Pharmaceutical Product Injury Lawyers in Dallas, Texas
When You Have Been Injured because of a Manufacturing Defect
There have been many medications heralded as “wonder” drugs over the last couple decades. Some have significantly improved the lives of those using them. Others, however, have suffered serious side effects, often as a result of negligence or carelessness in the manufacture of a pharmaceutical product. In many instances, the actual manufacture of these items has been outsourced to countries on the other side of the world, where quality control standards cannot be effectively monitored.
