Arizona Bad Drug Lawsuits & Arizona Defective Medical Device Cases
Filing a civil lawsuit against a corporation, individual, pharmaceutical company, or medical device manufacturer is the legal solution for resolving matters between the injured party and those who are responsible for causing harm. Civil lawsuits usually involve a plaintiff asking a judge or jury to order the defendants in the case to provide financial compensation to cover the cost of the victim’s losses, which could include medical expenses, lost wages, and the loss of being able to earn a living in the future along with intangible damages including pain, suffering, mental anxiety and emotional distress associated with the injury.
The injured party (the plaintiff) must first determine if they have a valid case to seek relief (financial compensation) from one or more defendants, who allegedly caused the damages. Next, the plaintiff must file a complaint with the appropriate court and list all factual and legal reasons why the defendant is legally responsible for the harm they caused the plaintiff.
When the defendant or defendants are served, and receive their lawsuit documentation, lawyers on both sides will begin considering motions, requesting the court to issue one or more orders. Next, the discovery process and pretrial conferences involving the judge will begin where attorneys will request that the judge accepts or bars specific evidence, arguments and witnesses, based on strategies designed to win the case. The wrongful death lawsuit or personal injury case will likely be resolved through a trial and judgment or through negotiations in an out-of-court settlement.
