The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible for safeguarding Americans against the dangers of defective pharmaceuticals but fails to do so in many instances, causing serious illnesses, disabilities, and deaths. Some medications that have been approved by the FDA to treat patients, even when taken as directed, create serious side effects such as blood clots, heart attacks, strokes, kidney damage, liver damage, and lung damage. Needless to say, these side effects can be life-altering disabilities or even worse, a fatal condition.
The manufacturers of these dangerous medications often times are more worried about profits than consumer safety. In the manufacturers’ efforts to increase profits by rushing new medications into the hands of American people, needing remedies for illnesses, the manufacturers often ignore regulations, safe practices, conducting adequate trials, and other consumer protections.
These drug manufacturers must be held legally responsible for the damages caused when these dangerous medications reach the American people due to a flawed design, manufacturing defect, deceptive marketing tactics, and/or failure to warn. A flawed design is basically a defect in the design of the medication, which makes it dangerous. A manufacturing defect is a defect during the production phase of the medication, which makes it dangerous. Deceptive marketing tactics are tactics intended to mislead and misrepresent the intended effects of the medication, which makes it dangerous. Failure to warn is basically inadequate warnings of the medication’s side effects, which makes it dangerous.
