Defective Drug Attorney in Houston
Dangerous drug and medical device lawsuits are extremely difficult to file, as pharmaceutical companies hold so much power and financial resources. As a result, many patients deal with adverse side effects that damage their overall quality of life – or the quality of life for their children suffering from the resulting birth defects – and are not able to recover the finances necessary to take care of lost wages, medical bills, emotional damages, and more.
In the event a case is brought up against a drug manufacturer, they will investigate the law firm filing the suit to see whether or not they possess the money needed to fight. Without sufficient backing, the odds are stacked against the plaintiff and his or her legal representation, as they will likely be overwhelmed by the corporation's resources at some point and the case will go nowhere. The best-case scenario in these situations is usually a settlement far too low to do any real good.
But if they discover that the plaintiff's firm does have the financial wherewithal and, more importantly, has already proven their ability to take a drug lawsuit to trial and win – that can be a major game-changer for the pharmaceutical companies. If enough people have been injured or made ill as a result of their negligence somewhere in the research, development, testing, or release process, then they may have to go so far as to heavily regulate or outright yank the offending medication. Some high-profile victories against SSRIs and other drugs have sent a clear message to drug manufacturers that rushing to the market can come with grave consequences.
