Spokane Defective Drug Lawyer
When taking a medication prescribed by your doctor—or even an over-the-counter drug recommended by your pharmacist—it is completely reasonable to expect to see improvements in your health. Sadly, defective drugs sometimes reach the market and cause serious injury and harm to consumers.
If this is your situation, it is your right to file a personal injury lawsuit, and a Spokane defective drug lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates can help you do so.
Washington State Statute of Limitations
Once you know that a defective drug was to blame for your injuries, you will want to begin working with a Spokane defective drug lawyer immediately. Once the statute of limitations has been exceeded—three years in Washington—your case can be thrown out of court regardless of how valid it is.
Filing immediately does not prevent you from seeking compensation for future medical bills, either. It only means that your opportunity to sue is preserved, so act as soon as possible.
Compensation for Your Injuries
Your Spokane defective drug lawyer will help you recover financial compensation for all of the ways taking a bad drug has impacted your health and lifestyle. These may include any of the following items:
- Funds to hire a caregiver
- Having your medical expenses covered
- Transportation expenses
- Lost wages due to being unable to work
- And more
