Long Island Defective Drug Lawyer
Medications are supposed to make you better, not worse. Unfortunately, defective drugs can injure you and put your life at risk. If that has happened to you, contact a Long Island defective medication lawyer.
Today’s new drugs can become tomorrow’s legal actions when medications injure patients. You trusted the drug manufacturer to ensure the quality and safety of its product, and you trusted health agencies to investigate potential dangers prior to the drug’s approval. If you’ve been injured by a defective drug, you have a right to file a personal injury claim.
While you may be hesitant to trust someone else after what you’ve experienced, you can be sure that the attorneys at Siler & Ingber, LLP have done their research. We’ve likely already heard about the defective drug you took, and we know how to win you the compensation you need to recover.
Your Long Island defective drug lawyer will help you understand the full value of your claim and fight for justice on your behalf.
Companies have a duty to protect their consumers from harm. When they don’t, a product liability case could arise. Drug companies have become infamous for their willingness to put dangerous medications on the consumer market, which can lead to serious injury or illness for anyone who ingests them.
Although drugs undergo a rigorous approval process with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), manufacturers are still found negligent for any products that cause injury to consumers outside of clearly labeled side effects.
Your Long Island defective drug attorney will maximize the value of your claim by helping you identify everyone who played a role in producing and marketing the dangerous medication that hurt your health.
In addition to drug manufacturers, you may also be able to name the following parties:
- Sales representatives
- Physicians, hospitals, or clinics
Compensation for Long Island Defective Drug Claims
Unless you’re a medical expert, you can’t know how a drug might harm you unless a health professional tells you. And you trust pharmaceutical companies and the FDA to protect your health. When that trust is broken, you should be compensated for the resulting hardships.
If you have been injured by a defective drug, you’re entitled to full compensation for your losses, including any of the following that apply to your claim:
- Present and future medical bills
- Time away from work or inability to go back to work
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish and cognitive therapy
- Lost interest in hobbies or activities you once enjoyed
- Reduced overall quality of life
A lawyer from our firm will be able to assess your claim and determine its full value. It doesn’t matter how big the at-fault drug company is, we won’t be satisfied with anything less than full compensation.
