Legal Responsibilities: The Buck Stops Where?
Determining who is legally responsible for damages you have suffered is crucial to each defective pharmaceutical case. Doctors are not usually liable unless it can be proven that inappropriate drugs were prescribed for a patient.
Several important steps are required before a drug is released to the public. Clinical trials are performed, risks and benefits are weighed, and final acceptance is given or denied by the FDA. Drug testing is performed in-house by pharmaceutical companies that manufacture them, and may not be comprehensive. Results may be skewed to favor early release or are otherwise improperly reported.
A legal document known as “Failure to Warn” holds Pharmaceutical companies responsible for failing to notify the public and health care providers of risks involved when taking specific drugs.
