Drug Injury Lawyers

How is Liability Proven in a Dangerous Pharmaceutical Product Case?
Determining who is liable in a pharmaceutical product case can be difficult. Our firm will look at multiple factors to determine whether the drug is dangerous.
Depending on the unique details of your case, any of the following individuals or companies may be held liable:
- The manufacturer of the drug/pharmaceutical product
- The laboratory where the drug or product was tested
- The pharmaceutical salesperson who recommended the drug
- The doctor who prescribed the drug
- The hospital, clinic, or facility that administered the drug
- The pharmacy or pharmacist who provided the drug/product
This chain of distribution is responsible for the reasonably safe production, sale, and administration of pharmaceutical drugs, and therefore may be held accountable for your injuries.
