Defective Medications Lawyer – Columbus, OH

Prescription Errors and Product Liability

The pharmaceutical industry spends several billion dollars each year to develop and market prescription and over-the-counter medications and drugs, however, mistakes can happen and lead to product liability cases involving the medication. Unfortunately, some pharmaceutical companies sometimes fail to share information about the adverse effects of a drug and as a result, physicians and consumers are not aware of the potential reactions they may have to face.
People are also sometimes harmed when their pharmacists fill their prescriptions improperly either by dispensing incorrect dosages, or even worse, dispensing the wrong prescription entirely. Other times, patients are permanently injured or even killed by defective drugs or prescription errors. These cases fall within a type of law known as product liability.
