Miami Drug Defect Attorney Explains Quality Control Problems

The manufacturing of pharmaceuticals is complicated. First, there’s the ingredients that go into the drug itself. Then there’s the actual manufacturing and the blending of those ingredients and then, at the factory, there is the quality control to make sure that the right things get into the medication. Then the medication must be tested and must be clinically tested over a series of years, research trials, all that must be done properly. Unfortunately, what we’re finding with these pharmaceutical companies is in the rush to make profits, they’re sacrificing people. They’re hiding bad test results that they don’t want to go public because the profits are so enormous. They spend billions and billions of dollars on advertising, yet not enough on research, not enough on clinical studies and they hush bad results, they keep them quiet to keep them from the people. This leads to serious injuries; this leads to a lack of information from the public. This leads to a lack of warnings. Many pharmaceutical cases are due to a lack of proper warnings. People rely on the warnings that are given by manufacturers on the labels for drugs. If manufacturers don’t properly label their drugs and warn of side effects, people can be seriously injured.
