You were warned that your loved one might experience some side effects from the medication that she took to manage her medical condition. The doctor that you saw in Appleton went over the benefits and the risks with you before you returned to your home in Neenah, Oshkosh, or another part of Wisconsin.
But You Were Never Told This
You were never told that there was a risk of death associated with the medication. Your loved one did not know the symptoms to watch for and she did not account for the risk of death when she decided to take the medication.
You Can’t Change What Happened, But You Can Change the Future
We know that you would trade anything to go back and prevent your loved one’s death and we know that you understand that it is impossible to do so. However, it is still worth fighting to protect your future and the future of other patients with your loved one’s condition.
You can do this by contacting a lawyer to discuss your legal rights. You may be able to file a wrongful death claim if the drug maker or marketer was negligent in determining whether the drug was safe or in informing the public of the potential risks. A wrongful death lawsuit may allow you to recover for the financial harm that you’ve suffered and may encourage drug manufacturers and marketers to take greater care to prevent these kinds of deaths in the future.
