When it comes to medications and prescriptions, it’s important that patients get the desired effects from the drugs prescribed to them, lest their afflictions turn for the worse. Where prescription drugs have caused serious harm than relief, patients can—with the help of personal injury lawyers in Brooklyn—go after the manufacturers who produced the defective drugs.
Under the Defective Drugs Law, a certain drug is considered defective when 1). It has been manufactured improperly (or if the drug has been contaminated in the process of manufacturing, thereby causing harm to people); 2). If the drug was manufactured correctly, although its side effects caused the harm or injury; and 3). If the drug had failed to sufficiently warn or provide sufficient instructions and recommendations for its use.
