Drugs and medicines go through very rigorous testing regimes before they even reach a human test subject – let alone being given as prescriptions or made available for sale over the counter. But even with such strict standards, there are cases where drugs don’t work the way they’re supposed to.
If you’ve been injured, become ill, or had a condition get worse, because a drug has had serious unexpected side effects or has failed to work because of a manufacturing defect, then our solicitors may be able to help you claim compensation.
We may also be able to help you if you’ve become ill or suffered injuries while participating in a clinical trial. There are specific guidelines around whether or not you can claim, and our experienced defective drug lawyers have helped many clients get the compensation they deserve for this in the past.
In the past we have supported clients through claims involving a number of different types of drug, including:
- Human growth hormone
- Lariam (Mefloquine)
- Dietary supplements
- Contaminated blood products
