Unfortunately, due to the negligence of major drug manufacturers, innocent people fall victims to defective drugs. This usually occurs when large pharmaceutical companies place dollars before lives and rush a drug to the market without adequate testing. As a result innocent victims often suffer permanent, irreversible injuries or death.
When the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issues a drug recall, it is directing that product be removed from the market. Recalls may be conducted on a firm's own initiative, by FDA request or by FDA order under statutory authority. However, as a result of greed, it is rare for manufacturers to remove a money-making product from the market on their own initiative. Therefore, when an innocent victim is injured, the protections of personal injury laws come into play. It is the laws of personal injury such as product liability against big money manufacturers that force justice and demand compensation for the injuries caused by the manufacturer's negligence and greed.
