What are the Types of Pharmaceutical Product Defect Claims?
Defective drugs can be prescribed medications, over-the-counter medicines, or drugs that are taken under a hospital or a doctor’s care. While these medications are required to be adequately tested before making them available to the public, drug companies may rush to get these drugs to market. Pharmaceutical companies may fail to warn users about the dangers associated with their products. The three categories of pharmaceutical product defects claims are:
- Defective Drugs — These types of claims involve pharmaceutical drugs that have been improperly manufactured or tested, causing a defect in the product. This could be a result of an error at the manufacturing site or on the part of the pharmacy where the prescription was filled or a mistake on the product labeling.
- Drugs with Dangerous Side Effects — Even though a drug may be correctly manufactured, certain medications may have serious side effects that result in injury. These claims may involve drugs that were put on the market before they were known to cause side effects or illness. Some examples include antidepressants, diabetics medications, certain types of birth control, or painkillers.
- Improper Marketing of Drugs — These types of claims involve injuries caused by the drug manufacturer’s failure to provide adequate warning regarding the side effects of a drug. It may also include the failure on the part of a doctor, pharmacists, or another medical provider to provide accurate instructions on the safe use of a drug.
It is possible that you could be involved in a class-action lawsuit if the defective drug harmed many people. Spiros Law, P.C. can advise you on your options.
