Drug manufacturers, pharmacists, and doctors have a responsibility to ensure that the drugs they make or prescribe for patients do not cause harm. Some drugs have dangerous side effects or have the potential to cause long-term damage. These drugs are often the subjects of later recalls. There is currently a great deal of publicity concerning harmful side effects of Vioxx, Bextra, and Celebrex; these effects may include an increased risk of heart attack and stroke.
While the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) plays a regulatory role in determining drug safety, the manufacturer is ultimately liable. In some cases, a drug that is normally safe may be an inappropriate choice—perhaps because of a patient’s allergy, condition, or due to a possible reaction with another drug the patient is taking.
Construction sites pose many dangers to workers and others in the area. Workers must often lift heavy objects, operate large machinery, and perform job duties at elevated heights. Still, proper protocol and safety practices can decrease a worker’s or passerby’s risk of being injured. When someone causes a preventable construction accident through negligence, he or she may be liable for the victim’s injuries. Employers of construction workers must properly train their employees. Companies that manufacture construction equipment are liable if their products prove to be defective. If you have suffered a personal injury due to a construction accident, contact the lawyers at Casper & de Toledo in Stamford immediately.
