Drug injury lawsuit cases are brought by injuries caused as the result of a product known to be potentially dangerous which was sold without a proper warning to the consumer. This includes prescription and over-the-counter drugs sold without a warning of the hazards of use with certain other drugs, excessive long-term consumption, possible side effects of use, or withdrawal symptoms that could occur when trying to reduce the dosage or quit the use of a drug altogether.
If you are a part of a large group of people that has been similarly injured by the same defective drug product, you may qualify to start or join a class-action lawsuit. The designer, manufacturer, and others involved in the chain of commerce, including the distribution of the products that caused the injury or illness, can be held liable for injuries and illnesses caused by the defective drug product. There are many benefits to joining a class-action lawsuit, and a qualified drug litigation lawyer can provide the necessary legal advice on whether it would be best to start or join a class-action or pursue your claim as an individual lawsuit--if it's been determined that you do in fact have a legal claim.
A defective drug product is one that causes a physical injury or illness (including psychological and/or mental illness) to a person as the result of a defect in the medication or its labeling.
These products can include prescription pharmaceutical drugs and everyday over-the-counter medications. Sometimes it can take years to discover that a medication could be dangerous or otherwise defective, and this typically occurs after several people have already suffered debilitating injuries or wrongful death due to their use of such products.
If you or a loved one has been injured or has fallen ill due to what you believe is a defective drug product, do not delay in seeking immediate medical attention, as prompt diagnosis and treatment may help to avoid irreparable damage. It is also important to take immediate legal action, as restrictive statutes of limitations can prevent you from collecting the compensation you are entitled. Successful defective drug litigation sends a clear message to the pharmaceutical industry about accountability and consumer safety. For more information, contact a skilled defective drug litigation attorney who is experienced in this area of law.
