Pharmaceutical companies are in the business of manufacturing and selling drugs to make a profit. Manufacturers are constantly introducing new drugs into the market and, each year, thousands of people are injured or killed due to dangerous and defective characteristics.
The Food and Drug Administration is the primary governmental agency involved in overseeing the introduction and performance of new drugs and medications. In certain circumstances, the FDA may recall a dangerous drug, or may require that certain warnings accompany the product. Examples of drugs recently acted upon by the FDA include Rezulin, Propulsid, Lotronex, Ephedrine (herbal) and PPA. Other drugs believed by many to present unacceptable risks to patients include Arava, Baycol, Remicade and Serzone.
Pursuing litigation against a large drug company requires experience, persistence, and resources. Defective drug cases often involve evaluations of scientific studies and assessments of the pre-market testing and investigation performed by the drug manufacturer.
