Dangerous Drugs

Injury Claims for Dangerous Pharmaceuticals

In recent times, many popular drugs have been manufactured on a “fast track” basis and distributed to early, for the public only to learn that these improperly manufactured drugs would constitute a significant danger to the public health. It is a crucial matter of public safety and wellbeing to hold the manufacturers of dangerous and defective drugs accountable for their negligent conduct and the injuries that they have caused. Unfortunately, if you or your loved one has suffered an injury, illness, serious medical condition, or even loss of life, you are only a statistic when it comes to the pharmaceutical industry. At Klemick and Gampel, P.A., we understand that you are an individual human, with unique personal needs and experiences. In the event of injury or harm, we will passionately represent you against the pharmaceutical manufacturer, which may be held liable for its negligent manufacture of the dangerous or defective drug, or for its failure to warn of those risks it knew or should have known at the time of manufacture.

The FDA Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) is the governmental entity responsible for reviewing potential pharmaceuticals seeking approval for use in the United States. For CDER to begin its evaluation of a certain drug, the pharmaceutical manufacturer is required to first conduct extensive testing and to document its findings. The manufacturer’s ultimate application to the FDA contains its clinical results, labeling information, purported safety information, and directions for proper use, among other information. In this respect, the FDA relies upon the testing performed by the pharmaceutical manufacturer. Of course, pharmaceutical manufacturers can and do make errors (or worse), resulting in the production and distribution of a dangerous or defective drug.

The theory behind Big Pharma is that the benefits outweigh the danger to consumers. When there are enough side effects, the firms will eventually pull the drug off the market, either voluntarily, or involuntarily as ordered by the FDA. If you have suffered serious side effects from taking any pharmaceutical drug, a Miami personal injury lawyer from Klemick and Gampel, P.A. can help.
