Riverside Defective Drug Lawyer
Don’t allow a drug company to get away with marketing dangerous medication that left you injured or ill. Find out how to get compensated by consulting with a Riverside defective drug lawyer.
We take medication to improve our health, so when a drug causes harm instead, it can be an incredible surprise. Even more surprising can be the health complications and increased medical bills that result.
If you were hurt or made ill by a defective drug, the responsible party owes you compensation for what you’ve been through. Getting a fair settlement will require experienced legal representation, however, and a Riverside defective drug lawyer from Dickson Kohan & Bablove, LLP can provide you with exactly that.
What Is a Defective Drug?
Any drug that made you severely ill or caused you physical harm could be considered a defective drug. However, drug companies put warnings on their products, so this does not always apply in all circumstances. To be considered a defective drug, you need to have suffered harm without being warned of the side effects or interactions.
For example, if a drug gave you a heart attack and you were not warned of that possibility, you could sue the drug manufacturer. Obviously, these cases are often complicated, making it wise to speak with a Riverside defective drug lawyer as early in the proceedings as possible.
Who’s Liable for Bad Medication?
Once retained, we will investigate both the drug company and the side effects that you suffered. By understanding every aspect of what happened, we can determine who was negligent and therefore liable for your injuries.
After determining negligence, we will gather evidence to prove your case and increase the likelihood of recovering full financial damages for your losses and expenses.
Calculating Damages for a Defective Drug Illness or Injury
Your Riverside defective drug lawyer can help you get the most for your injuries. To determine what your claim is worth, we will review all of your financial losses, which could include any of the following:
- Wage losses
- Caregiver expenses
- Cost of medication and medical equipment
- Alternative treatments and physical therapy
- Surgeries and other procedures
- Transportation expenses
In many cases, we will also ask for non-economic damages which cover your pain and suffering and how your quality of life has been negatively affected. A jury may also award punitive damages as a way to punish negligent drug companies or healthcare providers.
Negotiating a Fair Settlement
It may be possible to settle your claim outside of court. Your Riverside defective drug lawyer will build a strong case that clearly demonstrates the at-fault party’s negligence and why you deserve compensation.
A demand letter will be created and sent to the other party for review. If they counteroffer, negotiations can commence and continue until an agreement is reached. We will present any offers to you along with our recommendation. You will be the final authority on whether to settle.
If you don’t like their offer, going to court will become your best recourse. Our firm will continue to represent you throughout the trial proceedings and ensure that you are well-informed and prepared for what’s ahead.
