Unfortunately, some pharmaceutical companies sometimes fail to share information about the adverse effects of a drug and as a result, physicians and consumers are not aware of the potential reactions they may have to face. People are also sometimes harmed when their pharmacists fill their prescriptions improperly: either by dispensing incorrect dosages, or even worse, dispensing the wrong prescription entirely. Other times, patients are permanently injured or even killed by defective drugs or prescription errors. These cases fall within a type of law known as product liability. If you’re a victim of defective medication, please contact Erney Law in Columbus, Ohio to help fight you fight for the financial compensation you deserve.

How do I join a class action lawsuit for a defective medication in Columbus, Ohio?
Anyone that has ingested a defective drug and as a result were harmed, has the right to file a lawsuit against the medication manufacturer. Medication liability lawsuits are personal injury lawsuits that are often grouped together with other individuals who are in the same situation as you from taking the same medication. This is commonly referred to as “consolidation” or “mass tort”. It’s quite beneficial to the victim to join a class action lawsuit to get the attention of the pharmaceutical company quicker which will likely result in a much more expedient and substantial compensation.
These types of cases will have you already enrolled into the class action lawsuit. You will be mailed an “opt-out” to which you can submit to excuse yourself from taking part in the lawsuit.
