There are often risks associated with taking prescription medications, but usually the benefits of taking prescription drugs outweigh the health risks associated with the drug. However, at times, certain prescription drugs cause a serious injury or side effect. Depending on the circumstances, the manufacturer may be held responsible for the injury caused by this drug, and a person may sue the pharmaceutical company to recover the expenses and damages associated with this injury.
Pharmaceutical companies have a duty by law to warn consumers of any dangers associated with their drugs. They also have a duty to test their drugs and manufacture them safely. If someone is injured as a result of ingesting a dangerous pharmaceutical drug, they may bring a products liability lawsuit against pharmaceutical company if it:
- Failed to Test the Drug Properly
- Failed to Warn the Consumer of the Risks Associated with the Drug
- Manufactured the Drug in an Unsafe Manner
