You take prescription and over-the-counter drugs to make you feel better. Some drugs have side-effects. That’s why drug companies must ensure that the benefits outweigh those side-effects. It’s a basic safety rule. When negative side-effects are worse than expected, there may be a drug recall.
The pharmaceutical industry is a multi-billion dollar business. The competition to bring a new drug to market is fierce. Some drug products are rushed to market before being properly tested. Drug companies sometimes fail to warn about potential side-effects.
When profit becomes a higher priority than safety, the results can be devastating. Dangerous drugs cause severe injuries or death. When drugs injure people, the drug company is liable for all of the harms they cause.
