Efforts of Drug and Medical Device Manufacturers to Limit Consumer Rights

If you have suffered serious injuries or illnesses as a result of taking legally prescribed drugs, you are facing an uphill battle.

Major Drug Manufacturers

Any major drug manufacturer will take a number of steps to limit its exposure to liability claims, including lobbying for limitations against liability claims. These companies also have teams of attorneys and resources to defend against these claims in court.

Generic Drug Companies

It is surprising to many people that generic drug companies are actually more difficult to litigate against than major drug manufacturers. One of the primary reasons for this is the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984, which insulates generic drug companies from exposure to liability in several ways.

Cases in recent years have resulted in major limitations on bringing claims against generic drug companies. Although these limitations can present serious difficulties in bringing dangerous drug cases, our lawyers have a wealth of experience and knowledge to help you.
