Deaths and injuries caused by defective drugs simply should not happen. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is charged with ensuring that medications have undergone sufficient testing before they are released on the market. When drug manufacturers skew or alter test results - or bypass testing altogether - in order to rush a drug to market, the result may be that ordinary people become guinea pigs by default.
If your loved one died or if you suffered serious harm after taking a drug that had not been properly tested - or worse, had been found defective in testing, but was sold under a veil of deceit - you are right to seek the advice of an attorney. Whether a medication was sold over the counter or through a pharmacy, Chambers & Aholt, LLP, can help you determine whether ham to you or your family was due to the negligence of a drug manufacturer. Currently, we are representing clients for injuries they sustained while taking the blood thinner Pradaxa and the birth control medication known as Yaz. We also work in conjunction with other firms to review claims concerning Actos, Byetta, Granuflo, Januvia and Victoza.
Our Georgia products liability law firm has helped a number of people obtain appropriate compensation after they or their loved ones had suffered serious harm through consumption of dangerous or defective drugs. We can help you bring a lawsuit against a manufacturer or vendor.
In some cases, our clients who became ill or lost loved ones in fatal drug-related incidents learn that the prescribing physician or pharmacist committed an error with an otherwise safe drug. Did the doctor neglect to screen for allergies or prescribe the wrong amount? Did the pharmacist misread the prescription and issue the person the wrong drug or dosage? Did a nurse in a hospital or nursing home issue the wrong patient's medication?
A detailed investigation can help get the answer that you seek most fervently: why. You may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and/or expenses that a family bears after the sudden death of a loved one. Contact Chambers & Aholt, LLP, online, or call us at 404-253-7860 to set up a free consultation to discuss your legal options.
We handle these cases on a contingent fee basis. If there is no recovery no fees are owed.
