Pharmaceutical Drug Liability
Frequently at the center of product liability suites are drugs and medications. It is the responsibility of the manufacturer to test all drugs and medications with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (USDA). That is a necessary process in order to reduce the chances of harmful products being released to the public. Even if the product goes through FDA testing and passes, it has no effect on the manufacturer liability to the injured party.
Often the responsible party are hard to distinguish, it could be the drugs manufacturers, the doctor who prescribe the drug, the nurse who instructs the patient on how to use the drug or the pharmacist who fill the prescription, An experience product liability attorney can help determine who may be at fault.
