Drug and Product Injury

We trust our doctors with our lives. Unfortunately, companies that manufacture the drugs and medical devices doctors give us sometimes market their products too aggressively and put their profit margin above the safety of the people who will be treated with the drugs and devices these companies make. Although these companies are supposed to rigorously test their products to ensure that they are safe for use, they sometimes fail in their duty to do this. The consequences of these companies’ negligent actions can be catastrophic, causing permanent injury or even death. If these companies have failed to notify the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the public about the possible side effects of their drugs and devices, they may be liable for the harm that these drugs and devices cause.

What kinds of recovery are available in a drug recall or defective medical device case?

You may be entitled to receive compensation for lost income, lost companionship and comfort, pain and suffering, medical and funeral bills, and, in some cases, punitive damages to punish the wrongdoer.

What should I do if I or my loved one has used one of these drugs or devices?
  • Ask your doctor about the drug or device that you have used and be sure to follow the advice your doctor gives you with regard to the drug or device. Your health and safety are the most important concerns.
  • Contact the North and South Carolina recalled drug and defective medical device attorneys at Grimes Teich Anderson LLP immediately so that they can begin to evaluate the unique circumstances of your case as soon as possible.
  • Keep track of all expenses you have incurred as a result of using the drug or device. These expenses may include lost income, funeral and medical expenses, and any other expenses that relate to the effects of the drug or device.
  • DO NOT sign anything in which you agree to waive any rights you have.
  • DO NOT accept any settlement from the at-fault party or anyone representing the at fault party.
  • DO NOT discuss your case on any social media websites such as Facebook, MySpace or Twitter.
What shouldn’t I just accept a settlement offered by the at fault party?

Drug and medical device manufacturers make incredible profits from having their products used by patients. Because of this, it is often cheaper for these companies to offer to pay a small amount to those who have suffered, or may suffer in the future, from the use of their products than it is for the companies to fully compensate victims for the harm that their drugs and medical devices cause. It is important to remember that the full effects of these drugs and products may not appear immediately. Although the results may be relatively mild now, they could become much worse in the future. Therefore, you need to have an attorney who understands the possible future consequences of these drugs and devices. The North and South Carolina drug recall and defective medical device attorneys at Grimes Teich Anderson LLP can help you determine what these future consequences may be, and to be sure that you have the opportunity to be fully compensated under the law for the harm they may have caused you. We may associate counsel from other Law Firms that have specific expertise regarding a particular drug or medical device to help you obtain the maximum recovery allowed by law.
