Fort Lauderdale Defective Drug Attorney
Assisting victims suffering from dangerous prescriptions and over-the-counter medications
When we take a prescription drug or over-the-counter medication, we expect it to alleviate our symptoms, protect us from disease and make us feel better in general. However, some defective or dangerous drugs can instead cause serious harm, such as birth defects, heart failure or stroke, blood clots, pulmonary embolism and other serious injuries or even death.
Whether you were injured by a headache medicine, a birth control drug, an antibiotic or any other type of medication, you may be able to recover compensation from the drug manufacturer for the harm you have suffered. At Boone and Davis, PA, our Fort Lauderdale defective drug attorneys use their more than 30 years of experience to hold manufacturers liable for dangerous and defective medications released into use by consumers.
Manufacturer liability for dangerous and defective drugs
All manufacturers ― no matter what they produce ― have a duty to ensure that their products are reasonably safe for use by consumers. This duty includes manufacturers of pharmaceutical drugs. Pharmaceutical manufacturers may be held liable for injuries caused by their defective or dangerous drugs, such as:
- Drugs that contain manufacturing defects, including improper ingredients, bottling errors, shipping errors, labeling errors, lack of sterility and other errors made during the manufacturing process
- Drugs that contain defective designs, including dangerous side effects due to the failure to conduct tests and the failure to release the results of drug studies
- Drugs that are unsafe due to inadequate instructions or warnings or improper marketing
