Defective Drugs and Medical Devices
Harman Law Firm attorneys maintain a practice focus on defective drugs and medical devices
Most people are shocked when they learn that the U.S. Food & Drug Administration does not test the safety and side effects of medications and medical devices. Instead, the FDA allows a drug company to test its own drugs.
Over the years, the business of prescription medication has become more competitive and much more profitable. Drug companies are constantly pressured by their management to release new drugs and to increase sales of old drugs. In some cases, competition from generic drugs also puts pressure on drug companies to move through their research and development as quickly as possible.
Too often, drug companies ignore safe practices and intentionally fail to conduct medical testing that would reveal potential side effects, instructions for safe use, and preexisting conditions that increase the risk of injury. In some recently published news, drug companies paid fines for withholding safety information.
By the time the government steps in to force the company to recall the drug (or to issue a proper warning), thousands of patients have already been harmed. And these pharmaceutical giants start the cycle over with a new drug.
