When someone suffers an injury or adverse health effects from a medication, they are often unsure of how to proceed. Can I hold someone responsible? What are my legal options?

Our Michigan dangerous drug lawsuit lawyers know you probably have many questions about prescription drug cases and whether or not you have a valid lawsuit against a pharmaceutical company or manufacturer. Cases of these nature can be complicated and confusing, so we understand that you may be looking to better understand your legal options before you proceed.

While medical professionals may recommend or endorse certain products at one point in time, our understanding of medicine and what is actually helpful changes. Even if something was safe for you to take a few months ago, it may have come under reconsideration after scientific studies called its safety into question.

There are even over-the-counter drugs or products that are now being examined, leaving users confused as to how they could proceed with seeking justice and compensation against the negligence of the manufacturer or pharmaceutical company. If you find yourself in this situation, you can benefit from reaching out to our team to discuss your options. However, we understand that you might have a lot of questions before you’re ready to start working on a claim—or even contact an attorney.
