Product Liability Lawsuits for Dangerous Drugs & Products

Product liability lawsuits can also include strict liability claims. Strict Liability is a cause of action under the law which allows for a claim to move forward with the injured individual establishing that the product was defective and that damages or harm resulted. Strict liability takes away some of the required proofs that are ordinary associated with a typical negligence prosecution. In some circumstances, multiple parties may be involved in the manufacturing and the distribution of a dangerous product. In certain circumstances, the multiple parties may all be held liable for the harm done to the injured person.
Liability for Dangerous Drugs
If a drug manufacture markets or sells a drug and does not market or sell that drug in a proper way, the maker of the drug can be held labile if an individual is injured as a result of the improper marketing or sale. Additionally, if the maker of a drug fails to properly advise the public about the potential side effects of the specific drug and one of those side effects causes an injury, the drug manufacturer may be held liable.

Lawsuits against a drug manufacturer may include claims of improper marketing and/or failure to warn of the potential negative health risks that are associated with these drugs.
