West Virginia Drug Recall Lawyers
In some cases, drugs may be recalled once they are discovered to be dangerous or defective. However, this is not always the case and drugs are allowed to stay on the market and be prescribed by any doctor. We can assist clients in determining if a lawsuit is appropriate in their case, whether the drug has been recalled or not.
A defective drug lawsuit can be filed against the pharmaceutical company that produced the drug in question. The drug must be shown to have been harmful beyond the scope of their warnings. Drugs may produce side effects, for example, that are not listed on the package and which cause serious health issues.
When we begin the process of constructing your defective medication lawsuit, we will need to collect medical records and other documents that show the negative consequences you have experienced as a result of this drug. Though this may seem like an invasion of your privacy, it is essential that we have this information and you are willing to discuss these facts in open court if you want your lawsuit to be successful.
Any type of defective drug can directly or indirectly cause a range of injuries and conditions, including brain injuries, nerve injuries, spinal cord injuries, infections, sepsis, organ damage, heart attacks and strokes. Unfortunately, they can even bring about the wrongful death of an individual.
Prescription and Medication Errors
A pharmacist is responsible for providing patients with the correct type of drug. A doctor is responsible for providing the patient with the correct drug for the symptoms, along with proper dosing instructions. Unfortunately, a medication error or medical error can occur, leaving a patient injured due to the negligence of a doctor or pharmacist. We handle these types of cases for clients who have suffered serious injuries.
