While a sloppy pharmacy in a hospital, clinic or store may mis-fill a prescription or make other errors, not all pharmaceutical injuries arise from a dispenser’s malpractice. Sometimes a pharmaceutical product can be defective, improperly designed or tested, or unreasonably dangerous without adequate warnings for some patients. We all remember news stories about government recalls and private lawsuits over tragic cases where, for instance, anti-depressant drugs prompted patient suicides, or hemophilia medicines caused patients to develop AIDS.
Drug makers may also fail to disclose known risks of their products, such as side effects or dangerous interactions between a new drug and other drugs a patient is already taking. In some cases, pharmaceutical companies have even been discovered promoting an existing product to health care providers, urging them to prescribe it for other conditions for which it has not received government approval.
Even some over-the-counter products, like vitamins and supplements, can raise serious problems for users. Similarly, a wide range of medical devices -- joint replacements, heart pacemakers and stents, birth control products, and many more –may also be defective or unreasonably dangerous.Free Consultation: Experienced New York City Pharmaceutical Injury Attorney
