Hallandale Beach Dangerous Drugs
Many of us have to take prescription medication for medical conditions or issues. Of course, we expect that those medications will be safe for us to take and will improve our health. Unfortunately, our trust in the medical system is sometimes misplaced and unexpected medical interactions and side effects are a major cause of injury and death in the United States. In some cases, pharmaceutical companies and drug manufacturers put profitability first and are not always eager to disclose potential side effects, drug interactions, and other issues with their products. There have been a number of drug recalls, class-action lawsuits, and medical malpractice claims in Hallandale Beach and Florida stemming from dangerous drugs.

One of the common issues that arises with medications and drugs is that in some cases medication is used off label. This means that a drug may be used for a purpose other than the original purpose for which it was intended. For example, some doctors will prescribe birth control medication to women who are suffering from acne because it has been shown that low dose birth control pills can in some cases reduce instances of acne. In some cases, the FDA approves a medication for more than one use and for more than one condition.
However, in these cases it is important that pharmaceutical companies carefully test their product to ensure that it is safe to use, even for the new condition or situation. If pharmaceutical companies or drug manufacturers are negligent in doing more thorough testing and claim that a drug is beneficial for a condition when in fact it may be dangerous, the drug manufacturers can be held liable in a personal injury claim.Who Is Responsible If You Have Been Negatively Affected By A Medication?
In some cases, adverse reaction to a medication may be due to simple error or a mistake. However, in many cases these types of reactions are preventable. If you have been injured, you may have a claim against multiple liable parties, including:
- The pharmacy where you filled your prescription
- The doctor, hospital, or clinic where you got your prescription
- The drug manufacturer or pharmaceutical company responsible for the medication
- Other liable parties
