Damages We Pursue in Dangerous or Defective Drug Cases
Recovering from injuries after consuming a dangerous or defective drug could take years. The drug might affect your physical and psychiatric health. In some cases, defective drugs lead to illnesses beyond the conditions our clients were trying to address.
When our team seeks financial recovery for you, we carefully assess the drug’s damages and request the following types of recoverable damages:
- Medical bills now and in the future
- Loss of income now and in the future
- Loss of future earnings
- Physical disability or disfigurement
- Physical and emotional pain and suffering
Our team takes the physical and mental toll of defective drug injuries into account when assessing the value of pain and suffering.

Identifying the At-Fault Party in Your Case
While you cope with a defective drug’s effects on your health, we focus on building a compelling compensation case. Based on the evidence we collect, fault and liability in your case could belong to:
- Your physician if your injuries occurred because they prescribed the wrong medication or medication dose to you
- The pharmacists who filled your prescription if your injuries occurred because of a dosage error or mislabeled medication
- The drug’s manufacturer if the drug that caused your injuries is being recalled or is found to have dangerous side effects
You do not have to identify the at-fault party on your own. Doing so could be complicated, requiring extensive research and consultations with health care and medication experts. Our team will handle this process for you and hold the at-fault party financially responsible for your current condition.
Why You Should Pursue the At-Fault Party Right Away
- Like all civil cases in the United States, your dangerous drug case has a statutory filing deadline that you must comply with. When you decide to seek compensation, the at-fault party’s identity and the nature and extent of harm suffered will play roles in the determination of the applicable statute of limitations: For example:The personal injury statute of limitations will apply if you or someone you love was harmed, per New York Civil Practice Laws & Rules § 214.
- The wrongful death statute of limitations will apply if a loved one was fatally injured, per Estates, Powers & Trusts § 5-4.1.
- The medical malpractice statute of limitations will apply if a medical or prescription error caused your injuries. The medical malpractice statute of limitations is defined under New York Civil Practice Laws & Rules § 214-A.
Investigating medication-based personal injury cases is complex and may take time. When you contact our team sooner rather than later, we have time to conduct a comprehensive investigation, gathering and analyzing all relevant evidence and ensure the statutory filing deadline is met.
Because determining the exact date of your injury is complex, we consult experts with the ability to determine the date of injury.
