How is Liability Proven in Defective Pharmaceutical Product Case?
Determining who is liable for your defective drug or pharmaceutical product case can be difficult. Our firm will look at a number of different factors including who prescribed the drug or product, whether or not the design was flawed if the proper tests were carried out, and how the drug or product was manufactured.
Depending on the unique details of your case, any of the following may be 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 or product
- 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 accountable for your injuries.
