Attorney Ronald Laba’s Counterargument
Dangerous drugs can stay on the market for many years without being recalled. Often the studies that are given to the FDA are biased in favor of the manufacturers who often fund the studies. Other times the research is delayed or, in some cases, suppressed. Drug recalls usually happen only in the most extreme circumstances and after numerous people may have suffered or died. A drug is not necessarily safe just because it has not yet been withdrawn from the market. The same can be said for many defective medical devices.
