Protect Yourself Against Dangerous Pharmaceuticals

Dangerous pharmaceutical products are more common than we’d like to think. Recently, Advance Pharmaceutical Inc. released a batch of defective aspirin tablets. The bottle is labeled “Enteric Coated Aspirin Tablets, 81.” However, the tablets actually contain 500 milligrams of aspirin. This labeling error could lead to consumers ingesting more than six times the recommended daily dose in a 24-hour period. Such a high dose can cause serious health risks, including severe liver damage. The defective bottles are marked with lot number 13A026 and an expiration date of 01-2015. If you have this product in your home, discontinue using it immediately.

Pharmaceutical and medical product companies have a duty to supply products that won’t cause harm. Unfortunately, dangerous and defective drugs and medical products often make their way to the consumer. Here’s what you need to know about harmful pharmaceuticals.

Causes of dangerous or defective drugs

Most lawsuits for dangerous of defective drugs or medical products are generally due to design and/or manufacturing defects or a failure to warn of the product’s dangerous propensities.

Products liability lawsuits

If you have been injured by a dangerous or defective drug or medical product, you may have a strong products liability lawsuit against a number of parties. This includes manufacturers, suppliers, distributors and retailers. If the lawsuit is successful, you may be awarded compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages

Drug recalls

When something is dangerous or defective, it is removed from the market and subject to a recall. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration lists up-to-date information about drug recalls on its website. Make sure to keep up with this list so you can keep dangerous or defective drugs out of your home.

If you or a loved one is the victim of a dangerous or defective product, contact an experienced Tulsa products liability attorney as soon as possible. An attorney can represent your legal interests and help you get the compensation you deserve.
