Pharmaceutical Drug Injuries
You can bring a product liability claim as a result of being injured from the use of pharmaceutical drugs. These claims are usually brought because the drug was defective in that it caused injury, or that it lacked adequate warnings about the side effects. This lack of adequate warning proviso is why all of the pharmaceutical drug commercials always end with such a long list of possible side effects. This warning protects the pharmaceutical manufacturer a bit from claims of inadequate warnings.
Who is Liable to You for a Defective Product?
Generally, all of the companies in the chain of distribution could be liable to you for your injuries and damages as the result of a defective product. It is important to enlist the services of an attorney to make sure that all such parties are included in the lawsuit. Often liability is divided up between the parties in the chain of distribution.
