If you have taken a prescription drug that caused you further illness or injury, a defective drug attorney in Tampa could help you obtain maximum compensation for all you have been through.
There are many reasons why a particular drug might become defective or cause more harm than it does good. When this happens, there are several parties that may be at fault if someone becomes seriously injured or ill due to the drug’s faultiness. However, most victims are unable to determine who should be held accountable, particularly if they are still recovering from the impact of the drug.
Fortunately, a Tampa defective drug lawyer at Anderson & Anderson may be able to assist you in getting the justice you deserve. When we take on cases like these, and any injury victim’s case, we work diligently to establish fault and ensure that every loss is accounted for when calculating the value of civil claims.
In product liability claims involving defective drugs, the manufacturer of the pharmaceuticals is nearly always to blame.
In some cases, these developers are acutely aware of the defects but will continue to sell the drug anyway in order to earn a profit. When your doctor is in on it, this may be a case of medical malpractice. These actions leave these parties open to civil litigation in the future. Hopefully, by taking legal action, the drug can then be pulled off of the market.
You may have heard of others who have become severely ill or injured due to certain types of defective drugs, or perhaps you are a victim yourself. Some of the most common defective drugs include:
Figuring out how much your claim is worth is a complicated process, as we need to carefully review every way your life has been damaged by the drug. What’s more, the impact that the defective drug has on your body could continue well into the future, which also needs to be taken into consideration when determining claim value.
With that being said, there are many different losses that you can recover in your claim. These are categorized as either economic or non-economic.
Economic damages include those that pertain to money and finances. These could consist of the damage to your earning capacity, including your loss of salary increases, bonuses, and 401K contributions; your loss of income; the costs of your medical expenses, treatments, and any equipment; and any property damages, if applicable.
Non-economic damages include any loss that does not involve money. Some of the most commonly sought non-economic damages include:
