Generally, if a dangerous drug or defective medical device causes your injuries, then you can recover compensation through a product liability lawsuit. However, after an accident, you may not know whether defects are to blame. However, as attorney Gene Riddle explains in this video, you can usually find information about the product in question online, especially if there is a recall or ongoing lawsuit concerning it. Additionally, our lawyers can give you the information you need and answer your questions on the phone or during a free consultation.

Our past experience in investigating and handling cases involving bad drugs and defective products, even though it’s extensive—as soon as the medical evidence supports injury from a bad drug or defective product, the public learns very quickly, these days, because of what’s put on the internet. And the news. I mean, today you can watch the news. And you can watch it on the internet. But the best way to find out is to give us a call. There does not have to be a recall in order to have a claim against the manufacturer of a bad drug or a bad medical device. However, there has to be scientific evidence. To prove that the drug was bad, there has to be studies. And when that happens, people will know about it. If there’s a recall, everybody will know about it. If there’s a recall, you may get a letter. You may get a phone call. You may get both. And attorneys will have that information on their website. All you have to do, google your drug, google your symptoms. If there’s a lawsuit, you’ll find it. In most cases where there’s a defective drug or a bad drug or defective medical device, if there’s an action, you’ll see it on our website. Or, we can certainly give you the name of an attorney who is handling that type of case or is reviewing that type of case. Please give us a call or send us an email. We’re here. We’re ready to help. Justice Counts.
