Drug Injury Lawsuit: Strategies for Obtaining Just Compensation
Too often, drug manufacturers are more concerned with their bottom line than with providing safe products to their customers. As a result, they produce pharmaceuticals and medical devices without first engaging in proper testing or by using fraudulent marketing practices. These actions by drug manufacturers result in the approval of drugs and medical devices by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the use of these products by doctors, and ultimately, in injuries to patients.
Recently, for example, the prescription medication Pradaxa has been linked to a variety of drug injuries in patients across the globe. As a result, it has come to light that Pradaxa’s manufacturer only got the drug approved by the FDA and other government agencies through the use of biased and incomplete studies.
Should I Seek a Pharmaceutical Attorney?
Despite how clear it may seem to you that a prescription drug, such as Pradaxa, caused you or a loved one to suffer a pharmaceutical injury, any type of litigation is very complex. Pharmaceutical companies invest a lot of money and time into vigorously fighting any type of legal claim made against them.
Our attorneys are especially familiar with how hard such companies fight, because several of Doyle Raizner’s attorneys have previously worked for large defense firms, defending the same types of lawsuits for pharmaceutical companies.
What Can I Do About a Pradaxa Drug Injury?
If you believe that you or a loved one is suffering or has suffered an injury related to Pradaxa, the first and most important thing to do is to inform your doctor and seek medical assistance.
Once the medical condition is under control, the next step is to make sure that you gather and safeguard all of your medical documentation. Keep any containers of Pradaxa and make a note of the pharmacies where you had your prescriptions filled.
Next, it is important to promptly seek legal advice for any potential drug injury claim. When it comes to Pradaxa lawsuits, our firm provides unyielding determination in fighting the misdoings of the manufacturer.
