It's important to seek legal advice if you've been injured as a result of taking a prescription or over-the-counter drug. A drug injury lawyer can provide you with the legal guidance and representation you need to pursue a claim. Below are some signs you need to hire a drug injury lawyer and seek legal advice.

If You’re Injured Due to a Medication Error

According to U.S. Pharmacist, more than 200,000 medication errors are reported to poison-control centers every year.

A lawyer can investigate your case and advise you on the best course of action.

If You’ve Developed Medical Complications or Side Effects Due to Taking a Drug

In some cases, prescription and over-the-counter drugs can cause serious medical complications such as heart attacks, stroke, and even death. If you've developed medical complications or side effects due to taking a drug, you should consult with a drug injury attorney who can review your case and determine if negligence played a role in any injuries sustained.

They can also advise you on how to move forward with a claim.
