Causes of Drug Injuries

There are numerous drug injury causes, ranging from improper dosage to undisclosed and harmful side effects. While the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is required to thoroughly evaluate all drugs before they are released, sometimes dangerous products slip through. When this occurs, the FDA may recall the drug and put out a warning.

Drug injuries are also caused by inadequate medical care by nurses and doctors. Sometimes, a doctor will prescribe a medication without fully evaluating a patient. The new medication may not treat the patient’s illness. They could experience harmful side effects rather than relief.

A doctor might also prescribe an improper dosage, resulting in harm. In addition, nurses may administer drugs improperly in hospitals or fail to submit prescriptions to pharmacies properly.

Other causes of drug injuries:

  • Dangerous Medical Devices
  • Drug Recalls
  • False Advertising
  • Severe Side Effects

Your Legal Options in Drug Injury Cases

When pursuing a personal injury lawsuit, there is a certain burden of proof to meet. As a result, every drug injury case must establish two elements. First, you must prove that a drug or medication had harmful effects that were not disclosed or that were not expected. Once you establish this, you must prove that you sustained an injury from the drug.

You must convince a judge or jury that your injury was the direct result of negligence or recklessness.

Drug injury cases can be complicated. Our experienced attorneys are familiar with the court documents and legal processes necessary to reach successful outcomes. By seeking legal advice as soon as possible, you may be able to obtain compensation for the losses you sustained that another person or company caused.

Seeking Compensation for Drug Injuries

When filing a lawsuit for sustained injuries, there are a number of losses to pursue.

Perhaps you missed work as a result of your injuries. Or maybe you need funds to pay for medical costs. You deserve to be compensated by those responsible.

In a personal injury lawsuit, you may seek funds to recover:

  • Medical expenses
  • Physical limitations
  • Lost income
  • Loss of consortium, or loss of relationships
  • Pain and suffering
  • Disfigurement

When a person is killed by a drug, their family may wish to pursue the following losses through a wrongful death lawsuit:

  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Lost prospective income
  • Loss of financial contribution
  • Loss of comfort and society
