Filing a Lawsuit After an Adverse Drug Event

If you have experienced an injury due to a preventable adverse drug event, you may be eligible for financial compensation through a medical malpractice lawsuit. Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional fails to uphold the medical standard of care, causing harm to a patient. Because preventable events often occur due to the negligence of a medical professional, injured patients often qualify for litigation against the at-fault provider.

Through a medical malpractice lawsuit, you can recover compensation for the economic and non-economic damages you sustained due to the error. Common types of damages available in these claims include the following.

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation and physical therapy
  • Lost wages and loss of future earnings
  • Disability accommodations
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Permanent disability
  • Chronic pain
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of quality of life
