A Lawsuit Filing in Minnesota
A Poligrip case is among the most sought after. The Poligrip case is specifically aimed to the makers of Poligrip, a popular mouthwash that is used by millions of people globally. Such lawsuits are often instituted by people who have encountered the above said symptom and want to pursue a quest in compensation. It has been seen that people have found themselves emotionally scarred after consuming Poligrip products, which may be due to some toxic chemicals used in the manufacturing process. The company in no way backs such allegations and has taken the initiative to create a legal defence fund for its consumers. The main goal of the company is to prove that their products are as good as their famous counterparts, and that the claims being put forth by the consumer and media are completely unfounded.
The Poligrip case was brought forward by the American Society of Trial Lawyers (ASDL), a body that is dedicated to providing free consultation services for cases that have an impact on the justice system.
The lawyer assisting the client will carefully look into all aspects of the case and advise his or her client on the best course of action. In the case of poligrip lawsuit, the defendant’s manufacturer, GlaxoSmithKline, the maker of Poligrip, has come under fire from several lawsuits. The high levels of zinc used in Poligrip have caused serious harm to many consumers around the world.
The defendant is required to pay damages to those who have fallen ill as a result of their patients taking Poligrip, or eating and drinking from containers that have been contaminated with Poligrip residue.
The defendant also faces hefty fines and corrective actions that could involve major changes in the production process. In fact, the situation has become so bad that the FDA has threatened to shut down the entire manufacturing plant. The attorney assisting the patient in the Poligrip case has filed a lawsuit against GlaxoSmithKline and is seeking compensation for their role in causing this large amounts of exposure to Poligrip patients.
This is not the only case where GlaxoSmithKline has had to face lawsuits related to their product.
Another lawsuit was brought against GlaxoSmithKline relating to high levels of lead in its poligrip products. The lead in the paint thinner was a violation of the Toxic Substances Control Act. Many of these lawsuits have been resolved with the consent of the manufacturer of Poligrip, but it is clear that there are thousands of potential victims of Poligrip poisoning. This case, however, is the largest known case brought against GlaxoSmithKline. It may not be entirely clear what role, if any, GlaxoSmithKline played in the deaths of these patients, but thousands of lawsuits like the ones against GlaxoSmithKline, still exist.
While the lawsuits filed by the families of the deceased may be different than GlaxoSmithKline’s role in directly causing zinc poisoning through its poligrip products, they certainly do share many of the same similarities.
The plaintiffs argue that GlaxoSmithKline was aware of the danger of exposure to low levels of lead and did not warn consumers about the risk of high levels of lead in its denture creams. In addition, they argue that GlaxoSmithKline did not take action to change their production processes to ensure that the lowest possible amount of lead was used in its poligrip products and did not test its denture creams to make sure they did not contain high levels of lead. The plaintiffs further argue that GlaxoSmithKline knew that it was possible for individuals to suffer from the effects of lead poisoning while using their denture creams but did not take steps to protect its customers from the dangers. Finally, GlaxoSmithKline did not recall its poligrip products until after the lawsuits had already been filed.
GlaxoSmithKline has acknowledged its responsibility in contributing to the wrongful death of plaintiff’s relative.
In addition to providing a class action suit, GlaxoSmithKline is also attempting to have the case heard by the Minnesota state courts. If the court rules in favor of the plaintiffs, then GlaxoSmithKline will pay damages to the plaintiffs and their families. However, if the court rules against GlaxoSmithKline, then it will be forced to pay damages to the plaintiff’s relatives that died as a direct result of the defendants’ negligence and disregard for the levels of zinc in their poligrip adhesive cream.
