Dangerous Pharmaceutical Drugs

Dangerous Pharmaceutical Drugs

The government relies heavily on regulations to ensure prescription drugs are not dangerous or defective[1]. However, despite its best efforts, thousands of injuries, serious side effects, and deaths are reportedly linked to FDA-approved drugs every year. The injuries that stem from defective or dangerous drugs can cost victims an exorbitant amount of money to recover from and a lengthy case to prove causation, and drug lawsuit settlements can take a long time to come through.

The ubiquity of prescription drug use means there are many dangers you may encounter in your lifetime, including improperly labeled dosages, unlisted side effects, failure to warn about combining medications, and more.

We offer pre-settlement funding to help you get the money you need to cover your expenses while your dangerous drug case settles.

What is a Pharmaceutical Drug Lawsuit?

Pharmaceutical drug lawsuits occur when people experience injury as a result of defective drugs, poor drug labeling, or a failure to disclose potentially serious side effects. For example, thousands of people who experienced severe internal bleeding are looking for pre-settlement funding for Pradaxa lawsuits — these injury victims may have suffered lasting side-effects, lost earnings, or permanent disability as a result of their injuries.

What is pre-settlement funding for a pharmaceutical drug lawsuit?

A pre-settlement funding advance offers a way to access the money you expect to receive as a result of your lawsuit. For example, you can apply for Accutane lawsuit pre-settlement funding. When you do this, you’re essentially selling a portion of your future settlement to us in return for access to money today.

If your application is successful, you can use your drug or medical malpractice pre-settlement funding to cover medical bills, transportation costs, or general living experiences if you have experienced a loss of earnings. The monetary advance is there for you to use as you require.

How long does it take for you to get approved for pre-settlement funding for your pharmaceutical case?  

We try to consider claims as quickly as possible because we understand that the process can be stressful for many injury victims. You can help the process go smoothly by waiting until you have a lawyer to contact us and ensuring they agree you have a strong case and are willing to represent you on a contingency basis. Upon approval of the application and acceptance of the purchase agreement, we will process your settlement advance and you can expect to receive it within 24 hours.

What are the requirements for pre-settlement funding for your pharmaceutical drug lawsuit?

Before we will consider offering pre-settlement funding, you must have a lawyer who is willing to take on your case. You must also have a strong claim against the defendant. We expect you to have either started the claim or be in the process of doing so before we will consider your application.
