Drug Manufacturers Must Follow Protocol
Think of the number of television commercials you have seen for prescription medications. It seems as though there is a new medication released weekly. While these drugs appear to be released quickly, regulations require those drugs to be tested and proven safe for use before their release to the public. Most medications come with a set of known side effects. You may experience one or more, or none at all. What is important to note is that the benefits of the medication must be greater than the risks, and potential side effects must be listed. These precautions are so you and your medical care provider can make an informed decision about what drugs you should be prescribed for your condition. The frightening reality is that drug manufacturers sometimes do not abide by their responsibility. Whether it is due to financial constraints or a rush to introduce the drug to market is hard to say. However, we do know that when they’re negligent, patients suffer. After an adverse reaction or injury, you and your family may work with your Nashville drug injury attorney to prove:
- The drug manufacturer failed to warn medical professionals and the general public about potential side effects.
- The medication was used as directed and intended and you still suffered harm.
- There was negligence in the design, manufacture, marketing, or distribution of the drug.
- An express or implied warranty was breached.
Your personal injury attorney from Steinger, Greene & Feiner will review the details of your unique drug injury and help you determine which of your legal options are best to pursue.

Steinger, Green & Feiner Helps Drug Injury Victims Take Action
Many people are unaware that they are entitled to compensation after being injured by a prescription or over-the-counter medication. People seem to believe that side effects – even dangerous ones – are an accepted risk when taking a drug. This is not always the case. Patients who have been hurt by a drug can sue in a court of law if they were harmed by unacceptable defects and, if their case is proven, recover compensation for financial losses. You have options when seeking compensation:
- File an individual lawsuit.
- Enter a class action lawsuit with other victims. Your case is no longer only about you and the harm you have suffered.
- Combine your case with others in what is known as multidistrict litigation. Your case remains an individual lawsuit, but some decisions made by the judge will apply to all claims.
We understand that it can be difficult to take steps following such serious injuries. You are overwhelmed and don’t know where to turn.
