Cincinnati pharmaceutical injury attorney and Ohio Product Safety Lawyer reviews defective drug recalls nationwide and represents plaintiffs nationwide
Each year, hundreds of new drugs and dietary supplements are sold to the American public with approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Some drug companies, however, fail to properly test their products before they are prescribed by doctors and consumed by patients over-the-counter.
When drug companies are negligent in releasing contaminated or dangerous products and fail to warn doctors and patients, they may be held liable by injured plaintiffs and your Ohio product safety lawyer in product liability lawsuits. Settlements can be sought and compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering and long-term disability can be sizable.
Contaminated and unsafe drugs end up leading to severe side effects and complications that drug companies may or may not have known about, resulting in warnings and product recalls. Consumers end up injured or ill and pharmaceutical companies may be liable for subsequent damages and personal injury and product liability lawsuits filed by an Ohio product safety lawyer.
Joe Lyon is an experienced Cincinnati pharmaceutical recall attorney and Ohio product safety lawyer represents injured plaintiffs nationwide in a wide variety of toxic tort and drug injury lawsuits.
Drug and medication recalls are far from rare, and the FDA announces hundreds of pharmaceutical recalls each year due to contamination, health risks, improper packaging, failures to warn consumers of injury, cancer risks, allergen concerns, and other defects.
Following preventable drug injuries in which the substance was recalled and known to be defective, victims and their families can hire an experienced Ohio product safety lawyer to investigate and file injury claims. Negligent physicians and drug manufacturers may be liable for related injuries and injured plaintiffs are encouraged to hold negligent parties accountable. Plaintiffs may be eligible for large settlements and compensation for defective drug treatment, medical expenses, and pain and suffering.
Given the large reach of pharmaceutical marketing practices and budgets, drugs can affect the health and lives of thousands of patients in both good and bad ways. Pharmaceutical litigation is a necessary balance to contain the large marketing budgets and influence of pharmaceutical companies.
Defective Pharmaceutical Products present an extremely dangerous public health risk and often lead to large scale and complex pharmaceutical litigation. Pharmaceutical litigation is a deterrent against corporations cutting corners and a means to compensate those who have been unjustly harmed by a dangerous product.
Most experts would agree that the FDA is not designed nor does it have the resources to monitor every product through the post approval process once it has been granted clearance. Very simply, the volume of drugs that are presented for review is too demanding, so, while the FDA is a good initial step in the process, the responsibility of providing safe and effective pharmaceutical companies remains on the companies that profit from the sales.
While the pharmaceutical companies have yielded more influence over the review process, ultimately, the law is very clear that it is the company’s responsibility to run the appropriate tests, track the data, and to identify the side effects and then warn consumers and physicians adequately and in a timely manner. Government approval should not be a shield for liability.
