Defective and Dangerous Products Attorneys in Phoenix, Arizona
A product should be reliable and safe; unfortunately, this is not always the case.

This is called product liability.

Unfortunately, seemingly reliable prescriptions and over-the-counter drugs may be the main cause in the distribution of dangerous drugs. Dangerous drugs can be the result of inaccurate drug testing or unknown long-term side effects. Prior to drugs being approved by the Federal Drug Association (FDA), drug companies are required to have their drugs undergo various tests. Unfortunately, despite undergoing different drug tests and having FDA approval, some drugs may still be quite harmful and possibly life threatening.
Your injuries may have been caused by, but not limited to, the following:
- Flaws in the manufacturing of the product
- Inaccurate test results
- Unknown side effects
- Conscious violation of safety codes and standards
Manufacturers of products, the FDA, and drug companies are obligated to make certain that their products are reliable and safe. The following are a couple vital actions these companies should take in order to prevent such destructive items from entering the public market.
- In order to make certain that a product is not defective and that nothing wrong will take place when using the product:
- Numerous tests should be performed
- Warning labels should be used to inform consumers of possible dangers, side effects, and/or allergens
- If a product causes unknown and dangerous side effects, it is the responsibility the product manufacturer and the FDA to recall that dangerous product in order to protect the general public.
If precaution and thoroughness in regards to safety and side effects are not a manufacturer’s main priorities, then the production and circulation of harmful manufactured goods will likely ensue.
