Utah Pharmaceutical Injury Attorney
Like any product manufacturer, pharmaceutical companies provide a needed supply of highly demanded goods. Prescription drugs and other pharmaceutical products have helped relieve pain and suffering for many people and have helped cure dangerous diseases and saved many lives.
Unfortunately, there are many pharmaceutical products which do not provide the anticipated results and even severely injure the person taking them. Nearly everyone has heard of the problems that arose with Vioxx for example and the many people who were injured from that product.
The problem is, it can happen to anyone, because nearly everyone, in one form or another, is taking some type of prescription drug. While most pharmaceuticals do not have any obvious harmful effects there are many that do. Some of those include and have included:
Gadolinium (MRI Dye)
HRT-Hormone Replacement Therapy
Pharmaceutical companies have to work through the Food and Drug Administration to gain approval for their drugs. Once a drug has been approved, the pharmaceutical company hash to continue to report to the FDA regarding the performance of the drug. Although the FDA holds pharmaceutical companies to meet certain criteria before a new drug can go on the market, this does not mean that the drugs are defect free. If a pharmaceutical company discovers a defect, such as a harmful side effect that was not previously known, the pharmaceutical company has a duty to notify the FDA and provide warnings to physicians and others in the health care industry who prescribe the drug. If the pharmaceutical company fails to provide teh appropriate warnings or if it fails to notify the FDA of the defects, then those consumers who have been injured by the defective drugs may have recourse against the pharmaceutical company including being entitled to compensation for the damages caused.
