Filing a Defective Product Lawsuit – Proving Your Case in the Court of Law
Lawsuits filed against giant pharmaceutical drug makers for unsafe drugs are usually predicated on a product liability tort action. Defective product cases wrest on proving one of three distinct causes of action.
1. Defect in the original design of the drug: Evidence of the failure of the drug manufacturers to implement current drug designs with a substantially lower risk of severe side effects is an important factor in proving the presence of a design defect in the court of law.
2. Defect in the manufacturing process of the drug: Manufacturing defect can be established when the final produced and distributed drug is markedly different and as a result substantially more dangerous than the original safer design.
3. Labeling defect also known as failure to warn: Drug manufacturers owe a duty to warn consumers of their products of all known and knowable risk factors associated with the use if their products. All too often drug companies intentionally fail to place proper warning information on their product in an attempt to maintain the sale of their product.
