Brooklyn Defective Drug Lawyer
When dangerous medication leaves you ill or injured, you deserve compensation so that you can afford your recovery. Find out how to handle your claim by working with a Brooklyn defective drug lawyer.
When you rely on medication to improve your health, the last thing you want is for the drug to not work—or worse, cause an injury or illness. While this isn’t something that we hear about every day, it happens more often than many people realize.
If you or a loved one has been injured due to defective drug use, contact a Brooklyn defective drug lawyer from Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP. A lawyer from our firm can help you through the impending insurance battle to get you the full compensation you deserve.
Fighting the Drug Companies
Even if you have concrete evidence that your injuries were sustained from direct use of a defective drug, your case may not turn out how you want—or need—it to. Drug companies and their insurers generally try to settle injury cases quickly and for as little money as possible, which could leave you stuck with the medical bills and other losses.
Your Brooklyn defective drug lawyer wants to make sure that doesn’t happen. In order to do that, your attorney will fully investigate your claim, including talking to the manufacturers of the drug, your physicians, and expert witnesses such as chemists. We need to understand how your injury or illness was caused by the medication and what the source of the defect was.
You could try to fight the drug and insurance companies on your own, but our experienced attorneys understand the legal loopholes and red tape employed by these entities. We can provide you with the practical experience you need to recover the compensation you deserve. Even better, your attorney will handle all of this communication for you so that you can focus on recovery.
Compensation for Medication Injuries
A defective drug can lead to all sorts of financial issues, including mounds of hospital bills, lost wages from being out of work, and many other monetary expenses. While insurance companies may cover some of these costs, they won’t help you identify all the other damages you may be entitled to.
Outside of these economic expenses are awards known as non-economic damages. These are damages that don’t have a direct monetary amount associated with them; instead, they represent how your quality of life has declined due to your injury or illness:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
- Mental anguish
- Reputable damage
- Emotional distress
- Lost enjoyment of life
