A drug defect can destroy your health, leaving you suffering for someone else’s mistake. Take action with a lawyer to get compensated for your suffering.
Your medication may be an important part of maintaining your health. Your medicine may be part of your daily routine, especially for those with diabetes, heart conditions, or other chronic illnesses. Because your medication is so important to you, the impacts of a dangerous drug can be extremely serious, and even deadly.
But what can you do when you’re sick because someone else made a mistake? The personal injury lawyers at Monge & Associates can help. Your dangerous drugs lawyer can help you gather evidence of wrongdoing and seek compensation for your suffering.
Who’s Liable for a Defective Drug?
When you’ve been hurt by a dangerous drug, one of your first concerns is identifying who caused your injuries. The person or party responsible for your suffering may be financially liable for your experience and illness.
In many cases, dangerous drugs are dangerous because of contamination or other mistakes during the manufacturing process. The manufacturer may have failed to test the medication and ensure it was safe for consumption.
In other cases, it may have been labeled and sold incorrectly. The company that sold the dangerous drugs may have failed to warn about dangerous side effects, or they may have labeled the drug as something it isn’t. The company can often be held responsible for this mistake.
Doctors and pharmacists are also sometimes responsible for mistakes in medication if they improperly prescribed it, or if they failed to fill the prescription correctly. Even if the medication does what it should, a high dose or other careless mistakes can harm you.
Compensation for Drug Defect Victims
After suffering a serious injury or illness, you may need compensation to overcome your suffering. A drug defect can be expensive to overcome. That can lead to economic damages, or the financial costs of your injuries, accruing quickly.
But what about non-economic damages? These intangible types of mental and emotional suffering can be just as costly. You may need to speak with your lawyer for help calculating these damages based on the impact to your health and the severity of your suffering.
Below are just a few examples of things you may be compensated for as a result of your suffering because of a dangerous drug:
- Medical bills
- Lost income
- Household services, if you’re unable to live independently now
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
