Let’s simplify the journey through medication lawsuits, empowering you to seek the justice you deserve.

Join us on a collective journey from initial eligibility verification to the empowering moment of receiving compensation.

Understanding Your Concerns

It’s perfectly normal to feel uncertain and anxious when facing the prospect of a medication lawsuit. You may have questions swirling in your mind, such as: What are my legal rights? How do I go about seeking justice? What steps should I take next? Rest assured, we’re here to address your concerns and provide you with the clarity and direction you need.

Know Your Rights

The first step in navigating a medication lawsuit is understanding your rights as a consumer. As a consumer, you have the right to expect that the medications prescribed to you are safe and effective. You also have the right to access information about potential risks associated with these medications and to be treated fairly and respectfully by healthcare providers and pharmaceutical companies.

Fortunately, there are laws in place to protect individuals who have been harmed by defective or dangerous medications. These laws, known as product liability laws, hold pharmaceutical companies accountable for the products they manufacture and distribute. They also provide avenues for individuals to seek compensation for damages caused by these products.

Identifying Grounds for a Lawsuit

Recognizing Adverse Effects

It’s essential to pay attention to any adverse effects you may experience after taking a medication. These effects could range from mild discomfort to severe illness or injury. If you believe that your symptoms are related to a medication you’ve been prescribed, it’s crucial to document them and seek medical attention promptly.

Misrepresentation and Failure to Warn

Pharmaceutical companies must provide accurate information about the risks associated with their medications. If a company fails to disclose these risks or misrepresents the safety of its products, it may be held liable for any harm caused to consumers.

Class action and mass tort lawsuits

In some cases, certain medications may be investigated and litigated through a class action or mass tort lawsuit, where a group of people has been harmed by the same product. These cases are consolidated into one large case to streamline the litigation process and often result in substantial settlements or verdicts distributed among plaintiffs based on their damages, ensuring you receive fair compensation for your injuries. If you have been harmed by a medication, you may be eligible for compensation through a class action or mass tort lawsuit.

Joining a medication lawsuit with Justpoint

Here’s how we navigate medication lawsuits together:

Free consultation

In your free consultation, a member of our team will listen carefully to your story, answer any questions you have, and will verify that you qualify for a case we are investigating. You’ll have the opportunity to discuss the details of your case and learn more about your legal options. Your story becomes a crucial part of our collective effort to unveil the truth and protect your health.

Case review & investigation

If qualified, you join our class action or mass tort investigation. Our dedicated legal and medical team reviews your case details and medical records to understand the cause of your condition.

You’ll gain access to a wealth of resources dedicated to supporting your case, from our network of medical experts and legal team to technology. These resources are instrumental in building a strong case and presenting compelling supportive evidence.

We retrieve and analyze your medical records and provide copies to you for free.

Championing your case

If we see a link between the medication you took and the illness you suffered from, your attorney will file your claim on your behalf and begin litigation against the medication’s manufacturer. Your attorney will handle the court process on your behalf, making sure you are guided toward the justice and compensation that you rightfully deserve.

While investigating the suspected illness causes, we begin conducting pharmacology and toxicology research and work with our partner law firms to file suit against the parties responsible.

Case resolution

The process ends when the cases are either settled or a judgment is made after a trial. If the case settles or we get a positive judgment, compensation is provided by the defendant to address the harm they caused.

Negotiation, Mediation, and Trial

Negotiation and Settlement

In many cases, medication lawsuits are resolved through negotiation and settlement outside of court. Your attorney will work on your behalf to negotiate a fair settlement that compensates you for your damages without the need for a trial.

Mediation and Alternative Dispute Resolution

If negotiations fail to produce a settlement, you may have the option to participate in mediation or another form of alternative dispute resolution. These methods can help you reach a resolution more quickly and cost-effectively than going to trial.

Preparing for Trial

If your case proceeds to trial, your attorney will prepare you for what to expect in the courtroom. This may include preparing witness testimony, presenting evidence, and making arguments before a judge and jury.

Pursuing Compensation and Remedies

Types of Compensation

If you’re successful in your medication lawsuit, you may be entitled to various forms of compensation, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and punitive damages. Your attorney will help you determine the appropriate types of compensation to pursue based on the specifics of your case.

Advocating for Remedial Action

In addition to seeking compensation for your damages, your attorney will advocate for remedial action to prevent similar harm from occurring to others. This includes stopping the defendant from producing or releasing the drug, to pushing for changes on medication labeling or advocating for stricter regulations and safety measures from pharmaceutical companies, benefiting society at large. It’s about creating a safer and healthier future for all.

Your path to a healthier future

Navigating a medication lawsuit can be complex and overwhelming, but you don’t have to do it alone. At Justpoint, we’re here to guide you every step of the way.
