Pharmaceutical companies will occasionally rush a prescription or over-the-counter drug to market. Some of these drugs are later shown to be dangerous or defective, and people can be hurt or killed by using them. A few examples of drugs that have been subject to product liability claims includes, but are not limited to:
- Alendronic Acid or Alendronate Sodium (Fosamax)
- Atorvastatin (Lipitor)
- Dabigatran (Pradaxa)
- Drospirenone (Yaz)
- Duloxetine (Cymbalta)
- Exenatide (Byetta)
- Fluoxetine (Prozac)
- Paroxetine (Paxil)
- Pioglitazone (Actos)
- Sertraline (Zoloft)
People who take defective or dangerous drugs may suffer heart attacks or internal organ damage. In some cases, they may develop cancer or diabetes. Such side-effects can lead to overwhelming medical bills and may also prevent victims from being able to return to work.
If a pharmaceutical company continues to market and distribute a drug that it knows has safety issues, the company may be considered negligent for not comprehensively testing these products. The drugmaker can be liable to a victim for failing to provide warnings about the possible consequences of using its product.
The manufacturers of many drugs are multi-billion dollar corporations who are armed with extremely aggressive defense attorneys ready to minimize any payout to victims of defective drugs. In many cases, they will attempt to claim that a person’s injuries were the result of a pre-existing condition or cast significant doubt on whether an injury can be connected to use of the drug. In other cases, these companies could indeed offer a settlement, although it is rarely sufficient enough to cover the past and future medical needs of the victim.
