These claims involve injuries caused by pharmaceutical drugs that have been manufactured improperly or tainted in some way. The defect can occur when the drug is manufactured, at the pharmacy where the drug is bottled, when the drug is labeled, or any other situation in which an error is made before the victim received the drug.
These claims involve injuries caused by pharmaceutical drugs that have serious side effects that cause injury, despite being manufactured properly. In some cases, the manufacturer knew of the dangers but concealed them; in others, the drug was on the market for a while before it is discovered that the drug caused or increased the risk of certain injuries, such as heart attacks.
These claims involve injuries caused by drugs that have incorrect or incomplete marketing. The marketing of a drug refers to the instructions, warnings, and recommendations for the product. Victims may be able to take legal action if they were injured because of a failure to provide adequate instructions about the safe use of the drug or the failure to provide accurate and complete warnings about possible dangerous side effects of the drug.
