We Take on the Parties That Were Responsible for Your Defective Drug Injury
The tiniest change in dosage or formulation can mean the difference in a drug saving your life or taking it. The medicine that can cure your illness can create new, worse problems if it is improperly compounded or mis-dosed. Doctors, pharmacists, and drug manufacturers have a serious duty to do everything possible to keep patients safe when taking prescription medications. They can be held financially liable when defective drugs harm patients.
If you were hurt by a defective drug and would like legal assistance, the Parrish Law Firm, PLLC, can investigate your situation and identify the responsible parties. A Fairfax defective drug lawyer will gather evidence that proves the liability of any at-fault party so that we can build an aggressive case against them for compensation.
The parties that might be liable for your defective drug injury may include:
The Drug Company
Drug manufacturers can face major liability if they put a defective drug on the market and that drug injures patients who take it by prescription. Federal laws require strict testing measures and quality control standards before drugs get dispensed to patients. We will investigate to determine if the drug manufacturer took any shortcuts or failed to meet these requirements in any way. If so, we will fight to hold them liable for compensation.
The Pharmacist or Pharmacy
The job of a pharmacist is not simply to dispense medication in the quantities directed by a patient’s doctor but to confirm that the drug will be safe and effective given the patient’s condition and medical history. Pharmacists must also be able to vouch for the safety and efficacy of the drug itself. If the pharmacist or any of their staff fail in these duties, we can hold them accountable.
The Doctor, Hospital, or Medical Facility
If the drug you took was not appropriate given your condition or medical history, we can take action against the doctor and the clinic or facility where they practice. We may also be able to file for compensation if a drug was prescribed at an improper or excessive dose that injured you.

We Help You Recover Compensation for Your Economic and Noneconomic Losses
A defective drug can throw your life into turmoil, which can cause you to incur medical bills, force you to miss work, and leave you in pain. You are entitled to compensation for these losses, regardless of whether they can be quantified in dollar terms.
A Fairfax defective drug lawyer from the Parrish Law Firm, PLLC, can help you fight for a settlement or award that includes compensation for:
Ongoing Medical Bills
If you ingested a defective drug and got sick, you may have been required to receive medical treatment to get better. Any amount of medical care can cause you to run up an expensive tab quickly. We fight hard to make sure the responsible parties and, if applicable, their insurers are the ones who foot the bill for your ongoing medical costs.
Treating an injury or illness caused by a defective drug often requires another prescription medication, which may be expensive. Depending on the nature of your condition and its severity, you may have to take medicine for a long time or for the rest of your life. Our goal is to have the parties responsible for your defective drug injury pay the costs of your future medications to treat the problem.
Lost Wages and Reduced Earning Capacity
A defective drug injury can force you to miss work, or it can reduce your working capacity. Either way, your paycheck may take a hit or disappear entirely as a result. The parties who caused your injury should be the ones to make up the cost of your lost wages or reduced earning capacity. We pursue them so that you are not the one who suffers from this inability to provide for yourself.
“Pain and Suffering” and Inconvenience
Physical and emotional suffering, in many cases, cannot always be quantified in dollar terms, nor can many other inconveniences caused by a severe illness or injury. However, this does not mean the other party should not compensate you for these damages. We help you recover money for your pain and suffering as well as any other inconveniences you experienced as a result of a defective drug injury.
Did your loved one lose their life after taking a defective or erroneously prescribed drug? You may be eligible to pursue a wrongful death claim on their behalf. A wrongful death settlement often includes compensation for items such as funeral expenses, burial costs, loss of the decedent’s future income, and loss of love and companionship. We will evaluate your case and let you know if you have grounds for a wrongful death claim.
