Although the Food and Drug Administration regulates drugs before releasing them to be marketed, thousands of people nationwide, including here in North Carolina, suffer adverse side effects every year. Manufacturers of drugs can be held accountable for injuries caused by an unreasonably dangerous or defective drug. A lawsuit was recently filed against Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals and several other defendants, alleging personal injuries caused by one of the company’s products.
McNeil Consumer Healthcare is currently facing lawsuits regarding one of the most well-known brands of pain relievers — Tylenol. Marketing suggests that the drug is not a harmful drug and that it is the drug most recommended by doctors. What consumers in North Carolina and elsewhere were not told, apparently, concerns potential health risks associated with high dosages.
