Dangerous & Defective Drug Claims in Salt Lake City
Our Pharmaceutical Product Liability Lawyers Are Ready to Fight for You
Millions of people throughout the United States rely on pharmaceutical medications to treat a vast variety of illnesses and conditions or to prevent disease. As consumers, we trust that these medications have gone through rigorous testing procedures to ensure that they are safe and beneficial. While this is often the case, many pharmaceutical drugs contain defects or are unreasonably harmful for normal use. Others are prescribed for off-label, unapproved uses. As a result, countless individuals are harmed or even killed by defective and dangerous drugs every single year.
If you or a loved one suffered injuries, illness, or complications after taking a dangerous or defective pharmaceutical drug, reach out to the Lowe Law Firm team. Our Salt Lake City dangerous drug attorneys can answer your questions and help you understand your legal options as you file a product liability claim. You could be entitled to financial compensation for your damages, including medical bills for care needed to treat your illness or condition, lost wages from time taken off work to visit doctors and/or recover, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and more.
What Makes a Drug “Dangerous?”
Virtually all pharmaceutical drugs carry some risk. These are commonly known as side effects, and most drugs are placed on the market because the proven benefits have been deemed as outweighing the potential side effects. However, when a drug’s side effects are unreasonably dangerous or outweigh the purported benefits, that drug could be considered defective. Additionally, when drugs are marketed for off-label (meaning, untested) use, they can be considered dangerous.
So, how do dangerous and defective drugs make it onto the market and into the hands of consumers? Surprisingly, and contrary to popular belief, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) doesn’t actually test drugs. Instead, it relies on information regarding the drug’s benefits and side effects, as well as its intended uses, from the pharmaceutical company that manufactured the drug. Often, pharmaceutical companies will push drugs through the trial phase in order to enhance their profits. They may ignore dangerous side effects or try to claim that the benefits outweigh potential risks, even when this is not the case.
