Fighting for Victims of Prescription Drug Recalls and Defects
When a doctor prescribes medication, we assume that it will either eliminate or alleviate our symptoms. We trust that the pharmacist will fill the prescription correctly, and that the manufacturer is telling the truth about its side effects. Unfortunately, errors are sometimes made and the prescription medication that is supposed to make us feel better actually makes us feel worse.
If you have experienced serious and life-threatening side effects as a result of a defective drug, prescription error or prescription drug recall, the Law Offices of Michael R. Bilbrey, P.C. can help. Contact our offices in Edwardsville, or Glen Carbon, Illinois, at 866-678-9673 to schedule a free initial consultation.
Identifying True Neglect
Some prescription drug injuries or side effects are the result of unknown allergies. These injuries are not considered doctor or pharmaceutical errors. True prescription drug defect cases arise when a physician, manufacturer or pharmacist knew or should have known about dangerous side effects, yet still prescribed or distributed the drug.
Prescription drug illnesses occur for a variety of reasons, including:
- Doctor misdiagnosed your symptoms
- Doctor failed to take and/or review your medical history
- Doctor prescribed too much medication for the illness
- Pharmacist filled the prescription incorrectly
- Pharmacist mislabeled the prescription
- Drug company falsely promoted a prescription drug
- Drug manufacturer failed to disclose the potential side effects or potential birth defects
- Prescription drug recalls
- Prescription Drug - Avandia
Our lawyers are able to handle all types of prescription drug cases. We work with medical professionals who help us determine whether negligent action resulted in the harmful side effects. We also thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your case in order to accurately identify the parties from whom we will seek full and fair compensation for your unnecessary suffering.
