Who is responsible for a dangerous drug claim?
The pharmaceutical drug industry is immense and there are a lot of big-name entities involved. That being said, it is crucial that you hold a specific party accountable for your suffering. Whether it is one individual or numerous groups, this can further the success of your claim.
Any of the following parties may be considered liable:
- The manufacturer
- The testing laboratory
- The pharmaceutical sales representative
- Your doctor
- Your hospital
- Your pharmacy
Once you determine responsibility, you can begin building your claim. The most effective claims are based around three factors: that you were injured, that the drug was defective, and that the defective drug caused your injuries. It is also important to note that Illinois generally requires all dangerous drug claims to be filed within two years of the date of the injury.
