Birmingham Defective Drug Lawyer
When you rely on your prescriptions to stay healthy, a defective drug can cost you dearly. Get help with your pursuit of fair compensation from a Birmingham defective medication lawyer.
Most of us have needed medication at some point to treat short-term or chronic illnesses. Unfortunately, those medications can be just as deadly as the conditions they treat, and when you’re not warned about the dangers you’re being exposed to, you deserve compensation if you end up hurt.
A Birmingham defective drug lawyer from the Henry Dailey Law Firm can help you determine whether you have a case and how to approach it. After all, dealing with dangerous drugs can be complicated, especially if you’ll be facing a large manufacturer as you seek compensation.
If you’re not sure you have a case or are unsure of where to start, contact us. We can help you get your case started and win you the compensation you deserve.
The Challenges of a Defective Drug Case
Defective drug cases can be complicated, especially when considering that Alabama doesn’t follow the strict manufacturer liability laws that most states have. Instead, Alabama courts tend to put some of the liability and burden of proof on the consumer.
For example, let’s say you took a new medication, and you became ill with extreme side effects not listed on the package. You would then have to ensure that the drug was as it was when it left the manufacturer—it wasn’t tampered with, it wasn’t made more dangerous, and it was given to you in the right dosage.
On top of this, you’ll need to file a personal injury claim within two years of the incident. But it can take time for symptoms to manifest. As such, you’ll have two years from when the injury was discovered or should have been discovered. That’s still not much time, but a defective drug lawyer in Birmingham can make sure your claim is filed correctly and on time.
Full Compensation for Your Injuries
After covering some of the basic laws you’ll be dealing with, you’ll then need to focus on the value of your case. Knowing how much your claim is worth will be vital, so be sure to review this with a Birmingham defective medication attorney before you begin.
When calculating your damages, don’t forget to include both economic and non-economic damages. Compensation for all types of damages will be important to your recovery, so include any of the following and anything else you’ve suffered because of a defective medicine:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Mental anguish
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
