Injuries from defective products can have a devastating impact on individuals and their loved ones. In many cases, consumers suffer serious injuries after using or consuming dangerous products. New Hampshire product liability lawsuits generally stem from design defects, manufacturing defects, or marketing defects. When individuals experience injuries or damages due to these defects, they may be entitled to monetary compensation to cover their medical treatment, physical pain, lost wages, reduced earning capacity, loss of companionship, and loss of enjoyment of their lives.
The majority of product recall lawsuits arise from injuries related to automotive defects, tobacco products, automobile parts, medical devices, and asbestos. In addition, many defective product cases concern defective prescription drugs. Consumers may file a lawsuit even if the pharmaceutical company issues a recall for potentially harmful medication or medical device. For instance, according to a recent news report, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), announced that Acella Pharmaceuticals, LLC, is voluntarily recalling a thyroid medication that may have sub potency levels of the active component.
The company explained that the drug treats patients experiencing hypothyroidism. However, those taking the sub potent drug may suffer dangerous symptoms. These side effects are particularly harmful to newborns, infants, and pregnant women. Symptoms include fatigue, sensitivity to cold, constipation, dermatological issues, hair loss, slow heart rate, depression, and weight fluctuations. Further, there is a serious risk of miscarriage, fetal hyperthyroidism, and impairments to fetal neural and skeleton development. Additionally, older adults and those suffering from cardiac issues may experience palpitations and arrhythmia. The company provided notices to medical offices, pharmacies, and wholesalers.
