Drug Defects in Fort Myers Defective Drug Cases
When a drug manufacturer creates and markets a dangerous or defective product, Florida law allows us to hold them strictly liable. This means we do not have to prove how the defect occurred, only that the drug has a defect.
In many cases, we meet with potential clients who believe they suffered harm because of an over-the-counter or prescription medication, but they are not sure how to know if the drug they took is defective. We can answer this question in more detail when we review your case, but in general, there are three types of common drug defects:
Also known as failure to warn, these defects occur when there is information missing or incorrect on the labeling or packaging inserts. This could include incorrect instructions, missing drug interaction information, or inadequate warnings about possible side effects or adverse reactions.
Design defects occur when there is a problem with the drug itself. The risks outweigh the benefits for some, many, or all users. This usually occurs because the combination of ingredients or one of the ingredients can cause dangerous side effects or put users at extreme risk.
Manufacturing defects are those that occur during the production process. The drug itself is not inherently dangerous, but a problem with the ingredients, the recipe, or how the process works causes contamination or other concerns.
Florida Law Creates Deadlines for Your Fort Myers Defective Drug Case
Florida has statutes of limitations that effectively create a deadline for how long you can wait to take legal action in this type of case. They include:
- Four years for a personal injury
- Two years for wrongful death
If we do not recover a settlement or file a lawsuit by the time your eligibility expires, the court may prevent us from ever taking the case to trial. There are also other factors that can extend or diminish these time limits. We recommend calling for your complimentary consultation as soon as possible. Our case reviews are always free, and you never pay attorney’s fees unless we recover compensation, so you have nothing to lose.
