Baton Rouge Lawyer for Dangerous Drug Cases
Injuries, Illness or Death from Prescription Medications
Defective or dangerous drugs are regarded as prescription drugs that cause damage to a victim who used them. Under federal regulation, drug companies are expected to thoroughly test any prescription drugs that may be headed to the open market to make sure they are safe for consumption. These tests are usually carried out through large testing trials with a range of different types of people. After a drug has been determined to be safe for consumption by the general public or those who have a written prescription from a doctor, it can be released onto the market. Additionally, drug companies must list important information such as ingredients and directions for use on the label of each drug product being offered, as well as all potential side effects.
