When we’re sick, we take drugs to heal and get better. As a consumer, you never think that the drug you buy to make you feel better may actually make you sick instead. But, that’s the reality for many people who have been injured by defective drugs. When a drug injures you physically, psychologically, or emotionally, whether it’s a prescription or an over-the-counter medication, it’s a defective product, and under Florida’s product liability law, you have the right to be reimbursed for the damage or injury you’ve suffered from these defective products. You could be injured because a drug was improperly manufactured, and therefore was made with a defect, or because the warnings or directions were inadequate. In central Florida, if you or someone you love has been injured using a defective drug – or is injured in the future – contact the Horst Law Firm and experienced Orlando product liability attorney Robert J. Horst immediately. Product liability attorneys like Robert J. Horst will help you determine whether the defects were caused by manufacturing errors or if it is an issue with product labeling. Robert J. Horst has experience in product liability cases, so he will work tirelessly to ensure you get the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF PRODUCT DEFECTS ACCORDING TO ORLANDO ATTORNEYS?
There are three different types of product defects, including design, manufacturing and marketing defects. Design defects occur when the product cannot be used as intended without causing harm because of the way it was designed. Manufacturing defects occur when there is an error with the way a product was manufactured that puts the product’s users at risk of being injured. If a product has a manufacturing defect, it means there was no issue with the actual design, but only with how the product was manufactured. Finally, a product has a marketing defect when it does not have the proper labeling to warn people about potential risks associated with use. Products should also have a label with instructions on how to safely use the product.
IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING THESE SIDE EFFECTS OF A DEFECTIVE DRUG, CONTACT ONE OF THE TOP LAW FIRMS RIGHT AWAY
Victims may begin to experience side effects of taking a defective drug immediately after the first dose or after several doses. In some cases, side effects may not begin until weeks or months after the drug was taken. Some of the side effects you may experience include:
- Changes in blood pressure
- Changes in mood
- Gastrointestinal irritation
- Liver or kidney damage
- Heart attack
- Birth injuries
The side effects will vary depending on how much of the drug you have taken, your medical history, and the type of drug. If you begin to experience any side effects from taking a defective drug, seek legal representation from an experienced attorney as soon as possible. Robert J. Horst can immediately begin to investigate your case, determine liability, and fight for the settlement you deserve.

HOW DOES AN ATTORNEY DETERMINE WHO IS LIABLE IN CASES INVOLVING DEFECTIVE PRODUCTS?
A drug manufacturer must print potential side effects and warnings on the drug’s label, and consumers should read every detail on a drug label before using any drug. Physicians and pharmacists are also obligated to ensure that the products they sell and prescribe do not cause harm. A pharmacist is responsible for ensuring precise dosages of the correct medication. Doctors must prescribe only the best and most appropriate medication for your injury or illness. Florida’s production responsibility laws hold drug manufacturers, distributors, pharmacists, and doctors accountable if they create, sell, or prescribe a drug that is dangerous or defective. This is considered negligence, and they may be held liable for your injuries as a result of their actions. If you have been injured using a defective prescription or over-the-counter drug, help is here. Discuss your legal rights, questions, and options – including a product liability claim – at once with Robert J. Horst, a product liability lawyer in the Orlando area.
ORANGE COUNTY LAWYERS CAN HELP YOU RECOVER COMPENSATION FOR YOUR INJURIES
If you have been injured because of a defective product, you could be entitled to compensation. Each product liability case is unique, so the amount and type of compensation you receive will depend on the details of your case and the injuries you have suffered as a result of the defect. Defective product victims could be entitled to compensation for:
- Medical expenses (both current and future) that were incurred because of the injuries caused by the defective product
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
