How Do I Prove a Manufacturing Defect on My Drug Claim?
More than 100,000 reports of suspected medication errors are sent to the U.S. Food and Drug Association (FDA) every year. These errors are defined in the FDA’s article from 2019 essentially as something that could have been prevented and ended up causing the patient harm, and one case that represents this definition involves Sanofi-Aventis and their breast cancer chemotherapy treatment, Taxotere.
Taxotere is a particular drug that is known to produce long-lasting side effects like chemotherapy tearing, and its makers, Sanofi-Aventis, chose not to inform their patients about it. As a result, the national Taxotere lawsuit lawyers of Hotze Runkle PLLC are fully committed to helping you challenge Sanofi-Aventis’ negligence in order to win your case so you can receive the financial relief you deserve.
You Need Proof to Support Your Claim
There are three fundamental aspects that come into play throughout the process of proving your Taxotere tearing claim. The key to strengthening your case falls within these categories:
- Proof of your injury
- Proof the drug is defective
- Proof that the defect caused your injury
It’s crucial for you to hold onto as much documentation as you can from the moment your symptoms start. If you have information about when you or your loved one had chemotherapy, especially including additional hospital or doctor visits, this will help to confirm when your injury began as well as how intense the symptoms were.
While it can be far more difficult to show how a drug is defective, taking note of the marketing and labeling of drugs they were prescribed can strengthen your case. If a drug was incorrectly labeled, swapped for a different medicine, or failed to address the full extent of its potential side effects, then you may have a case for it being defective.
Connecting the defectiveness of the drug with your injury can be as simple as completing a timeline. Being matched with an experienced attorney means that they can ask you the right questions and help you develop your testimony, which would ultimately make your case even stronger.
Luckily, that’s what the national Taxotere lawsuit lawyers at Hotze Runkle PLLC are trained and prepared to do. It is also worth noting that not every defective drug case is the same, so having someone on your team who can challenge drug manufacturers that have acted negligently to you while addressing your individual needs is exactly how you’ll earn the compensation you need to heal.
