Q Who or What Decides How Much My Dangerous Drug Case Is Worth?
Our office is often asked how much a case is worth during an initial consultation. It's nearly impossible to determine this without more information, but there are some important factors to consider:
First, you and your attorney must determine if you have a case. Were you using the drug as it was intended? Did you experience side effects that weren’t listed on the label as possible risks? Was the drug manufacturer aware of the defect? Did they fail to warn you or your physician? Have you suffered serious medical complications as a result of the dangerous drug?
All of these factors make for a strong dangerous drug case. Once that's established, the level of compensation is often based on several key questions:
- What's the extent of your injuries?
- Do you need surgery?
- Are you missing work as a result of your injury?
- Has the injury permanently affected your life?
- What treatment is required?
- How many doctor visits will you need to make until you've fully recovered?
And then there's the emotional toll the injury has taken, which is even harder to monetize.
With all these factors in play, it's hard to tell upfront how much a dangerous drug case may be worth. But whatever the details, if you've been injured by a dangerous drug, we can help you get the compensation you deserve.
