McNeil failed to identify this information on the label and provide instructions identifying this information to for the consumer to properly use the medication. 3. Do you think Jurors are sophisticated enough to evaluate and Judge scientific evidence? With this case, I really did not feel that the Jury needed to know additional medical information the facts brought out in trial clearly showed that McNeil was aware of the dangers.
As for other cases, I believe that it should be up to the attorneys to fully break down the information so that the average person can understand it.

Which would be about the same thing as continuing research. As for providing information on the labels, if consumers pay attention to the labels, then yes I think we’ll be better off if corporations provide the information.
