Many people suffer severe, sometimes permanent or life-threatening injuries because a drug or device maker misrepresented a product’s benefits and risks. Such a serious betrayal of trust can leave you with many unanswered questions. An experienced drug and device attorney can provide answers and potentially help you obtain compensation – but how can you tell if an attorney’s experience is relevant to your situation? Drugwatch’s Patient Advocates are here to help.
Taking on a large pharmaceutical company or medical device maker is not an easy task and is best handled by an experienced legal team.

People often look to the legal system for justice and financial compensation to alleviate some of the burden and help pay for medical treatment. Some people also file lawsuits in hopes of pressuring drug or device makers to take products off the market or of at least raising awareness about the health risks that manufacturers aren’t so eager to advertise.
Although we help make the process of choosing an attorney more efficient, the decision whether to file a lawsuit and hire a specific firm is entirely up to you. If Patient Advocates are able to provide a recommendation, we will contact the firm for you for free. The firm will then contact you about your case.
