A dangerous drug generally refers to a prescription or over-the-counter medication designed to help someone, when in actuality there are very serious side effects that can cause other detrimental health issues. There are many different ways for dangerous drugs to become an issue, one of which is through deliberate action. For example, when a doctor or pharmaceutical company knows the dangers of a specific medication and yet prescribes and administers it regardless of the potential damage that it does. Another way for dangerous drugs to be administered is through negligence. There have been cases where a pharmacy has accidentally mixed up medications such as prenatal vitamins with chemotherapy drugs.
When incidents like these occur, someone will be prescribed the wrong drug, or deliberately prescribed a dangerous drug. This situation can cause serious injuries, disease, and other issues. If you or a loved one has been the victim of personal injury due to a dangerous drug then you may be able to collect monetary compensation for your injuries.
