Under what legal theory can the manufacturer of Pradaxa be sued?

Generally, when consumers are harmed or injured as a result of a defective product, including dangerous drugs, product liability attorneys file lawsuits on the behalf of consumers and claim that the manufacturer should be held strictly liable for their defective good. Under this legal theory, the law entitles injured parties to compensation when a dangerous drug, such as Pradaxa is the cause of the harm the person sustains. It is well been established by public policy that manufacturers owe a duty to make certain that they products, including drugs, are safe for consumer use. Additionally, when drug manufacturers fail to provide proper warnings about the hazards of their products, they could be held liable.
