When the Risks Outweigh the Benefit

Before a drug or device is released to the market, it must be cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). However, in some cases, devices can be released without testing if they are “sufficiently similar” to another product. The FDA must be satisfied that the benefit of the drug or device’s intended user outweighs its risk.

However, due to the enormous profits many drugs promise to pharmaceutical companies, testing may not be as thorough or stringent as possible. Many drugs that have been involved in litigation recently were not extensively tested. For example, Zofran was once marketed to pregnant women—despite never testing its effects on unborn children.

How Long Do I Have to File a Lawsuit?

One of the most important things you need to know if you’ve been injured in an accident is how much time you have to file a claim. In Missouri, the statute of limitations for filing an injury claim is five years from when the injury occurred.

In some cases, where the effects of the injury do not reveal themselves right away, the court may allow you to substitute the date of discovery for the start of the statute of limitations. This is to give the person filing the claim ample time to pursue compensation, no matter the circumstances.

We understand that this can be a very intimidating time. That is why our St. Louis personal injury lawyers are here to guide you. We evaluate your case with the insight and direction you need.
