From surgical procures to diagnostic equipment to medications, the miracles of modern medicine knows few bounds. It is not infallible, however, and when difficulties do occur, there are sometimes devastating consequences as a result. Some of the worst of these consequences are associated with unsafe medications and drug recalls.
Despite the fact the United States government requires drugs to be extensively tested before they can go on the mass market, pharmaceutical companies sometimes discover problems with their products after they have been made available to the public. If you or someone you love has been injured by a recalled drug, you should speak with a knowledgeable Delaware injury lawyer at Morris James Personal Injury Group today.
Potential Pharmaceutical Defects
Approval by the Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, does not guarantee that a drug is perfectly safe from any hazards. A medication may have any number of defects, including:
- Surprising or dangerous reactions in combination with other drugs
- Unexpected side effects
- Defects in manufacturing such as contamination
Typically, recalls only occur once a large group of victims have suffered some kind of negative symptoms after taking a defective drug. Fortunately, the individuals that have suffered at the hands of a negligent pharmaceutical company may be entitled to financial compensation for their suffering.
If you or someone you care for has suffered from a pharmaceutical product that was later proved to be dangerous, it can be important to contact an experienced Delaware pharmaceutical liability attorney to learn more about your rights.
