A drug might be dangerous if it contains a defect that makes it unsafe for patients and consumers to use. A defect can refer to a design error, manufacturing mistake or marketing issue. A defective or dangerous drug could be one that the manufacturer designed with dangerous ingredients, accidentally made unsafe due to a mistake during production or – most commonly – failed to warn consumers about possible harmful side effects (improper marketing). Any type of medication defect could result in a drug that’s unreasonably dangerous for patients to consume.
In many drug-related lawsuits, plaintiffs hold that the drug manufacturer knew or should have known about the risk of taking a drug, yet purposely failed to disclose this information for fear of losing money. Sadly, this has been the case numerous times in the past. “Big Pharma,” or the major drug manufacturing companies in the United States, generally do not want the public to find out about drugs that may cause patient health problems and deaths. Instead, they skew research and hide information to cover up dangerous drugs as long as possible. Unfortunately, innocent consumers often endure most of the damage.
