What You Need to Know About Product Liability Cases

According to the Health Policy Institute, more than 131 million people, or 66 percent of all adults in the United States, use prescription drugs. With the number only expected to grow in the years ahead, it is essential patients understand the potential side effects ranging from mild to wrongful death. In the event of a wrongful death due to another’s negligence, a Birmingham wrongful death attorney can help work towards financial compensation.

Defective drug cases fall under what is referred to as product liability, which constitutes any action brought by a natural person for personal injury, death, or property damage caused by the manufacture, construction, design, or formula, according to Ala. Code § 6-5-521.

How Do I Know If I Have A Defective Drug Case?

When determining if a drug is defective, yielding a product liability case, the drug must have one or more of the following:

  • A design flaw in the product or medication that makes it inherently dangerous
  • A manufacturing error, such as a hazardous or toxic substance
  • A failure to notify consumers with a warning of the potential side effects
  • Misleading marketing or exaggerated claims about the benefits of the product

When to File a Product Liability Claim

According to the statute of limitations in Alabama, found under Ala. Code § 6-5-502, victims have two years to file a product liability injury or death lawsuit and one year for any actions against the original seller. If you wait to file a claim after your specific statute of limitations, your claim will likely not be viable.

If you believe you have a case, the time to act is now. Contact a Birmingham defective drug lawyer from DeGaris Law.
