Consumers have every right to expect that the products they purchase will be safe when used properly and according to instructions provided by the manufacturer. Furthermore, it is the responsibility of manufacturers to warn consumers of any potential, unforeseeable hazards associated with the appropriate use of their products. Drug manufacturers in particular must hold their products up to stringent, rigorous standards of safety and efficacy because the consequences of failing to do so could be extremely harmful and even fatal.
Unfortunately, many dangerous drugs have made it onto the market over the years, often as a result of large drug companies putting profits above all else. If you or a member of your family has been harmed by a dangerous, defective drug, the Central Florida personal injury attorneys of Chanfrau & Chanfrau can help.

What Makes a Prescription Drug “Defective”?
There are risks associated with taking any medication, whether it is an over-the-counter pain killer or a prescription drug intended to counter the effects of a serious illness. Anyone who has seen a television commercial for a new prescription drug knows that pharmaceutical companies generally go to great lengths to list the possible risks that can occur when taking a certain drug. However, in some cases, drug manufacturers have minimized or even concealed serious risks in order to accelerate FDA approval of their products. In these events, the manufacturers may be held liable for any injuries or deaths that result from the use of the dangerous drugs.
