Collapse New, Evolving Law in Pa. about Pharmaceuticals and Medical Device Products: Instructing a Jury Post-<em>Lance</em> (podcast w/credit)

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s 2014 decision of Lance v. Wyeth created room for interpretation regarding negligence in marketing of dangerous brand-name prescription drugs.

Attorneys with prescription and pharmaceutical cases and litigators will further understand the impact of the case and gain insight from a renowned litigator who has focused on complex pharmaceutical products liability and class action defense cases. Some of the questions and points covered in this one-hour course include:

  • In what ways do prescription products differ from products subject to strict liability?
    • Discussion of Restatement (Second) of Torts §402A, comment k (1965) and its applicability to design defect claims
  • Are devices treated the same way as pharmaceuticals?
  • Why isn’t there a duty to warn the patient directly?
    • Discussion of the learned intermediary doctrine
  • The debate about Lance - how did that case change the landscape of pharma/device law and what are the parameters to which it is subject?
  • What does Lance mean by “too harmful to be used by anyone” and how does it affect prescription drugs and devices?

Recorded during a live webinar in November 2015.
