On television and in Internet commercials, we frequently see images of cheerful, dancing pills and happy humans with the voiceover, “Do you have XXX? Ask your doctor about YYY.” This is often followed by a horrifying list of possible side effects.
As you will learn from Amanda Parrott, who has worked extensively with attorneys on class action and other suits against pharmaceutical companies, long as these lists are, they are often not all-inclusive.
This podcast will introduce you to the several stages through which a drug is tested. You will also learn the various conditions for a manufacturer’s liability. Negligence, fraud, and misrepresentation are reasons for liability. Another category is misuse, i.e., using a drug for a purpose for which it hasn’t been approved.
Amanda got involved in pharmaceutical liability cases on a very personal level when she noticed that certain patients appeared to be having side effects from a particular drug. She did research, attended related conferences, and got in contact with attorneys involved in a suit against the manufacturers. The attorneys recognized her passion on this subject and hired her on a contract basis.
From her experience, she advises that if you get involved in this kind of work, you must know the expected side effects of a drug. Basically, know everything that drug is expected to do, understand its interactions with other drugs, and meticulously determine whether there could be other causes for a condition.
As we’ve seen, cases against pharmaceutical companies are on the rise. If this field interests you, there’s never been a better time to learn more.
