Sources of Negligence in Pharmaceutical Injuries

The first step in a pharmaceutical injury case is a thorough investigation of all medical records by one of our medical experts to determine what went wrong. The responsibility for a dangerous drug can arise from one or more parties involved in the drug’s consumption from development, manufacture, distribution, and prescription. Some of the common sources of negligence for pharmaceutical injuries include:

  • Design Defects
  • Manufacturing Defects
  • Inadequate Testing
  • Inadequate Labeling or Failure to Warn
  • Misrepresentation in Marketing
  • Supply Chain Issues / Contamination

Responsibilities of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) sets strict standards and practices for drug manufacturers. Pharmaceutical manufacturers are required to test the effectiveness and safety of the drugs they produce. These manufacturers also have a duty to label products per FDA regulations and to warn you about known side effects. Our attorneys thoroughly investigate your case to uncover compliance lapses by pharmaceutical companies.
