Hazards
Defective pharmaceutical products can pose a particularly grave risk for many people in need of 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
These kinds of health concerns should be avoided by a drug manufacturer 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.
