DO I HAVE A CASE?

Each drug injury case is unique because each individual’s body reacts to medication differently. Drug manufacturers and healthcare professionals have a responsibility to be aware of the possible negative effects a prescription drug may have and to make that information known to you. Below are a few of the factors to consider when determining the maximum compensation you could receive for your Oklahoma City drug injury claim.

Common Types of Drug Injuries

In our experience handling drug injury claims, we have seen a variety of damages done to the well-being of our clients. Some of the most common injuries that we have helped our clients recover from are

  • chronic kidney disease,
  • birth defects,
  • multiple different forms of cancer, and
  • cardiac issues, such as heart failure and heart attacks.

Common Causes of Drug Injuries

  • Unknown side-effects
  • Side-effects that were known but hidden from the public
  • Errors made by the prescribing physician (e.g. dosing errors, unapproved uses, failure to inform patient of side-effects or instructions, prescribing medication to an at-risk individual)
  • Labeling or contamination issues at the manufacturing facility

Oklahoma Statute of Limitations

The state of Oklahoma has a two-year statute of limitations on most personal injury cases, including cases involving a drug injury. This means that an individual has two years from the date of injury to file a claim for compensation. For this reason, it is important to get help as soon as your drug injury is discovered. Submit your case to Colbert Cooper Hill now for a free review and find out what options are available to you.

INJURED BY A DRUG? WE’RE HERE TO HELP

If taking a prescription drug has negatively impacted your quality of life, The Wolf Pack™ has your back.

WHAT COMPENSATION IS AVAILABLE FOR DRUG INJURY CLAIMS?

Prescription drug injuries can have far-reaching effects on your personal life and finances. You have the right to seek compensation for any expenses you’ve incurred from taking the drug. There are three main categories of compensable expenses:

  • Medical Expenses
    ER visits, medications, surgeries, office visits with your doctor, and physical or talk therapy appointments are all examples of medical expenses for which you could receive reimbursement.
  • Lost Wages
    This includes both past and future wages lost due to the drug injury and your recovery.
  • Pain and Suffering
    The law in Oklahoma allows individuals to seek compensation for non-economic damages resulting from drug injuries as well. Mental illness, diminished quality of life and relationships, physical pain, and grief over permanent damages to your health can all be recovered in the form of financial compensation.

Because no situation is alike, it is impossible to say what the full value of your claim may be without reviewing your case. Let The Wolf Pack™ take over your claim today to get you every dollar you deserve.

DRUG INJURY CLAIMS WE HANDLE

The following drug injury claims are just a few of the common claims that Colbert Cooper Hill has the resources to handle:

Abilify® Compulsive Behavior Risk

Studies have shown a potential link between taking the antipsychotic drug Abilify and damaging pathological behaviors, including compulsive gambling and hypersexuality.

Antidepressant Birth Defects

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are commonly prescribed antidepressant medications that can cause severe birth defects in babies born to mothers who use the drugs while pregnant.

Blood Thinner Injuries

Patients taking newer blood thinner medications may face an increased risk of severe bleeding. Certain anticoagulant drugs, such as Eliquis®, contain no counteracting drugs to stop bleeding once it begins, which may lead to serious or fatal health complications.

Diabetes Drug Linked to Cancer

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued warnings linking the Type 2 diabetes drugs Byetta® and Januvia® to an increased risk of bladder cancer.

Heartburn Drugs Linked to Kidney Disease

Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), a class of prescription heartburn drugs, are used to reduce acid in a patient’s stomach. Many of the most popular PPIs have been linked to serious health risks, including chronic kidney disease.

Invokana® and Invokamet®

Patients taking the Type 2 diabetes drugs Invokana and Invokamet may face an increased risk of ketoacidosis—a condition where the body produces high levels of acid in the blood.

Low T Heart Attacks

AndroGel® and other treatments for low testosterone—or Low T—have been linked to an increased risk of heart attack and other severe cardiac health issues in some male patients.

Onglyza®

An FDA advisory committee concluded that taking the prescription Type 2 diabetes drug Onglyza® (saxagliptin) can increase the risk of heart failure—a fatal condition.

Risperdal®

The antipsychotic medication Risperdal® is used to treat a variety of mental health issues. But the drug can cause young male patients to grow abnormally large breasts that require surgery to remove.

Taxotere® Permanent Hair Loss

Taxotere®, an injectable concentrate used during chemotherapy treatment for cancer, has been linked to permanent hair loss in female breast cancer survivors.

Viagra® Melanoma Risk

Millions of men use Viagra to treat erectile dysfunction. However, data shows trying Viagra even once may increase the risk of melanoma, an aggressive form of skin cancer.

Zofran®

Zofran is sometimes prescribed to treat severe morning sickness in pregnant women—an off-label, or unapproved, use. However, data indicates that the drug may lead to birth defects in children.

HOW CAN A LAWYER HELP MY CASE?

Drug companies are, first and foremost, businesses looking to make money. They will often do everything in their power to keep you from receiving fair compensation for your injuries, and it is likely they will try to deny or cover up any fault in the matter. You shouldn’t have to stand up against these companies alone, especially when you are still recovering from the hardships they’ve put you through.

When you have the drug injury attorneys at Colbert Cooper Hill in your corner, you can be sure that you’ll have a fair fight against those responsible for your pain. We don’t stop until justice is served. By maximizing your compensation, handling the confusing legal processes, keeping you updated on any action you need to take, and negotiating your settlement on your behalf, we hope to take the extra weight off your shoulders. You focus on healing while The Wolf Pack™ leads the attack

DRUG INJURY FAQS

What Should I Do After Being Injured by a Drug?

Once you realize that you are the victim of a drug injury, it is important to seek medical attention. You may be understandably wary of dealing with more doctors, but it is necessary that you get treatment for your condition. You should also be sure to document as much as you can about the experience—take note of when you began the medication, compile a list of your symptoms, and keep a record of when the symptoms began. Finally, contact The Wolf Pack™ so that we can get started building your case.

How Long Do I Have to File a Lawsuit?

In Oklahoma, the statute of limitations on most drug injury cases is two years. If you wait longer than two years from the date of injury to get help, you may miss out on the opportunity to seek compensation. Don’t wait, call Colbert Cooper Hill today!

Can I Press Criminal Charges Against Those At Fault?

You will not be able to press criminal charges in an Oklahoma City drug injury claim. These are civil cases, meaning you will be awarded damages paid by the responsible party. Not only does this help you get your life back on track, it punishes the drug manufacturers and healthcare workers involved.

How Do Drug Injuries Happen?

There are a variety of ways in which greed and irresponsibility can lead to you being harmed by a drug. Whether the fault lies with the pharmaceutical industry or the healthcare system, The Wolf Pack™ is by your side.

How Much Will I Have to Pay a Drug Injury Lawyer?

Our team of compassionate attorneys believes that everyone has the right to strong legal representation. Your well-being is our top priority, and you should never feel like finances are holding you back from seeking justice. The lawyers at Colbert Cooper Hill work on a contingency-fee-basis, never charging a single fee unless we win your case. See what we can do for you with a no-cost case consultation.

Do I Have to Hire a Lawyer?

Anyone is legally allowed to represent themselves in a drug injury case. However, you will be at an extreme disadvantage if you choose to go at it alone. Healthcare facilities and drug manufacturing companies are backed by legal teams with their best interests in mind, not yours. The Wolf Pack™ has the resources to stand up for you, getting you compensation you may not have realized you were owed.
