How Can A Lawyer Help After a Drug Injury?

by Staff Blogger | January 2nd, 2018

Prescription medications are designed to help patients deal with symptoms, pain, and chronic conditions. But when those medicines lead to painful and even life-threatening drug injuries, patients and their families are often left feeling devastated and discouraged.

Prescription medications are powerful substances that can change lives for the better, but they also have the potential to cause serious complications and side effects. Unfortunately, some drugs are released to the market and given to patients even after studies link them to potentially fatal complications.

At Cofman Townsley, our St. Louis drug injury lawyers represent people like you who were hurt by medications that were supposed to make them feel better. When we take on new drug injury claims, we carefully complete the following steps:

  • Collect evidence that proves the drug could be dangerous – Many popular drugs, including antidepressants, diabetes drugs, and blood thinners are linked to serious conditions. Some have even been recalled, but they’re still prescribed to patients. That information can be used as evidence when building a claim.
  • Link the drug to your health problems – Many drug companies and their insurance providers are hesitant to accept or pay out drug injury claims. They may claim that health problems were pre-existing or were caused by other sources. We know how to collect and use medical records to prove that you were harmed by a dangerous drug.

Drug injury victims can and often do suffer side effects and complications that follow them for life, resulting in permanent pain and disability. It’s our goal to make sure they’re given a voice. Don’t wait to get the help you deserve. Call today for a free consultation.
