Why Do You Need a Lawyer After a Drug Injury?

by Staff Blogger | February 26th, 2018

Prescription and over-the-counter medications are supposed to make us feel better, but oversights during the research and development phases can lead to potentially harmful drugs being released to the market. A wide range of commonly-prescribed medications are linked to serious health conditions, including Type 2 diabetes drugs, heartburn drugs, and blood thinner drugs. At Berg Injury Lawyers, we know that adverse effects from those medications are more common than many patients realize, but their doctors may not always be aware of the risks that certain medications pose. If you or someone you love were hurt by a prescription medication, a California drug injury lawyer wants to help you get the compensation you deserve. When you let us handle your drug injury claim, you can count on us to:
  • Gather evidence that proves the drug caused your illness your injury – The first step in a drug injury claim is proving the drug caused adverse health effects, and we know how to gather evidence that leaves no doubt about the origin of your illness or injury.

  • Negotiate to get you maximum compensation – Getting a settlement isn’t always enough, as insurance companies frequently “lowball” victims. It’s our goal to fight on your behalf until you’re offered the amount you deserve.
