One of the biggest rewards I have faced as a trial lawyer is bringing a product liability case against a major pharmaceutical company. Going up against any company with deep pockets in the courtroom can be daunting – a matter of David versus Goliath. A major pharmaceutical company presents a particularly interesting adversary because not only are their pockets deeper than everyone else’s but they are inclined to spare no expense when defending one of their major products against a product liability claim.

A lawsuit against a pharmaceutical company presents additional issues when the case involves people with an extremely rare medical condition or genetic disorder, who end up being severely injured or even killed by a common over the counter medication. I have been involved in several lawsuits of this kind, including a case involving a young girl who suffered from a very rare condition called toxic epidermal necrolysis or TENs, which is a life-threatening skin condition that can be triggered by over the counter medications. While TENs may be treatable if detected early on, unfortunately the condition is very difficult to diagnose quickly (in part because it’s so rare) and by the time it is diagnosed, the injuries can be horrific if not fatal. This was sadly what happened with the case I handled – the young girl with TENs died after a painful ordeal simply from a normal dose of a non-prescription medication.

It’s important that your attorney understand the legal issues presented in these unique cases. Even if the label on the medication fails to include a warning as to the risk of TENs (or similar rare condition), the drug company will aggressively defend against a product liability claim on the basis, in part, that the medication and label were both approved by the Federal Drug Agency. This is a strong defense that can be overcome if the plaintiff’s counsel can demonstrate that there was a material inadequacy or omission in the submission that the drug company made to the FDA in the first place. To prove this requires a review of the massive documentation that was submitted to the FDA as part of the drug approval process. It requires a huge investment of time and effort by the lawyers to review and analyze millions of documents.
