Did you know that Drug Deaths Now Exceed Traffic Deaths?

According to a 2011 report from ABC News, drugs now kill more people than motor vehicle accidents in the U.S. The report goes on to say that drug overdoses and brain damage linked to long term drug abuse killed an estimated 37,485 people in 2009 in the U.S. Also, according to Dr. Paulozzi at U.S. Centers for Disease Control, (CDC), there has been a dramatic increase in the use of prescription drugs as physicians have become more liberal in prescribing them.

Questions & Answers

Q: If I am calling you about a Prescriptions / OTC / Drug Accident Case in Nashville, after learning more about my case, how would you explain the next step of the process, and what would be your general description of the typical process? (Don’t worry about rehashing some of the same info, as above but dive in a little deeper about the difference with this specific incident vs. general personal injury above.)

A: An initial interview with the potential client would be made by the attorney to obtain relevant information. An initial determination must be made as to the level of injury done by the negligence and continuing, ongoing reassessment of the harm must be continued once treatment for the injury has been undertaken. Records and documents, such as copies of the prescription form, physician records and treatment records pertaining to medical treatment of the injury are vital to determining the liability and damages. Experts witnesses must also be obtained in order to establish a prima facia case of negligence against the pharmacy and/or the medical provider.
