Drug Injury Causes
Drug injuries often result from:
Many drugs are supposed to be manufactured in sterile environments. If foreign substances come into contact with the area where the drug is manufactured, it can cause contamination that can affect millions of doses.
- Defective Manufacturing Processes
Prescription medications must contain exact amounts of active ingredients so doctors can prescribe the right doses to patients. If the manufacturing process is defective, some doses may be too strong or too weak.
- Misleading Marketing
Some drugs are marketed to treat conditions that haven’t been approved the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. When drugs are used to treat off-label conditions, they may be ineffective or cause dangerous interactions with other medications.
It’s the drug manufacturers’ responsibility to ensure their medications are safe to use and free from contaminants or defects. If they fail to do so, they could be considered negligent and responsible for drug-related illnesses or injuries.
