Georgia Drug Injury Attorneys

More than half of Americans rely on prescription drugs to treat conditions and illnesses that plague their daily lives. Some medications are designed to treat medical ailments, while others are strictly preventative. As Georgia consumers, we depend upon the expertise and ability of the drug manufacturing companies to design an effective drug, and sufficiently test it so that the medication does not result in a dangerous complication. However, this does not always happen and each day, consumers are injured by dangerous pharmaceuticals and defective medical devices.

If you or a loved one suffered an injury or adverse reaction from defective drug, speak to a Georgia drug recall attorney as soon as possible to discuss your options.

In a wrongful death case, the injury must have been discovered within a year from the date of death.

Who is at Fault?

When a prescription drug injures a consumer, there are several different parties that may be at fault. Oftentimes, the manufacturer of a defective drug is responsible if it failed to perform the appropriate research or testing before introducing a medication into the marketplace. This would be a case of product liability. However, if a Georgia doctor prescribes the wrong drug for a particular condition, you may be able to recover compensation on a medical malpractice claim.
