Prescription Drugs in Nampa
Under Idaho Statutes §54-1738, a pharmaceutical may be called a prescription drug, or legend drug, if it requires a legal, medical prescription.
Other characteristics that may place a medicine into the category of prescription drugs include being declared one by the State Board of Pharmacy or the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
A seasoned dangerous drugs lawyer in Nampa can review the evidence to and help you hold the responsible party accountable in court.
Responsibilities of Sellers of Dangerous Drugs in Nampa
In addition to the original manufacturer of a pharmaceutical, there may be many other parties who may be liable for damages.
According to Idaho Statute §6-1407, a seller of pharmaceuticals, other than the manufacturer, may not be liable if they did not have an opportunity to inspect the product.
A drugstore or other seller of pharmaceuticals may be held liable if one of the following conditions is met:
- The seller had reason to know a drug was defective.
- The pharmaceutical vendor sold the drug past its expiration date.
- The drug was sold by a wholly-owned subsidiary of the manufacturer of the medication.
An experienced Nampa dangerous drug attorney at Skaug Law can review the facts of the case and hold each party accountable to help you recover more compensation.
Adulterated or Misbranded Drugs
If a manufacturer, wholesaler, or retailer places an adulterated or misbranded medication into the stream of commerce, they may be liable for damages.
An adulterated medicine, per the Idaho Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, is one that has been exposed to poisonous, filthy, or otherwise unhealthful substances. Such medications, if discovered, are required to be put aside and destroyed.
If you are harmed by an adulterated medication, you have the potential of success in a lawsuit against a maker or seller who allowed it to be placed on the shelves.
Mislabeled pharmaceuticals provide false or misleading information about the product. A drug might be mislabeled in its packaging, affixed label, or printed inserts.
If a drug manufacturer or seller misrepresents the pharmaceutical’s capabilities, ingredients, or measurements, you may be eligible to recover compensation.
Skaug Law dangerous drug lawyers in Nampa have experience with cases involving adulterated or misbranded medicines.
