During decades of practice in Midland-Odessa, Braker White has represented clients injured by prescription drugs as a successful Odessa pharmaceutical drug injury lawyer. The medical industry is complicated and the laws of product liability and medical malpractice get more complex as industries continue to develop. Even when it’s a multimillion-dollar drug lawsuit, it all comes down to the burden of proof — we have to find out who was at fault.

Many people can be blamed when something goes wrong because of a medication, and it takes an experienced Texas drug injury lawyer to get to the bottom of the mistake.

It’s important to know the right questions to ask and who should be answering them: Did the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) miss something during the drug’s approval process? Was a mistake made by the pharmaceutical manufacturer? Was your prescription made after a drug recall? Were you warned of all potential side effects by your doctor? Were there sufficient side effects warnings on the package? Did your doctor take into consideration your complete health history before giving you the drug?

When you need honest answers and knowledgeable representation, get Braker White on your side.

Do You Have a Case?

If you are wondering if your situation is a valid case, then consider the following:

  • Did you experience harm from a prescription that was not expected and was quite severe?
  • Did you contact your doctor about your worries and concerns over complications with your medicine but they did not respond to you promptly or at all? 
  • Has your condition or injury not improved or gotten worse after taking your prescribed medication?
  • Are you suffering from symptoms that you were not informed could happen?

Any of these scenarios and more could mean that you were injured by a drug, whether it was defective or incorrectly administered. If something is amiss in your treatment, negligence or mistakes may have transpired. The Texas defective drug injury attorneys at Braker White can help you.

According to the Food & Drug Administration (FDA), adverse events can result when taking a medication. The following are the most common injuries that a person suffering from a drug injury can experience:

  • Death
  • Suffering a life-threatening condition
  • Having to be hospitalized or staying in the hospital’s care for a prolonged period of time
  • Temporary or permanent disability
  • Harm to an unborn child or issues with fertility

Not every side effect suffered from a drug injury means that there was negligence. Although, when it can be determined that adverse effects of drugs came about because the drug was either misprescribed or defective, several parties could be blamed. A victim’s specific circumstances will be used to determine who is responsible for paying for their damages.

Liable parties for drug injuries can include:

  • Drug manufacturers who make mistakes during the manufacturing of the drug, do not indicate warnings for specific side effects, or market drugs in a way that makes them available for conditions where they are harmful
  • Laboratories testing drugs
  • Distributors mishandling drugs
  • Sales representatives
  • Hospitals and medical clinics
  • Doctors
  • Pharmacies and pharmacists

Prescription Drugs Should Keep You Safe, Not Cause Injuries of Their Own

If a pharmaceutical has harmed you or led to ongoing illnesses, you deserve repayment for the suffering and financial loss it has caused. Braker White will be by your side to help you recover what you need and secure compensation for costs you’re expected to pay in the future.

Damages That Can Be Recovered With a Pharmaceutical Injury Claim

You can file a claim if you are injured by a defective drug in Texas. In your claim, you can account for all of the losses or damages you suffered. Some of these may include the following:

  • Medical expenses, both current and future
  • Loss of earning capacity due to injuries
  • Pain and suffering

It is important to note and understand that there are caps on what a victim can recover in Texas for non-economic damages like pain and suffering. An attorney at Braker White will be able to advise victims of these limitations in compensation.

How Can a Drug Injury Attorney Help Me?

Although not necessarily required, having an experienced attorney can be a significant benefit to drug injury victims. These claims are notoriously complex, and the bar for proving medical negligence is relatively high when one is harmed by a defective drug or one that a medical professional did not correctly prescribe. 

Additionally, when you suffer injuries, you will not feel your best. You must focus on your health and well-being. Having to also take on a legal battle can inhibit your ability to recover. Working with an attorney gives you the peace of mind that your claim is being taken care of so you can make getting better your primary focus.

What Are the Next Steps?

To learn more about your legal options, to find out the true value of your claim, and to get to know our legal team, schedule your free case review over the phone, online, or in person. We are available 24/7 to begin the process, and there is no obligation necessary for this case review. It is cost-free information and advice from your local Odessa pharmaceutical injury experts.

We know exactly what is needed to successfully support your claim, and we will work with you to collect the necessary documents. These may include medical records or bills, police reports, and expert testimony, among other pieces of evidence.

The next step involves dealing directly with the insurance company which will likely be doing their best to deny or underpay your claim if they’re given any small chance. This is where we come in. 

Braker White has experience with different insurance companies and their tricks and will handle the negotiation process for you. They know the tactics they use, and they will work to secure you the highest possible settlement. You don’t have to argue or agree with anything the insurance adjuster tells you — just send them to your lawyer!

If the negotiation process ends successfully and we are able to recover an appropriate settlement for your claim, you will have the option to accept this final settlement. Braker White will always be on your side, advising you of all options and helping you make the best choice for you.

Our office will continue working on your case to be sure the money is in your hands promptly. If there are any unreasonable, unlawful delays in getting your money, we can take action on your behalf.
