Dangerous Drugs

At their best, prescription drugs can help save lives and ease the pain and suffering that comes with many medical conditions. At their worst, they can cause more harm than good and sometimes end in death. When drugs turn dangerous, Walch Law is here to help. We help victims of dangerous drugs recover for their injuries and loss and can help you.

Dangerous Drugs Injuries & Lawsuits

When there has been a serious personal injury or death because of a dangerous drug, who are you suing? In most cases, you are suing the pharmaceutical company that produced the drug. In some cases you may also be suing the doctor that prescribed you the drugs as well. Personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits of this nature are extremely complicated and require working with medical and other experts to ensure that we are presenting your strongest case possible. Potential drug-related pharmaceutical injuries include:

  • Cancer
  • Depression
  • Blood clots
  • Heart attacks
  • Strokes
  • Birth defects
  • Embolism
  • Bradarrhythmis complications
  • Artioventricular blocks
  • Hematomas
  • Suicide
  • Death

Depending on the drug, pharmaceutical cases are handled individually and as a class action. Available damages in these cases depend on the nature and extent the injuries and the negative impact the drug has had on your life.

What If The Drug Was Withdrawn or Recalled?

Does the fact that a drug was withdrawn or recalled from the mass market impact your ability to sue? The short answer to this common question is no. When a drug company withdraws (stops producing) a drug or recalls (actively and publicly removed from the market) that does not mean that you no longer have a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit against them for the injuries and death they have caused as a result of their dangerous drug. Quite the contrary, withdrawing and/or recalling a drug from the market can help serve to strengthen your case by providing evidence of knowledge that a drug is causing harm instead of good.
