Why Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?
When the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issues a drug recall, it is directing that product be removed from the market. Recalls may be conducted on a firm’s own initiative, by FDA request, or by FDA order under statutory authority. However, as a result of greed, it is rare for manufacturers to remove a money-making product from the market on their own initiative. Therefore, when an innocent victim is injured, the protections of personal injury laws come into play. It is the laws of personal injury such as product liability against big money manufacturers that force justice and demand compensation for the injuries caused by the manufacturer’s negligence and greed.
Common Defective Drugs
All drug manufacturers are obligated to confirm that their drugs are safe to use, but sometimes, they fail to deliver on their promise, especially when it comes to noting side effects.
Common drugs that have been known to produce defects include:
- Ortho Evra
However, there are plenty more drugs out there that can cause defects. If you suspect you or a loved one is suffering due to a bad drug, it’s important to hire representation immediately to help you recover your health, as well as any other damages.
