Hensley Legal Group Is Here for Victims of Dangerous Drugs and Devices
Doctors prescribe drugs and medical devices to cure or help certain diseases and medical conditions. But sometimes, as the saying goes, “The cure is worse than the disease.” Sometimes, certain drugs and medical devices create tragic problems of their own.
Drug companies are responsible for manufacturing products that are safe. They have a legal obligation to warn the public of any harmful side effects. These warnings may appear on the label, or your doctor or pharmacist may warn you verbally.
When warnings are not provided, preventable illnesses can occur. In such cases, you may be able to hold the drug manufacturer, the pharmacist, or your doctor accountable.
If dangerous drugs or devices result in injury or illness, a personal injury attorney can help you seek legal recourse through a mass tort claim.
How a Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help with Your Mass Tort Claim
If you’ve suffered from a dangerous drug or device, you’re not alone. Drug companies and manufacturers typically create and sell products across the country. That means there are victims nationwide.
A mass tort maintains the individuality of each person’s claim. The claims are presented together so the legal system can proceed through thousands of claims against the same defendant at the same time, rather than taking decades (or centuries) to process each case one by one. In comparison, a class action lawsuit groups all of the claims together under one lawsuit. Everyone files for the same damages, and everyone receives the same compensation. The individuality of each claim is lost.
Mass torts make sense for personal injury claims because each person’s injury is different. For example, let’s say you fall victim to a dangerous drug. You suffer severe gastrointestinal problems and end up hospitalized due to dehydration. However, someone else who took the same drug ended up suffering internal bleeding. They had to undergo emergency surgery. Clearly, while you both deserve compensation for your injuries, your injuries are different in severity.
Class actions are useful when everyone suffered the same amount of damages. Mass torts, on the other hand, make sure you get the compensation you deserve for your specific case. A personal injury attorney can handle your individual mass tort claim.
