At Monge & Associates, we understand the dangers of medications like these, and we’re here to help. Reach out to a South Carolina dangerous drugs lawyer for guidance for your lawsuit.
Who’s Liable for Dangerous Drugs?
When you’re hurt by your medication, you need to know who’s liable for your South Carolina defective drug claim. Your first step is to determine how the drug was dangerous and who caused those conditions.
For example, you may have been injured because the medication was defective. Manufacturing errors can lead to dangerous contamination. When this happens, you may have grounds to seek compensation from the manufacturer, distributor, or other groups, depending on the cause.
Some South Carolina residents may have grounds to sue because their pharmacist failed to provide the right dosage or even the right medication. If your pharmacist didn’t take the time to explain your medication’s use or how to use it safely, they may be liable for your injuries.
But the details of your claim can vary, and you may be unsure where to turn. Your lawyer can help you determine who’s at fault when you’re struggling to move forward.
Compensation for South Carolina Injury Victims
When you’re hurt by a defective drug, you also need to know what compensation you’re due for your pain. South Carolina law details both economic and non-economic damages. These damages cover both your financial losses and the intangible suffering you’ve experienced.
Non-economic damages can be especially hard to calculate. These damages cover the mental and emotional suffering you’ve experienced because of the accident. If you’re unsure what your claim is worth, reach out to a lawyer for the tools to calculate your claim.
Below are some of the damages South Carolina residents may recover for their claims:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Household services, if they’re now unable to live independently
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
