You Can Seek Compensation
It is a drug maker’s responsibility to conduct thorough testing and warn the public and the FDA of the full extent of a drug’s risks. When this does not happen, the individuals and families harmed should consider speaking with an attorney to understand their rights. An experienced pharmaceutical drug attorney can seek compensation for:
- Hospital stays, ambulance rides, medical procedures
- Doctor’s visits
- Future treatments
- Lost income
- Pain and suffering
