In this cynical age, it’s not unheard of for potential claimants to feel a certain amount of hesitation when making a personal injury claim for an accident or injury, which wasn’t their own fault. The media vilifies claimants as ‘immoral’, ‘money grabbing vultures’ when the truth of the matter is that it’s the wrong-doers we should really be casting the eye of blame against, no more so than when the blame falls at the feet of a medical professional.
We deserve the right to hold our doctors in contempt if they have diagnosed us with an illness we don’t have and ‘treated’ us with medications that result in serious injury. There are also medicines which might have been rushed out to the marketplace without thorough testing, and on such occasions it’s not the doctors themselves who are to blame but the pharmaceutical companies who supply them with their medicines. Injuries and even deaths caused by defective drugs are unfortunately common as pharmaceutical companies are as likely to work for profit as those working in any other sector. When those pound signs start flashing in front of their eyes, it’s not unthinkable that a drug could get passed before any potential side-effects or defects are rooted out and in these cases, if you’ve been affected, you could file a personal injury claim with us here at Accident Advice Helpline.
Potential injuries caused by defective drugs
Defective drugs have been known to lead to all manner of medical injuries including (but not limited to) heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, increased blood pressure and even clinical depression (which in itself can lead to potential suicide). If you have been given medication from your GP that you feel could have contributed to you or somebody you know suffering any of the above conditions, contact Accident Advice Helpline via our 24/7 hotline and we’ll put you on to one of our team of trained advisers. They will take you through every stage of the process, from the initial meeting to the eventual compensation. We operate on a 100% ‘no win, no fee*’ basis and specialise in medical negligence claims so know exactly what we’re talking about. Don’t believe us? Just ask our lead patron, TV personality and noted charity founder, Esther Rantzen who has personally endorsed our service.
Who’s to blame?
In the case of pharmaceutical injury compensation one of three people will generally be to blame. Either the drug manufacturer, the pharmacist or the physician. Whichever is to blame, we’ll do most of the leg work ourselves so you shouldn’t need to worry yourself with making any uncomfortable personal confrontations. We also strive to keep most of our cases out of the courts and 100% over the phone so don’t be shy, call today if you think you might have a case.
