Manhattan Defective Drug Lawyer

If you took prescription or over-the-counter medication that damaged your health, you might have a case for compensation. Find out how strong your claim is by consulting with a Manhattan drug injury attorney.

Millions of Americans rely on medication to help with all sorts of ailments, but when those drugs end up causing an illness or health problem instead, what happens? How do you determine who was responsible and get them to compensate your losses?

The best way to recover from a health issue caused by a defective drug is to file a claim for compensation. The first step in this process is contacting a Manhattan defective drug lawyer from Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP.

A lawyer is your best option for taking on large drug manufacturing companies and any other parties responsible. We can help you get back on track after your injury or illness. One of the most important responsibilities of your attorney is assessing your situation and identifying who was at fault for the defective drug making its way to you.

Who’s Responsible for Bad Medication?

In defective drug cases, there are often multiple parties at fault. While these multi-fault cases can be tough to sort out, doing so is essential for collecting the full value of your injury claim.

Of course, the manufacturer of the drug could be at fault for any undisclosed side effects or production errors, but other negligent parties could include the following:

  • The testing lab responsible for ensuring the safety of the medication
  • The medical professional who prescribed the drug
  • The hospital or facility that employs the medical professional in question
  • The pharmacy where your prescription was filled

In most defective drug cases, the negligence will be an issue of product liability. However, it’s also possible that your case qualifies as medical malpractice if your doctor or pharmacist knew about the issues with the medication but supplied them to you anyway.

Whichever direction your case needs to go, your Manhattan defective drug attorney will be able to guide you through the process and on to complete compensation.

The Value of Your Injury or Illness

Maximum compensation is the goal, but what goes into calculating the value of a claim? You should expect to recover compensation for all your financial losses, both current and future:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages and earning potential
  • Rehabilitation expenses and medical equipment
  • Any other costs associated with your drug-induced illness or injury

Outside of the monetary expenses, you should also be compensated for how taking the defective drug has negatively impacted your quality of life:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of consortium
  • Reputable damage
  • Lost enjoyment of life
