Negligent Drug Manufacturers Should Be Held Accountable
When you buy a new medication, whether it’s handed to you by a pharmacist or taken directly from a supermarket’s shelf, you expect it to have some degree of a therapeutic effect. It’s disappointing to take a new medication and not get the results you want, but it’s downright devastating to take a medication and develop new symptoms or complications.
Unfortunately, that’s the reality for many Americans every year. Like all products, drugs have the potential to cause harm to the people who take them. That’s because not all medications are manufactured in a safe manner using safe ingredients. In addition, some drugs are mislabeled, resulting in patients taking drugs with dosages that are too high or too low for their health conditions. Other drugs may be rushed to market without being properly tested.
There are many reasons that drugs can be considered dangerous, and those reasons often fall back on the manufacturers. But because pharmaceutical companies are multi-billion-dollar enterprises, their victims often feel helpless when it comes to getting compensation.
