Pt loses her arm, sues, and wins. Legal question: Since the drug manufacture warns of the intra-arterial risk and their warnings and drugs are FDA approved, should the pt be able to sue? Should FDA approval be an approval of risk-benefit, or a minimum standard? What do you guys think? I think, given what the FDA process is today, it should be considered a minimum and people should be able to sue.
