Understanding the Types of Defective Drugs
We can help you understand your Miami defective drug case and may be able to build a case against the drug company on your behalf. There are three types of defective drugs:
- Design defects
- Manufacturing defects
- Labeling defects
Design defects are problems that occur as a result of the formulation or design of the drug itself. This could include dangerous or potentially deadly side effects or adverse reactions that are often dangerous enough that the possible harm outweighs the potential benefits for most or all patients.
Manufacturing defects occur when something goes wrong with a certain batch or several batches of the drug. Any problem during the manufacturing process can cause a manufacturing defect. Too much or too little of an ingredient can cause a relatively safe drug to cause serious injury or death.
Labeling defects, sometimes called “failure to warn,” occurs when there is incorrect or inadequate information on the medication’s label, or information is missing from the accompanying paperwork. This can include dosage instructions, possible side effects, drug interactions, and more.
Your Miami Defective Drug Lawyer Can Pursue Compensation on Your Behalf
If we can show that you suffered injuries because of a defective drug, we can hold the drug company liable for the damages you suffered. This is possible because all product liability cases are strict liability claims. This means we do not have to show how the drug manufacturer acted negligently. Our Miami defective drug lawyer can hold the company liable no matter when or why their product became defective.
Under strict liability, drug manufacturers are responsible for the safety of their products from the moment they introduce them to the marketplace until the consumer uses them.
Florida law, however, limits how long we have to hold a drug company liable for its defective medication. In general, this includes:
- Four years for an injury case
- Two years from the date of death for a wrongful death case
It is important we meet these deadlines, or you could lose your right to pursue compensation by taking the case to court.
In addition to building a case because you suffered injuries, we can help if a member of your immediate family passed away after taking a dangerous or defective medication. We will review your possible wrongful death case and help you understand if you are eligible to take legal action. If you are not, we may be able to identify another party who can pursue compensation on behalf of your family.
