Orange County Defective Drug Lawyer
When illness or injury result from taking dangerous medication, victims are owed financial compensation by those responsible. To get the settlement you need, work with an Orange County defective drug lawyer.
You take medication to improve your health—not make it worse. The truth of that statement seems obvious enough, but unfortunately, every year defective drugs make it to market and harm the health of the people depending on them. Victims are left with new medical issues, expensive medical bills, and the frightening uncertainty of not knowing what to do next.
If you’ve been hurt by bad medication in some way, you can hold the negligent drug manufacturer accountable and receive the compensation your recovery requires in the process. To find out if you have a case and what it could be worth, consult with an Orange County defective drug lawyer from Dickson Kohan & Bablove, LLP.
What Is a Defective Drug?
Part of knowing if you have a case for compensation is knowing if the drug that harmed you was truly defective. A defective drug is one that either has been manufactured incorrectly or has an undisclosed side effect.
In the first case, the company that made the drug made one of several possible errors during production:
- Too much of the active ingredient, leading to an overdose
- Too little of the active ingredient, making the drug ineffective
- The inclusion of an incorrect component, leading to any number of possible health hazards
In the second case, the manufacturer knew about a potentially dangerous side effect but chose to cover up this information in order to get the drug on the market. This is especially negligent behavior as it prioritizes profits over customer health.
Your Orange County defective drug lawyer will help you determine which scenario applies to your case and whether you have grounds to seek compensation through a personal injury lawsuit.
Compensation for Bad Medication
Taking a defective drug can easily lead to serious illnesses and injuries in addition to the health issues you were taking the medication for in the first place. Whoever was responsible for the defect owes you a settlement that covers all of the financial losses and non-economic damages you experience as a result.
Your Orange County defective drug lawyer will work closely with both you and your healthcare team to assess what your full recovery will cost and identify all of the ways that your life will be negatively impacted:
- Lost income and diminished earning capacity
- Cost of medical care and treatment
- Transportation and caregiver expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Lost sexual function and damage done to your personal relationships
- Decreased quality of life
