Plaintiff v. Pharmaceutical Manufacturer
Sedgwick obtained a voluntary dismissal with prejudice for our client, a pharmaceutical manufacturer, in an action in federal court. Plaintiff alleged that a commercially successful drug was defectively designed, and that our client failed to warn that the product might become contaminated with pathogens. Sedgwick elicited evidence proving that the product could not have caused plaintiff's illness, that the medication could not support the growth of infectious pathogens, and that the company acted with the full approval of the FDA in selecting appropriate warnings. After the presentation of this evidence, plaintiff agreed to dismiss the case.
