Medicine Is A Product Too

On Behalf of | Apr 12, 2019 | Product Liability

Children are our most vulnerable population. They are dependent on the adults around them. Whatever they do or do not consume is dependent on an adult around them. Even if you are the most careful of parents, your children may still be at risk to get injured due to a defective product. We aren’t just talking about pinching a finger on a toy. Toys and games are products, but so are medicines. Our California product liability attorneys at Licata & Yeremenko, A Professional Law Corporation have worked with families whose children have been injured due to product malfunctioning. Since 2000 we have worked with victims from a spectrum of defective product issues. Let’s look at what cautions there are for defective products in 2019:

At the end of January of this year infants’ ibuprofen was sold in three different packages for three different stores: Walmart, CVS, and Family Dollar. These are the three top companies where people shop, especially parents as they are usually the most accessible stores with the lowest prices for medicines. The infants’ ibuprofen is being recalled because there is a more concentrated form of medicine within the bottle than necessary. If an infant were to take too much then they may suffer kidney or “renal” injuries as well as other adverse effects.

Medicine is a product too. Companies do their very best to produce a product that is safe for their consumers because their reputation depends on it. Why produce an unsafe product? However, those who produce the product are human too. You don’t always know what a product will do until it is in the hands of the consumer. Once the consumer has the product there is a contract that the company did all they could to ensure that their product is safe. When the consumers are children and it turns them into victims, the defective product becomes much more serious.

What To Do

If you or someone you love has been injured due to a defective product then the best thing you can do is start documenting. Begin documenting what happened, any medical bills, and contact our California defective product lawyers at Licata & Yeremenko, A Professional Law Corporation. We want you to know that you are not alone and you shouldn’t have to deal with the injuries by yourself either. Companies should be held responsible and accountable for their negligence and our team of professional attorneys is ready to make the case for you.

Every company must have product liability insurance. For example, Blitz was a gas can company that produced and sold a gas can that caught on fire when you poured the gas onto the fire. In 2012, over 30 cases were filed with an average of $4 million a case. The company eventually went bankrupt. The company needed to be held accountable. Don’t let the insurance companies bully you into accepting the first offer. Companies at risk of producing a product.
