An increasing number of drug injuries are being reported across Florida and the US because of the ever-relaxing FDA oversight. Pharmaceutical companies rush products to markets and frequently cut corners on the drug’s manufacturing, testing, and regulatory approval. If you or a loved one has been the victim of drug injuries, the legal team at The Alvarez Law Firm can help.

Miami Mass Tort Lawsuits Against Pharmaceutical Firms

Pharmaceutical injuries usually affect a large group of consumers in a similar fashion. This is why drug injury lawsuits against pharmaceutical companies are usually handled as a mass tort. In a mass tort, several cases are brought together in front of a single judge. Additionally, evidence gets shared between the different cases. It’s vital to understand that the same judgment is given to a large number of plaintiffs in a class action suit, while each individual case is valued in mass torts. 

How Do Drugs Cause Injuries?

Any new medication needs to be studied before it is allowed on the market. This is done to ensure its safety. Unfortunately, pharmaceutical companies have found ways to manipulate the system to increase profits. The US Supreme Court has asserted that it is the manufacturer’s sole responsibility to properly and accurately label drugs.

This is because only manufacturers have complete knowledge regarding a drug. Drug companies do everything possible to hide risks rather than label them. They frequently market dangerous drugs with devastating side effects for profit. This is done in the hopes that they would be able to make a tidy profit before the risks come out.
