Nashville Drug Contamination Lawyers

Every pharmaceutical product has a particular set of ingredients, and a particular set of guidelines that mandate how this product should be created and stored. When someone is careless in either of these areas, drug contamination can occur, something that can make even the most seemingly harmless pharmaceutical drug dangerous, or even deadly.

Sadly, as we at Pohl & Berk, LLP, know, far too many people in Nashville suffer from the often devastating consequences that drug contamination can cause. While no one would wish to be in this undesirable situation, victims of drug contamination are often granted certain rights and protections under personal injury law. Through these laws, victims are often able to hold the drug manufacturer or pharmacist responsible for the contamination legally and financially accountable.

Causes of Drug Contamination

The contamination of drugs can happen in a number of ways. For instance, any of the following situations might make contamination more likely to occur:

  • Mixture of ingredients
  • Improper storage of ingredients
  • Fluctuations in heat/cold during production
  • Failure to sterilize product-related utensils / tools

Any of these actions could lead to the contamination of a pharmaceutical product. Generally, mistakes such as these are the result of some form of negligence, whether it is merely inattention, carelessness, or sheer recklessness. When this is the case, the party responsible for causing the drug contamination should be held liable.
