There are things you should not do after a medication or medical device injury

What you do now matters. The actions you take, or don’t take, can help or hurt your future. There are a lot of things to think about when all you want to do is to recover from the injury caused by a pharmaceutical company’s defective drug or medical device.

Avoid These Mistakes to Protect Your Recovery

As you manage your pain and begin healing from the injury that you suffered, it is important…

  • Not to ignore your physical symptoms or pain. You need to get prompt medical treatment for all of your symptoms for a variety of reasons. First, and most importantly, a doctor can diagnose and treat your condition so that it doesn’t get worse and so that your pain can be managed. Second, a doctor can help establish a connection between the drug or medical device and your injury. Third, your medical records may be important evidence in a potential lawsuit against the pharmaceutical company.
  • Not to delay legal action. The faster you contact a lawyer, the sooner you can get advice that can help prevent you from making mistakes and the sooner you can get started on your legal recovery. You have a limited amount of time to take action. If you fail to file a case before the statute of limitation expires, then you may be unable to make any kind of legal or financial recovery.
  • Not to try to negotiate directly with the pharmaceutical company. Anything that you say to the pharmaceutical company can be used against you. The pharmaceutical company has professionals working to protect its interests, and you deserve the same benefit of working with counsel.

Any one of these mistakes could interfere with your ability to recover the damages that you deserve in a pharmaceutical class action lawsuit.
