Every drug must be approved and regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) before being made available to the public. In spite of this, approximately 200,000 people die each year due to defective or wrongly formulated drugs.
A defective drug may result from a design flaw, a mistake during the manufacturing process, or a failure on the part of the warnings, such as neglected side-effects. When such causes result in injury or death, drug manufacturers are liable and must be held responsible.
In some cases, a prescription mistake can be made, such as prescribing a drug you may be allergic to or incorrectly filling a prescription.
Defective drugs may include, but are not limited to: diet drugs, hormonal drugs, cholesterol reducing drugs, steroid pain injections, over-the-counter decongestants, painkillers, heartburn or acid reflux drugs, and antidepressants.
