Pharmaceutical Litigation Lawyer
Alan Sackrin Knows How to Help
Broward County Defective Drug Lawyer
Adverse drug reactions are one of the leading causes of death in the United States. When a doctor prescribes a medication, you expect it to be safe and effective. Unfortunately, if the medication or supplement you take is defective, you can be severely injured. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible for monitoring the safety and use of prescription drugs. The FDA also issues drug recalls, safety alerts and labeling changes when a drug is found to cause previously unknown serious side effects, which can include severe injuries and even death. Even though the FDA provides oversight, drug companies still have the ultimate responsibility to ensure that the drugs they market are safe for consumer consumption. When drugs have serious side effects and cause injuries, victims are entitled to collect compensation for their injuries, medical bills and pain and suffering.
Even drugs that have passed inspection by the FDA can still be dangerous and cause serious injury to consumers
With over 30 years of experience handling injury lawsuits, Alan Sackrin, a board certified civil trial specialist, understands that dangerous and defective drugs can cause unnecessary suffering, permanent injury and death. If you suffered a serious injury or a loved one died as a result of a dangerous or defective drug, Alan can litigate your case to seek the compensation that you deserve.
Dangerous or Defective Drugs Can Result From Several Factors:
- They can be caused by insufficient testing of drugs and their premature release into the marketplace before drug manufacturers are aware of the risks and side effects involved in taking the drug.
- They can be the result of a practice known as “off-label” use where the drugs are used for diseases or conditions that they were not originally designed or tested for.
- They can be the result of the drug manufacturer failing to properly warn consumers about known risks of taking the drug.
- They can also be the fault of a pharmacist or nurse who administers the drug incorrectly or administers the wrong drug altogether.
Drug manufacturers have a legal responsibility to make sure their products are safe for human use. This is true for companies that manufacture prescription drugs as well as companies that manufacture over-the-counter drugs.
- Drug manufacturers also have a legal duty to warn potential users — usually through a doctor, pharmacist or warning labels on each bottle — of any potentially negative side effects.
- When prescription drug errors occur, or preventable illness is caused by unsafe over-the-counter medications, the injured person may have a legal claim against the drug manufacturer, and possibly against the prescribing doctor or pharmacist as well. These errors can occur if the doctor prescribes the wrong medication, prescribes a medicine the patient is allergic to, or gives improper dosing instructions.
