Approval process for drugs doesn’t always guarantee they’re safe
The Food and Drug Administration is the government body responsible for reviewing the clinical data presented by drug manufacturers and approving them for sale on the American market. Unfortunately, this review is not always complete. The FDA may also grant an expedited review of certain pharmaceutical products that are similar to existing drugs. This can allow unsafe products to escape the full scrutiny they deserve before being provided to sick patients.
Manufacturers who cut corners must be held liable for injuries
Drug manufacturers bear a responsibility to ensure that the drugs they create don’t harm the patients and customers to whom they’re provided. The hunger for profits, however, sometimes causes these corporations to rush a drug to market while ignoring warning signs of potential harm to patients caused by that harm. In some instances, drug companies don’t spend the time they should investigating whether a drug has long-term consequences that aren’t immediately clear from initial studies. Even more troublingly, there are numerous instances where drug manufacturers have been found to conceal test results from the FDA which would have revealed the dangers posed by a drug in order to obtain that all-important approval for public use.
Companies which have put your life and health at risk in this manner deserve to be held accountable by paying for the injuries they cause. Mobile personal injury lawyer Gary W. Fillingim understands the type of evidence needed to support a products liability claim against a negligent drug maker, and with his proven record as a trial attorney, he helps to get the compensation his clients deserve.
