Can I file a legal claim for a defective drug injury?
A defective drug injury relies on who is liable for the cause of the injury. In the event that a drug manufacturer did not take proper precautions and care during the design, manufacturing, or marketing process of their drug, they can be held responsible for the injuries they cause to consumers. In the case where the drug became defective during the distribution process, you may be able to seek financial compensation through legal action to recover damages for the negligent distributor who resulted in your injuries. With a skilled personal injury lawyer on your side, you can choose who you should pursue legal action against for your defective drug injury as part of their services to you. Reach out to our firm today to get started.
Who can be held liable for a defective drug injury?
If you would like to file a lawsuit, is your obligation to choose who the liable party or parties are in your case. This can be the business that manufactured the drug. Unfortunately, frequently, large corporations take the easy way out when it comes to safety testing in order to save themselves money, and they do not always act fast enough to recognize a drug once a flaw is encountered.
In this instance, the liability for a drug injury is with a negligent doctor or pharmacist who hurt a patient by prescribing or supplying them with inaccurate medication. This indicates that the injured party may be able to seek a medical malpractice lawsuit against their medical care provider.
With the aid of a skilled attorney, he or she can help you analyze your case and decide who the potentially responsible party for your injuries may be. A lawyer can also help you collect evidence of liability to use in your case, including the following:
- Witness statements
- Expert testimony
- Medical records
- Relevant photographs
