Drug Injury Attorney in Conyers

In 2014, the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA) recalled over 800 pharmaceutical drugs, many because the drugs in question were likely to cause serious adverse health consequences or death. That year was not an outlier; dangerous medications are recalled by the FDA on a regular basis.  So how did these drugs get through FDA approval in the first place? The problem with the FDA is that the government is not perfect, and it doesn’t help when they receive imperfect drug information from the insurance companies.

However, getting FDA approval does not remove a pharmaceutical company’s responsibilities. Drugmakers have a legal duty to ensure that they are only putting reasonably safe products on the market. Unfortunately, many pharmaceutical companies fail to live up to that basic obligation.  Ambitious drug companies sometimes fail to include all the risks of a drug, hoping that their medicine would be more attractive for doctors to prescribe with less risk attached to it. This is completely unacceptable. Drug companies cannot put profits over people.

At MG Law, our top-rated pharmaceutical drug attorneys in Conyers are committed to fighting for the legal rights and financial interests of victims and their families. If you have been hurt by harmful prescription drugs, the drug company may be liable for any damages you incurred. You need to take action to protect yourself: Please contact our experienced GA drug injury attorneys today for a free legal consultation.

Product Liability Claims: Prescription Drugs

As a general rule, lawsuits over defective drugs are brought under an area of law that is called ‘product liability’. If a company markets and sells a dangerous product, that company can and should be held liable for any resulting damages. There are multiple different legal theories by which a drug company could potentially be held liable for selling a dangerous medication, including:

  • Defective design: If a drug has a defective design, it means that the product itself is inherently flawed. The drug is simply unsafe for anyone, and it should have never been put on the market in the first place.
  • Defective manufacturing: With defective manufacturing claims, it could be that the class of drug is safe, but the specific drug you received was poorly made. For example, a certain batch of the drug may have been contaminated during the production.
  • Failure to warn (inadequate labelling): In dangerous drug cases, many claims are brought against companies due to their failure to warn consumers about the potential adverse side effects. Drug companies are legally required to properly market and label their drugs so that consumers are made fully aware of all potential negative side effects. If the drug company failed to provide adequate warnings, or misrepresented the drug during its marketing campaign, it could be held liable for a patient’s injuries.

Challenging the Drug Company in Court

It is extremely difficult to hold big drug companies liable for their misconduct. Indeed, defective drug cases are more challenging than most other legal cases, because most don’t require “experts” to prove your case. In this kind of case, we need to bring in a medical professional to show how the drug scientifically affected your body, causing harm. Of course, on the other side, you can expect that the drug corporation will have their own experts who will try to dissolve your claim and remove themselves of any responsibility.

To prevail in a defective drug case, you are going to need a strong legal team to go up against a large pharmaceutical company. When our Georgia drug injury lawyers take on your case, we will be sure to get started with an immediate investigation. Our team will put together a strong legal claim so that you and your family can hold the negligent drug maker liable for their misconduct. Specifically, our top-rated Georgia pharmaceutical injury lawyers will:

  • Conduct a comprehensive investigation of your case;
  • Thoroughly document relevant evidence;
  • Work closely with medical professionals and drug industry experts;
  • Use legal tools, such as subpoenas to get access to evidence help by the drugmaker;
  • Negotiate with the drug manufacturer and their insurance company; and
  • If necessary, file a drug injury lawsuit on your behalf.

Compensation Available to Drug Injury Victims

Victims of dangerous drugs are entitled to financial compensation for the full extent of their losses. Unfortunately, dangerous prescription drugs can cause an enormous amount of harm to innocent people. To make matters even more challenging, the big drug companies often do not offer victims anything close to what they actually deserve. If you or a loved one was hurt by a drug, you need to work with a qualified Georgia drug injury lawyer who can help you hold the drug company accountable. Depending on the underlying circumstances of your prescription drug injury case, our attorneys in Conyers can help you get money for:

  • Medical expenses;
  • Costs associated with physical rehabilitation;
  • Required mental health counseling;
  • Long-term disability (LTD);
  • Lost wages;
  • Diminished earning capacity;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Mental anguish;
  • Emotional distress;
  • Disfigurement; and
  • Loss of life enjoyment.

Wrongful Death Because of Prescription Drugs

Unfortunately, in far too many cases, defective medications lead to fatalities. If your family member passed away, and you believe that a dangerous pharmaceutical drug contributed to their death, you need to contact an experienced Georgia wrongful death attorney immediately. The state of Georgia has a wrongful death statute, under which you may have legal rights. You need to get justice for your family member by holding the drug company responsible and getting compensation to support your family.
