Defective Drug Lawyers in Southern Ohio

Your prescription and over-the-counter drugs are supposed to help you, not hurt you. But, just like other defective products like medical devices or home appliances, even drugs get sold that can hurt you. If you have been injured by your drugs, you can work with my office, The Law Firm of Richard M. Lewis, to make sure that the people who caused your injury are held responsible.

Actos Claim Attorney

Currently, a drug that has injured many people is the drug Actos. Prescribed for people who suffer from diabetes, it has been shown that Actos can also be the cause of bladder cancer. If you have bladder cancer and you have also taken Actos, there may be a connection.

When you contact me, I will talk with you about your medical history. I will ask about your smoking history and your history with Actos. With respect to all of this medical information, I will also be compiling a master list with you of every medical professional who has treated you for the medical issues bothering you. I will also have you authorize me to have access to your medical records themselves so I can review them for facts we can use in making your case to the court.

We are local attorneys familiar with the courts. Located in Jackson, we serve clients throughout Wellston, Gallipolis, Vinton, Athens, Portsmouth and beyond.

In It for the Long Haul

We all want legal conflicts to be resolved as quickly as possible. My office will work with you to help keep your head above water when things seem to be moving faster than you can manage. We will also support you during those times in defective drug cases where the court seems to be moving in slow motion. Usually, a defective drug case takes approximately a year to a year and a half to get to trial, and my firm is in it with you the entire way.
