Pharmaceutical Drug Injury
Drugs with deadly or dangerous side effects often make it to the market because their potential dangers were not anticipated during clinical trials. These drugs are classified as defective drugs and have been identified by the FDA as having dangerous side effects that may outweigh whatever benefits they may have. Such an FDA classification often leads to drug recalls, personal injuries and lawsuits against drug companies.
