Boxed warnings on the prescribing labels of medications provide patients with information about a
product’s safety and potential risks. Unfortunately, a new study finds that over 60% of participants in clinical trials are not provided information about boxed warnings on their consent forms. This oversight can easily lead to serious injury.
If you have been injured by a product or medication with undisclosed risks, please call Bakersfield product liability attorney Mickey Fine at (661) 333-3333 for a free and informative case evaluation.
The study, published in the July 2015 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association, finds failure to disclose risks almost standard throughout the drug testing industry. According to the study, 50% of trials sponsored by government agencies fail to disclose risks on consent forms. This number rises to 56% among drug companies and an alarming 81% among academic institutions. When you or a loved one suffer harm due to known but undisclosed dangers, you may be entitled to seek compensation through legal action. California product liability attorney Mickey Fine would be honored to meet with you free of charge to discuss your case, your rights, and the most effective way to move forward.
