Who Can Be Held Responsible?
Distributing safe medications is the responsibility of the pharmaceutical company who produces the drug. There are several means by which a pharmaceutical company can be held liable for your injuries, including:
- Failure to Warn
- The company has failed to provide proper warning of the side effects the drug may cause, or to explain proper use.
- Design Defects
- The design of the drug has led to side effects that are harmful to the user.
- Manufacturing Defects
- There was a flaw in the manufacturing process that caused the medication itself to become defective.
Additionally, anyone who has been involved in the distribution of a harmful drug may be liable, including a pharmacy, hospital, or your doctor.
Why You Need an Attorney
These cases can often become complex very quickly. Additionally, pharmaceutical companies and hospitals typically have substantial financial resources and high-profile legal representation. Hiring an experienced attorney can provide several benefits, including:
- Timely and proper submittal of documentation
- Relationships with industry experts who can support your claim
- Implementation of strategies specifically created to strengthen your case
- A better chance of collecting maximum financial compensation for your losses
It is important to pursue your case not only to ensure that you are compensated, but also to hold the negligent party responsible for the harm they have caused so they cannot continue to do so to others.
