How do I make a claim for a drug side effect?
Medications are taken by millions of Americans each year, and unfortunately, many suffer unintended consequences. Pharmaceutical companies are supposed to go through a rigorous approval process prior to distributing their medication. As part of their approval process, drug companies often disclose known side effects to the public. However, sometimes drug companies either fail to disclose certain risks or minimize risks in an effort to get more people to use their medicines, and of course increase revenue and reach of the product and their drug company. If you suffered from one of these unintended or undisclosed side effects, you may be able to file a claim for compensation.
Examples of lawsuits for pharmaceutical side effect injury and malfunctioning medical device claims
- Our drug injury lawyers are currently investigating claims on behalf of patients taking Elmiron for interstitial cystitis, or painful bladder syndrome, who developed eye issues. A recently published study found a possible link between Elmiron and vision problems, including maculopahy, partial or total blindness, pigment changes, and blurry vision. Contact us to see if you qualify to file an Elmiron lawsuit
Zantac - Recent studies found a possible link between increased risk of cancer and use of Zantac. The FDA reported that NDMA, a probable human carcinogen (a substance that could cause cancer), was found in ranitidine (Zantac). If you were taking Zantac and were diagnosed with cancer, contact us today to see if you qualify to file a Zantac cancer lawsuit.
Belviq (lorcaserin) and Belviq XR - A recent safety clinical trial found that the weight loss pill Belviq has been associated with an increased risk of numerous types of cancer. We are currently considering cases where someone took Belviq and was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, colon cancer, or and lung cancer.
Beovu - If you were given a Beovu injection prior to June 2020 and were subsequently diagnosed with retinal inflammation (vasculitis), you may be entitled to compensation. According to a press release from Novartis, the FDA approved a label update for Beovu in June 2020 to include safety information about retinal vasculitis and retinal vascular occlusion.
Surgical Stapler - There have been tens of thousands of reports where a surgical stapler malfunctioned or failed and caused injury. If you had surgery and suffered a complication from a surgical stapler, like internal bleeding, organ damage, fistula (abnormal connection between organs and blood vessels) or a loved one died, you may be entitled to compensation.
Allergan Breast Implants - Studies have linked Allergan breast implants with a rare breast cancer called anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL), a rare form of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. If you had an Allergan breast implant and were diagnosed with ALCL, or if a loved one died from this rare cancer, you may be entitled to compensation.
How much is my case worth if I have a drug injury or medical device injury?
You may be entitled to a settlement or verdict if you were injured by a medical device or medicine. The amount you can get depends on many factors, including pain and suffering, medical expenses, permanency of your injury, among other factors. A drug injury lawyer at the Law Offices of Jason Turchin can speak with you to see what compensation you might qualify for.
