Macon Drug Injury Lawyers
Helping Georgia Hold the Pharmaceutical Industry Accountable
When you take a prescription or over-the-counter drug, you trust that it would will your health and well being rather than worsen it. We shouldn’t need to be responsible for determining whether a certain medicine is safe to consume; that is the job of medical practitioners and pharmacists. The stakes in this field are high—often a matter of life and death—but drug companies are still subject to everything from human error to gross negligence to purposeful misrepresentation.
If you suffered serious side effects or medical complications from an unsafe or recalled drug, our Macon-Bibb County attorneys at Cooper, Barton & Cooper are here to help you obtain compensation. We use calculated investigative strategies, assertive litigation techniques, and diligent dedication to your case to help you pursue your recovery and hold liable parties accountable. This crisis may have placed you under significant physical, emotional, and financial stress—we want to help unload that burden as much as possible.
Call our drug injury lawyers at (478) 202-7050 so we can send them a message together: We won’t stay for gross negligence from our healthcare providers.
We Go Up Against Medical Giants on Behalf of Our Clients
Medical professionals have a unique responsibility for the health of their patients. But, like many other fields, the pharmaceutical industry is highly competitive. In an effort to secure a patent and see a return on massive investments, drug companies sacrifice thorough testing to make a profit off millions of unbeknownst consumers. They may adorn bottles and packages with insufficient or even purposely misleading labels, causing at-risk consumers to purchase and use unsafe medications. Without extensive testing, companies may also be completely unaware of serious, long-term side effects.
Consequences of this reckless rate of testing, development, and production range from mild illness to death and everything in between, including:
- Increased blood pressure
- Organ damage
- Stroke or cardiac arrest
- Anxiety or depression
- Birth defects
With more than 30 years of experience in the courtroom, Cooper, Barton & Cooper is not afraid to take on Big Pharma. Our core values are excellence, integrity, honesty, and respect, and we hold everyone to those standards—whether we are training our own team or demonstrating a drug company’s liability in the courtroom.
The party we will hold accountable for your drug injury is usually one of three entities:
- Physicians: liable for prescribing a drug when they should have known (or their colleagues would have known) it would harm the patient
- Pharmacists: liable for providing the consumer with the wrong medication or dosage
- Drug manufacturers: liable for inadequate research/testing or for failing (purposefully or otherwise) to disclose the drug’s side effects
According to the CDC, more than 1 million emergency room visits are results of adverse drug events, and over a third of these patients are hospitalized for continued treatment. From pain reliever overdose to improper prescription of antibiotics, a substantial portion of injuries and fatalities due to medicine can be traced back to negligence from a doctor, pharmacist, or manufacturer.
