Why Do You Need a Lawyer After a Drug Injury?

Whether you’re taking a prescription or over-the-counter medication, you expect it to help you manage your symptoms and treat your illness. But in their pursuit of profits, drug companies sometimes release medications that are unsafe. That happens when they fail to rigorously test their products, or when they’re aware of potential side effects but fail to report them.

The consequences of drug injuries can be devastating for the people who suffer them. Victims may experience severe complications, including organ damage, severe bleeding, and even the development of certain types of cancer. Drug injury victims often require extensive medical care and treatments, including surgeries, to reverse some of the damage that they suffer after taking dangerous medications.

Getting compensation for drug injuries should be straightforward, but drug companies and their insurers often deny responsibility and refuse to pay victims money for their medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. At Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough, we believe that victims have the right to pursue maximum compensation for everything they’ve been through, and that’s why we fight for people who were hurt by negligent pharmaceutical companies.

If you don’t have a lawyer on your side, your claim may not be given the attention it deserves, or you may be offered a lowball settlement that doesn’t come close to covering your expenses. But our drug injury lawyers will make sure the other side knows how your life was affected by their dangerous medication, and we’ll fight to help you get fair compensation.
