Detroit Drug Contamination Attorneys
Drug manufacturers have an obligation to their consumers to make their drugs safe and effective, and to communicate clearly any dangers associated with use of their medications. Unfortunately, not all drug manufacturers take the appropriate safety precautions during manufacturing, which can lead to drug contamination. Contaminated drugs are drugs that have dangerous foreign materials in them and can cause devastating adverse effects in consumers. While there is likely to be much suffering from contaminated drugs for the patient and his or her family, fortunately, financial compensation may be available to those who have suffered.
If you or someone you know has been injured by taking drugs contaminated with foreign materials, do not hesitate to contact the Detroit drug contamination lawyers of Ravid & Associates, P.C., at (866) 644-6587 for a free and confidential consultation.
Causes of Drug Contamination
A drug may become contaminated by foreign materials at any point in the production process. Unfortunately, it is next to impossible for a consumer to identify contaminated drugs, and until multiple people suffer from the contaminated drug, it is likely to go unnoticed. Some of the most common causes of contaminated drugs include:
- Using contaminated equipment or ingredients
- Contamination during packaging, or in the packaging itself
- Contamination during the shipping of the drug
- Contamination in the pharmacy where the drug is stored and sold
Contaminated drugs can lead to severe illness, or even death, so if you believe you have been taking a contaminated drug, do not hesitate to consult with a medical professional immediately. Once your condition has been stabilized, it is strongly advisable to consult with a knowledgeable attorney about your legal rights.
