Drug safety is essential for patients. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approves new drugs for sale. Patients trust the approval process will ensure medications are safe for their intended use. Many drugs help patients live longer and healthier. However, far too many dangerous and defective drugs are approved for patient use. Too many drugs should either not be approved or should carry additional warnings so consumers can make an informed decision.
Although FDA approved, many dangerous drugs are sold without adequate testing. In some cases, drug makers actually hide test results showing major health risks. Bad drugs can cause serious injury or death to hundreds or thousands of patients throughout the United States before the danger is revealed. For too many patient families, the truth comes far too late.Drug Injury Claims are Complex
Drug companies make millions of dollars in profits before the medical community or public discovers a medication is dangerously defective. Once discovered, drug companies then hire teams of lawyers to defeat injury claims.
Most lawsuits against drug makers end up in Federal Court. When many similar cases are filed in multiple Federal Courts, they will often be consolidated before a single judge for pre-trial purposes. This process is known as multi-district litigation. If you are seeking legal counsel for a drug injury claim, you should ask potential attorneys if they routinely handle cases in Federal Courts throughout the United States. We have that experience. We represent clients in Federal Court. We have actively represented our injured Alabama clients in multi-district litigation.
Defective drug injury claims also involve experts and medical specialists. The medical science can be complex. Federal Courts hold expert witnesses to high standards. Your case can be won or lost with these specialized witnesses. If you are seeking legal counsel for a drug injury claim, you should ask potential attorneys if they routinely work with experts and medical professionals in complex cases. Ask if the attorney has been through the process in Federal Court to challenge or defend important expert witnesses. We have been through that process. We have worked with expert witnesses in complex cases involving defective products.
Defective drug claims involve real people with heartbreaking injuries. Sadly, some law firms mass advertise for cases and then treat their clients like numbers. We believe that is wrong. Justice is personal. We know our clients. We study their injuries. If you are seeking legal counsel for a drug injury claim, you should ask potential attorneys if they will personally work on your case.
Our philosophy of preparing every case applies to bad drug cases as well. We have pursued justice for our Alabama clients in multiple courts throughout the United States.Current Drug Investigations and Claims
