Defective Pharmaceuticals and Medications
The prescription drug industry is worth hundreds of billions of dollars and is tremendously lucrative for drug companies. While all drugs must be approved by the Food and Drug Administration before they arrive on pharmacy shelves, we still routinely learn about the harm caused by certain prescription drugs.
Birth defects. Diabetes. Excessive bleeding. Stroke. Even cancer. All of these have been linked to some very popular drugs.
Those who are harmed by a drug should demand accountability from the company responsible for the medication. Patients must be adequately warned about the risks associated with the medications they choose to take. It’s the only way we can make informed decisions about our health.
Why File a Defective Drug Lawsuit?
If you’ve been seriously harmed by a pharmaceutical drug, you’ve suffered physically, emotionally and financially. A defective drug lawsuit may be the only way for you to get the compensation you need to move on with your life.
The medical costs of hospital visits and treatments can be staggering. It’s a cost you shouldn’t have to bear. The company that made the drug that harmed you needs to be held accountable.
By hiring an attorney to file a case on your behalf, you may be able to secure compensation for:
- Hospital stays, ambulance rides, medical procedures
- Income you lost when you were unable to work
- The emotional and physical pain and suffering you were put through
At the Flood Law Firm, we always pursue the fullest possible compensation for our clients. We don’t stop until we’ve exhausted all avenues to seek justice.
Choosing the Right Defective Drug Attorney
Pharmaceutical companies are huge enterprises with a staff of skilled attorneys. When you file a claim against them, you can’t rely on just any lawyer to represent you. You need an attorney who has helped people in situations like yours before. You need an attorney who understands how to build the best case possible to seek compensation.
You need an experienced defective drug lawyer.
Some of the conditions studies have linked to certain pharmaceutical drugs go far beyond a typical side effect. These are life-changing and sometimes even fatal complications. If you had known the full extent of the risks, would you have chosen to take the drug?
