If you were injured by a defective drug, continue reading to see how a proficient Broward County product liability lawyer at The Finizio Law Group can help you assign fault to the responsible party and collect the evidence you need to achieve the justice you rightfully deserve.
What are the types of defective drug injury claims?
If you were injured due to a defective drug, it was likely at the fault of a negligent drug manufacturer. Some examples of negligence are as follows:
- Unsafe drug design: manufacturers are legally obligated to ensure their drugs are safe for public use. You must prove that there was a safer and economically feasible way to make the drug that would not hinder its usability.
- Negligent drug manufacturing: manufacturers are responsible for ensuring that they follow the blueprints provided by drug designers. You must prove that they diverged from these guidelines to either cut costs or save time, and thus the drug became unsafe.
- Failure to provide drug warnings: manufacturers must include written warnings about potential hazards and instructions on how to use and not use the drug. You must prove that there was no clear marketing that would have otherwise prevented the accident from occurring.
If not for the negligence of a manufacturer, your defective drug injury may have been caused by that of a drug distributor. And other times, the at-fault party is a negligent doctor or pharmacist who prescribed or supplied the incorrect medication. If this is your case, you may be eligible to file a medical malpractice claim with the assistance of a talented Broward County medical malpractice lawyer.
