What is a Defective Drug Lawsuit?
A defective drug lawsuit is a type of personal injury lawsuit where the injured party is harmed because they ingested a defective prescription or over-the-counter medication. Medications can be defective because they fail to warn about risks associated with their use, because they are more dangerous than the average person would reasonably believe, because they are tainted and/or because the manufacturer failed to use reasonable care in the design, production, marketing or sale of the product. These suits can be filed by the injured party or, if the injured party is deceased or incpacitated, by caregivers, or relatives on behalf of the injured party.
