Both prescription and over-the-counter medications can be defective, causing injuries or death. Although some defective drugs are recalled, most are not and those that are typically harm many people before a recall is issued.

Drug injury victim and their loved ones often believe that medical malpractice was the cause. Medication errors causing injuries do fall under medical malpractice. When a defective drug causes injury, however, your case falls under product liability and the drug maker, rather than the doctor, is held responsible.

Children’s Products

Defects in children’s products are far too common. Many product defects can cause accidents such as strangulation, choking, and injuries such as eye injuries. The defect may or may not be obvious, and parents may assume that it was just a tragic accident, not realizing that there are safeguards in place which are meant to protect children from these types of accidents, and when they occur it is very often the result of the manufacturer’s failure to follow safety regulations.

In many cases, children’s products are defective due to improper labelling or marketing to children who are too young to use the product safely.

Another common defect is contamination with lead. Lead poisoning is dangerous for both children and adults, but it is more harmful to children because it affects their development and can result in long term disabilities. Children can suffer permanent brain injuries from exposure to levels of lead that are low enough that the child does not show any immediately noticeable symptoms.
