Organ-System Failure Lawsuit Claims Lawyer
When you use a product as intended, you assume it is safe. This includes pharmaceutical products and medications. While most drugs have some possible side effects, they should be explained to you by your doctor or pharmacist. It is also expected that the risk of injury is low, especially in relation to the medical condition being treated. When a product causes serious side effects, like organ system failure without warning, the manufacturer may be liable for damages.
In recent years, there have been several pharmaceutical products that have caused serious organ-system failures. Patients taking drugs for minor health issues have had severe damage to their heart, kidneys, liver and other organs. In some cases, the damage to these necessary organs have resulted in organ-system failures and death. The deadly side effects often were not revealed by the manufacturer.
Defective Pharmaceutical Products
Drugs are products, and like all products, they can be defective. If a medication causes a serious injury, like organ-system failure, it may be defective. There are a few ways pharmaceutical products can be defective, including:
- Tainted or defectively manufactured drugs
- Improper marketing of a drug
- Failure to warn of dangerous side effects like organ failure
Some drugs may have been on the market for decades, but the dangers of organ or pulmonary damage is just beginning to surface. If the manufacturer knew of the dangers and did not disclose this information, they may be liable for injuries or deaths caused by their products.
If you have suffered cardiac or organ-system failure due to undisclosed side effects from a pharmaceutical product, you may be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer.
