Drug product cases, also known as pharmaceutical liability, happen when drug manufacturers release products into the market without sufficient studies or despite problematic evidence around side effects. In The Palm Beach Post article titled Pharmaceutical liability basics to know when making a claim, Florida pharmaceutical liability attorney Ted Babbitt outlines when injured persons may have reason to file a claim:
- False advertising – such as failure to provide adequate information on how to use the drug.
- Defective manufacturing – this includes drugs that are mislabeled or tainted.
- Unknown side effects of a drug – which may happen because a manufacturer did not properly disclose the risks involved with taking the drug.
