Drug companies have a legal responsibility to make sure their products are safe for human use. Drug manufacturers have a legal duty to warn potential users - usually through a doctor, pharmacist or warning labels on each bottle - of any potentially adverse side effects. A prescription drug recall may be ordered when problems appear on a large scale.
When prescription drug errors occur, the injured person may have a legal claim against the drug manufacturer, and possibly against the prescribing doctor or pharmacist as well. These errors can occur if the doctor prescribes the wrong medication, prescribes a medicine the patient is allergic to, or gives improper dosing instructions. They can also be the fault of a pharmacist or nurse who administers the drug incorrectly or administers the wrong drug altogether.
