Cleveland attorney Peter Brodhead talks about something that is very dangerous to the hundreds of thousands of people who take prescription drugs in this country.
Every day, people take prescription drugs to cure, prevent or treat everything from a mild headache to cancer. On the market you have both a brand name drug and a generic version of the same drug which is offered a lower price point. You may be shocked to hear that if you take a generic drug you have absolutely no claim to a lawsuit if the drug is defective and caused you or your loved one harm. This is due to the fact that the generic drug has to develop and manufacture their drug in the closest possible way to the brand name drug -- they both contain the same chemical makeup. Because they have to follow the brand name drug company's formula, they are not liable for their own drugs that they produce. This was a decision upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court several times as the generic drug company has no other choice than to develop the same product and therefore they are not held responsible for your injuries.
