Can Drugwatch Provide Medical Advice?

Drugwatch does not employ doctors or licensed medical professionals, so it does not provide medical advice. Nothing presented on Drugwatch is a substitute for the advice of a doctor or other licensed health care provider.

How Does Drugwatch Connect People with Lawyers?

People who are interested in speaking with a lawyer about their injuries can fill out a free case review form on Drugwatch.com. Drugwatch sends the forms to its legal partners.

What Happens During and After a Free Case Review?

A representative from one of the law firms Drugwatch partners with will ask you questions about you or your loved one’s injuries and the drug or medical device in question. The representative will let you know whether the law firm is able to handle a case like yours.

The law firm may send you a retainer. This is a legal contract to represent a potential client. Until the contract is signed and returned, the firm cannot act on a client’s behalf.

At this point, the firm does not share any information with Drugwatch, and our staff has no access to information pertaining to a particular case. For status updates, always contact the law firm directly.
