What Makes Drugs “Defective?”

There are certain side effects associated with any pharmaceutical drug. However, drug companies still have a responsibility to keep consumers reasonably safe. This means including proper safety warnings and labeling of potential side effects, as well as not manufacturing pharmaceuticals that pose an unreasonable risk to consumers when used as intended.

A drug may be considered defective for one or more of the following reasons:

  • A manufacturer failed to conduct sufficient tests to be able to verify that a product was safe for consumption.
  • Marketers pushed the use of off-label uses of a drug without adequate assurances of safety.
  • A manufacturer or marketer suppressed contraindications (a specific situation in which a drug should not be used), such as injuries or fatalities caused by a prescription drug during testing.
  • A manufacturer failed to warn users of known risks or dangerous side effects.

Successful prosecution of defective drug claims requires in-depth medical knowledge and legal experience. Peoria defective drug lawyer Joel E. Brown has devoted years of concerted effort to the specific challenges of these types of complex cases. If you have been harmed after a drug or medical device was prescribed, delivered, and/or administered to you as an outpatient or in a hospital, bring your story to Attorney Brown's attention. He can evaluate the facts of your case and make recommendations with no further obligation.

Drugs that Harm Unborn Children: Zofran Litigation

Drug product liability cases often include a secondary injury to an unborn child when hazardous medications are prescribed to a pregnant mother. Zofran litigation allows parents to seek recovery after the drug has harmed a child in utero. Request a consultation with our firm to discuss your options if your child has a heart defect or another birth defect and you took Zofran as prescribed during pregnancy.
