Damages Caused by Dangerous and Defective Pharmaceutical Drugs

The use of a dangerous or defective medication can cause significant harm to a person who is already living with a medical condition. Not only will the patient not receive effective treatment for their condition, they can also develop additional illness and injury.

To combat the effects of taking a defective or dangerous drug, further medical care is often necessary. Through a personal injury claim, injury victims and their families can receive compensation for medical expenses.

Other financial damages are compensable through a personal injury claim as well. The injuries caused by using a dangerous or defective drug may leave a person unable to work, in which case, the victim can be compensated for lost wages.

An injury victim may also be able to recover compensation for travel expenses, the expense of services needed while injured, and other injury-related costs.

Non-economic damages are another significant “expense” that can result from the use of dangerous and defective pharmaceutical drugs. When a person is injured, the stress of the situation can take its toll. For this reason, even damages that do not have a monetary value can be compensated through a legal claim.

In cases of fatal defective and dangerous drug injuries, the victim’s family may be able to recover compensation for remaining medical bills, funeral and burial expenses, and non-economic damages.

Who is Liable for Defective Drug Injuries?

The development, release, and use of a defective and dangerous drug may be the fault of many different parties. Typically, the corporation that created and manufactured the drug is to blame and will be held liable in a lawsuit. The pharmaceutical company is ultimately responsible for ensuring a drug is safe, so they are generally at fault if a medication is defective or dangerous.

However, a pharmaceutical company may not be the only party that is liable for patient injuries. Defects can also be the result of negligence on the behalf of testing companies, regulatory agencies, marketing companies, and third-party manufacturers who are involved in the development and sale of medication. In some cases, a doctor may be at fault for prescribing a drug that they know is dangerous to a patient.
