When medicine lets you down and leaves you sick or injured, you can seek a settlement to cover your losses. Find out if you have grounds for a case by contacting a Milwaukee defective drug lawyer.
Generally speaking, people take medication to improve their health. Sometimes, however, drug manufacturers fail to maintain proper standards and drugs make it to market that actually cause illness and injury to those who take them. When this happens, the parties responsible can—and should—be held accountable.
If you’ve been hurt by bad medication, whether it was prescription or over the counter, you can seek justice through financial compensation. A Milwaukee defective drug lawyer from the Law Offices of Gary Greenberg can help you determine what your case is worth and how best to get the settlement your recovery demands.
What Makes Medication Defective?
Not all medication-related injuries qualify as defective drug injuries. For example, if you took a medication that listed high blood pressure as a potential side effect, you would not be able to later sue the manufacturer if you developed high blood pressure.
However, sometimes drug manufacturers prioritize their profits over consumer health and either push drugs through testing too quickly or fail to disclose potentially dangerous side effects. When this happens, they become liable for any negative health consequences you experience as a result of taking the medication, and your Milwaukee defective drug lawyer can help you take them to account.
When Drug Recalls Fail to Happen
When extremely adverse side effects are discovered, a drug recall should occur, usually with the help of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Unfortunately, many drug manufacturers will only initiate a recall if they believe the expense of the potential personal injury lawsuits they face will outweigh the potential profits they can make by keeping the drug on the market.
This is just one more reason to file a civil suit seeking damages when you’ve been hurt by bad medication. Not only do you deserve compensation for what you’ve been through, but you can help stop the same thing from happening to someone else.
Compensation for Bad Medication
Your demand for compensation should take into account all of the financial losses and non-economic damages that resulted from taking the drug in question. Your Milwaukee defective drug lawyer will help you uncover all of the damages you have experienced so that the settlement you receive is both fair and comprehensive.
These are just a few of the items that you might be able to recover funds for:
Current and future medical care, procedures, and checkups
Lost wages, income, and earning potential
Medical equipment and medication
Pain and suffering
Lost enjoyment of life
