When our doctor prescribes us medical drugs or when we buy them from the drugstores, we believe that the drugs will help us with our condition. We also trust that the companies who sell these drugs ensure that they are safe before they are sold to the public. Unfortunately, every year, a large number of people suffer serious side effects from unsafe medical drugs. If you or a loved one has been harmed due to unsafe medical drugs, you can sue the responsible parties.
Who are the responsible parties?
Manufacturers: Victims may sue the manufacturers of the unsafe medical drugs. However, it is important to note that manufacturers are typically large companies. They may compensate for the injuries but the majority of time they retain teams of high-priced lawyers to defend such cases.
Testing laboratories: The drugs that caused injuries may have worked its way through a series of tests on its way to the market. The laboratories that conducted the tests can be sued for the injuries even if they are independent from the manufacturers.
Medical sales representatives: Medical sales representatives often meets doctors and other members of the medical community to advertise about the latest drugs and make recommendations regarding their usage. These representatives may be held liable if they recommended the drugs that caused injuries.
Doctors: Doctors may be held liable for prescribing drugs that caused the injuries. They may also be held liable if they failed to warn about the potential side effects or provide adequate instructions regarding their usage.
Hospitals/clinics: Hospitals/clinics are part of the chain of distribution of drugs and hence they may be held liable for the injuries.
Pharmacies: When victims suffer injuries due to unsafe medical drugs bought from pharmacies, they may be held liable. Pharmacies are the final point in the chain of distribution of drugs.
