“Pharmaceutical liability” refers to the legal consequences a drug manufacturer may face if its products harm people. Cases involving injuries caused by drugs, medical devices and other pharmaceuticals are also included in products liability cases. Victims can bring claims against the manufacturer for negligence or failure to warn the public about potentially dangerous side effects.
Adverse side effects are the most common problems associated with prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications and any reaction that is life-threatening, permanent or even fatal may be subject to considerable compensation. If you believe that a drug, medical treatment, nutritional supplement or medical device has caused you to suffer adverse side effects or other severe injuries, call the attorneys of Ralph A.
