Unfortunately, some pharmaceutical companies sometimes fail to share information about the adverse effects of a drug and as a result, physicians and consumers are not aware of the potential reactions they may have to face. People are also sometimes harmed when their pharmacists fill their prescriptions improperly: either by dispensing incorrect dosages, or even worse, dispensing the wrong prescription entirely. Other times, patients are permanently injured or even killed by defective drugs or prescription errors. These cases fall within a type of law known as product liability.
