Product Liability in Respect of Drugs
BMJ (British Medical Journal). 1985 Feb 2; 290(6465): 365-368.
Two professors, one of law and the other of pharmacology, trace the development of English law on compensation for injuries caused by defective drugs and examine the Vaccine Damage Payments Act of 1980, which established a no-fault system of compensation for vaccine injuries for a limited number of diseases. They discuss two possible approaches to handling compensation for drug-induced injuries in the future--use of the law of "strict liability" or creation of a no-fault system. The authors propose a model no-fault scheme and urge that the principal interested parties develop such a no-fault system without waiting for government action. (KIE abstract)
