Given the current circumstances, our office staff will primarily be working remotely. We will have a reduced number of people on site from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Our staff will still be responding to emails and phone calls and continuing to do the necessary things to care for our clients. We ask that if you do not need to visit our office in person, you stay home and contact us via telephone or email. We are still here to serve and hope that everyone stays safe and healthy.

Who Is Responsible For Medication Injuries?

It is no secret that some drug manufacturers will attempt to classify certain drugs in a manner designed to lessen scrutiny by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ― all in an effort to gain approval without costly and time-consuming research and clinical trials. However, just because the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approves a drug does not guarantee its safety, nor will its approval shield a manufacturer from possible liability if the drug is dangerous.

In fact, before selling pharmaceuticals, drug manufacturers must first try to understand the drug’s dangers and potential side effects, and then to ensure that the public is informed of the possible risks. For over-the-counter medications, this is done by proper labeling and informational enclosures. For prescription drugs, the manufacturer generally has a duty to warn only the physician/health care provider, not the consumer. The physician understands that most patients ordinarily rely on the doctor’s judgment and advice.

When prescribing a drug, it is incumbent upon the doctor/health care provider to disclose to the patient the possible risks attached to such usage. Failure to adequately advise a patient of all associated risks so that the person may give informed consent may result in a claim for malpractice against the doctor/health care provider. Drug manufacturers and prescribing physicians hold positions of trust, and should expect that if their actions or inactions cause damage, they will be held responsible.

However, whether your medication injury is the result of a manufacturer’s negligence or improper care by your physician, you need a dedicated law firm by your side ― you need Harris, Powers & Cunningham.
