You expect your prescribed medicine to be safe and effective. When medicine hurts instead of heals, you deserve answers and compensation. Bad drugs can cause serious side effects that can leave you and your family with medical debt, lost wages and continued pain and suffering. In some cases, defective drugs have caused the deaths of their consumers.
The pharmaceutical industry makes billions of dollars each year. Spending on prescription drugs in the United States alone is expected to reach $610 billion by 2021. It is important that drug companies not be allowed to profit off of the pain and suffering of their own consumers. Filing a bad drug lawsuit can help hold drug companies accountable and encourage rigorous testing of new drugs before they are put on the market.
Pharmaceutical companies have a duty to make sure that the drugs they put on the market are safe for consumer use. When they fail in this duty, the law allows consumers to seek compensation under theories of products liability.
Most lawsuits either argue that the medicine had a defective design or that drug companies failed to warn consumers of the side effects of a drug. Defective design arguments say that the drug is inherently dangerous and in some cases show that the drug company could have adopted a safer alternative design. Failure to warn arguments say that companies did not adequately inform patients of the side effects of taking a drug.
