Last year there was a tragic outbreak of meningitis across the country. Tennessee was one of the states that was hit the hardest by the breakout. There has been some recent developments in the case. Specifically, the company that manufactured the defective compound has filed bankruptcy. The bankruptcy court has ruled that the company responsible for making the defective compound is insolvent. This is obviously unfortunate to many of those who have been harmed by the defective medical compound.
However, Tennessee law provides a way for victims of the outbreak to recover through other means including being able to recover from the sellers of these defective products. Victims are able to recover from the hospitals, medical clinics, or other sellers of these products. Tennessee law allows the victims in products liability cases to recover for their losses even when the manufacturer of these products is declared bankrupt. Attorney Jim Higgins was recently interviewed to talk about the updates in the meningitis cases. You can learn more about the meningitis outbreak cases below.
