Drug Companies and Drug Injuries
Sometimes, drug companies manufacture drugs that have dangerous side effects and they don’t warn either doctors or patients. Under product liability regulations, the drug company is responsible for a patient’s injuries.
One major example of this is the opioid lawsuits that are happening right now against pharmaceutical companies. According to the plaintiffs, not only did the drug companies fail to warn doctors about the dangerous addictive side effects of these drugs but actually assured them that the drugs were less addictive than other opioids that came before them. As a result, the drug companies spawned millions of drug addicts, destroyed lives, and hurt families. This would be an example of a drug company failing to properly warn patients and doctors about the dangers of their drug.
