Case Evaluations

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.

Why should I file a claim?

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.

Do I have to use your recommended firm?

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.

Step 4

We connect you directly to the law firm you’ve selected

When you call, Patient Advocates ask questions about the drug or device that caused the injury and your medical history. Based on your responses, they will likely ask additional questions based on the criteria of the firms we recommend. We use that information to potentially identify a law firm that has experience handling cases like yours.

What to expect from the law firm

When you are contacted by the law firm, you should discuss your reasons for wanting to file a lawsuit. You should also ask any questions you have about the legal process and your potential for filing a case. The attorneys we match you with are well-qualified to complete your case evaluation and inform you about your claim’s potential.

If we can’t find a firm for you

In some circumstances, Patient Advocates may not be able to offer a recommendation. If the criteria we apply suggest that you have a specific risk factor that is not a good match with the attorneys we’ve vetted or that you may not be eligible to file a legal claim, Patient Advocates will not be able to offer you a recommendation. In those cases, we are upfront with you about our findings so that you can look for another resource, if you desire.
