Cedar Rapids Drug Contamination Lawyers
The United States Food and Drug Administration has a rigid set of tests and standards that drugs and prescription medicines must pass before they are deemed safe for consumer use. Because of this, Americans trust that their use of prescription drugs and medicines will not be harmful or pose any unforeseen risks. Sadly, this is not always the case. Occasionally, contaminated drugs will make it into the homes of innocent consumers, posing a serious risk for those who unknowingly use the product.
Pharmaceutical manufacturers have a strict liability for their products, and you may be owed compensation for any injuries that you suffer following the use of a contaminated drug.
