Both prescription and over-the-counter medications are designed and released to the market after billions of dollars are spent in research and development, and in most cases, they help people who are hurt or sick get better. But in some cases, oversights or negligence during the testing and clinical trial processes mean that dangerous drugs still get released for public consumption—and they may not be recalled for years, if at all. Suffering a bad reaction to a dangerous or defective medication can result in painful, disabling, and even life-threatening injuries or illnesses.

At Norris Injury Lawyers, our Alabama drug injury attorneys help victims of drug injuries in two important ways:

  • We can help prove that the drug caused your illness or injury. Pharmaceutical companies and their insurance providers are reluctant to pay settlements to people who were hurt by their drugs. We’ll collect, analyze, and present evidence that proves you were injured by their medication.
  • We can negotiate to get you the compensation you deserve. Too often, drug companies and their insurers pay victims lowball settlements that aren’t enough to cover their medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. We’ll calculate how much you should be owed, and we’ll negotiate to maximize your compensation.

Going up against a big pharmaceutical company can be intimidating, but our legal team isn’t afraid to stand up for your rights. If you or a loved one suffered a drug injury, contact us today for a free consultation. We’re here to help.
