Protecting The Disabled And Injured Since 1974

Defective Drugs

You Trust Your Medicine To Make You Better — Not Worse

Modern medicine has had a huge impact on Americans’ quality of life. It allows us to recover from illnesses that were previously hopeless. For this reason, most people trust their doctors and the medicine they prescribe completely. However, in some cases, the drug companies that produce the medicines we all take are irresponsible and create defective drugs. When this happens, remember: You have legal recourse. The lawyers at the Law Offices of Clark, James, Hanlin & Hunt, LLC, can help.

At the Law Offices of Clark, James, Hanlin & Hunt, LLC, we have handled many types of defective drug cases. Common medications we have encountered in Alabama defective drug law are the prescription blood thinners XARELTO and Pradaxa.

Pradaxa and XARELTO are both blood thinners that can cause uncontrollable bleeding in some people, causing serious harm or even death.

Hold Drug Companies Legally Responsible

Pursuing a lawsuit against drug companies that produce defective drugs is an extensive process. It requires steps like:

  • Gathering evidence. It is important to have as much documentation as possible when preparing a lawsuit. This can mean doctor’s records, police records and more.
  • Initiating contact with the drug company. A lawyer can contact the company for you, allowing you to take a step back and focus on recovery.
  • Negotiating a settlement. In many cases, these types of cases are settled outside of court with a financial offer. Your lawyer can help you evaluate which offers are appropriate to consider.
