We can help prove the Liability of the Drug Manufacturer
People who take prescribed or over-the-counter drugs may not be well to begin with, but the result of a dangerous drug is often a new injury, illness, or a complication of an existing medical condition. A dangerous drug case rests on the fact that had the manufacturer not acted negligently in some way, the user would not have suffered this new injury or medical complication.
The American Journal of Health-System Pharmacy notes the various ways a drug manufacturer may prove negligent:
If a manufacturer neglects to maintain its facility where it produces the drug, contamination may occur. A user may suffer illness from the toxins that make their way into the product.
Mislabeling involves a misidentification of the drug or incorrect information about its ingredients. Some people are allergic to certain chemicals or substances, so a mislabeled drug could cause a serious medical reaction.
All drugs have to undergo extensive testing and approval. When a manufacturer distributes a drug that causes adverse reactions, they may prove liable for the injuries and complications that result.
Some people take medication in order to prevent life-threatening medical conditions, and if a product proves defective, the user’s life may be at risk.
Most drugs are not solely composed of one chemical or substance. Manufacturers have to dilute chemicals to a certain potency level for users to experience their medical benefits. When a manufacturer fails to use the appropriate potency of a chemical, their product may prove defective or dangerous.
We can help you prove your injuries were related to the dangerous product in order to establish the liability of the drug manufacturer. Our investigation into your case may reveal the manufacturer committed one or more acts of negligence when producing its product.

You must File a Lawsuit within two years
If negotiations with the manufacturer’s insurer do not yield fair results, we can take your case to court. We do not have forever to do this, though. Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003 only allows claimants two years to take legal action.
When it comes to dangerous drug cases, the two years usually begin counting down on the date you discovered your injury or illness. We can help you abide by this statute of limitations as long as you get started on your case as soon as possible.
If you wait too long to file, you risk having your case dismissed by the court.
