Defective Pharmaceutical Products And Dangerous Drugs

Pharmaceutical products save countless lives. They open the door to a better quality of life for those facing serious health issues.

Yet these benefits are the product of refinement and testing — processes that often span years or decades and require millions of dollars in research and development. Eager to achieve a return on their investment, pharmaceutical companies sometimes cut corners. Whether intentional or not, these lapses can cost innocent people their health and even their lives.

When Pharmaceutical Products Cause More Harm Than Good

How can drugs and products approved by the FDA be dangerous? Unfortunately, no system of safeguards is perfect. Defective drugs and medical devices still find their way into the mass market.
