What is pharmaceutical malpractice or pharmaceutical negligence?

Although the legal definition may vary slightly from state to state, as a general rule pharmaceutical malpractice (also known as pharmaceutical negligence) means that a drug company caused injury or death to a consumer by failing to act within the applicable standard of care.

In other words, a drug company commits malpractice and is negligent when it fails to act reasonably under the circumstances and the unreasonable conduct causes harm. This could be because the drug was not designed or tested properly. It could also be because the company did not provide effective and appropriate warnings to the doctors who prescribed the drug, and to the consumers who took them.

When should I suspect that my injuries were caused by hormone replacement therapy drugs?

Not all people who are injured from a hormone therapy drug may have a claim, but if you or a loved one has suffered serious injury or death, you should question whether the drug company acted responsibly. You owe it to yourself and your family to know the truth and to hold the drug company responsible for the harm it caused caused. Millions of dollars may be at stake.

If you suspect drug company wrongdoing,
contact us now - toll free and with no obligation. Our staff, including physician attorneys and nurse attorneys, are here to help.

How can I find out if I have a case?

The best way to tell if you have a case is to hire an experienced medical malpractice and pharmaceutical liability law firm to examine the medical care you received. (Click here to read about some of our verdicts and settlements.) At the Medlaw Legal Team of Janet, Jenner & Suggs, LLC that analysis begins with a simple telephone interview with one of our experienced malpractice attorneys. (Click here to read how you can benefit from having M.D./J.D.’s working for you.) With this call we want to learn what you already know about your medical care and injuries.

Unless one of our physician/attorneys (“M.D./J.D.’s”) determines from this initial interview that we are unable to assist you, the next step is for you (or the injured person) to hire our firm on a no risk/contingency fee basis. This means that if we do not win money for you, you owe us nothing-- no fees, no expenses.

After you have hired the Medlaw Legal Team, our medical records department (which includes a registered nurse paralegal) will immediately go to work for you obtaining the relevant medical records for examination and evaluation by our physician/attorneys. Then, if our M.D./J.D.’s conclude you have a viable medical negligence claim, we locate experienced and well credentialed medical experts in the appropriate fields of medicine to review the medical records, with the assistance and guidance of our M.D./J.D’s and/or our registered nurse/attorney. Once these experts complete their analysis and report whether they hold the opinion that the health care providers breached the applicable standard of care (meaning they were negligent) and caused your injuries, we confer with you, the client, with a recommendation on how next to proceed.

Put the Medlaw Legal Team of Janet, Jenner & Suggs, LLC to work for you.

How would it benefit me to hire attorneys who are also doctors or nurses?

What will it cost me to hire a lawyer?

NOTHING. The Medlaw Legal Team of Janet, Jenner & Suggs, LLC operates on a contingency fee basis. This means that our fee is based on a percentage of the recovery we win for you. Moreover, representation of clients outside of Maryland, the District of Columbia and Pennsylvania is undertaken in association with local counsel (and if suit is filed, with permission of the applicable court) at no additional legal fees to the client. Therefore, unless we are successful for you, you owe us nothing.

Moreover, we have such confidence in our team of experienced malpractice attorneys and “M.D/J.D’s” that we advance the expenses necessary to pursue a medical negligence case at no risk to you. This is very important for most of our clients.

For example, to assemble and pursue a strong birth injury case for you, with nationally renowned experts in the fields of obstetrics, neonatology, pediatric neurology, pediatric neuroradiology, pediatrics, placental pathology, obstetrical nursing, vocational rehabilitation, life care planning, and economics, can cost in excess of $100,000. We know that the parents of a brain damaged child cannot afford to finance such litigation. Therefore, we advance the costs and you are not responsible for reimbursing us unless we win for you.

What factors are important in choosing a lawyer?

Five factors are of prime importance in selecting an attorney:
A) Experience; B) Results; C) Reputation; D) Resources; and E) Commitment.

 

A. Experience: In a serious medical malpractice case too much is at stake to trust your future (or the future of a loved one) to inexperienced counsel.

The Medlaw Legal Team of Janet, Jenner & Suggs, LLC
has over 100 years of combined legal experience in representing people who have been injured by medical negligence. The experience we bring to aggressively pursuing medical malpractice claims includes formal medical training. When you hire the Medlaw Legal Team you have physician and registered nurse attorneys fighting for you. You are able to tap into their reservoir of medical training and knowledge to quickly analyze your potential malpractice claim. In fact, the Medlaw Legal Team of Janet, Jenner & Suggs, LLC has uncovered viable malpractice claims that other attorneys have missed.

Experience also counts once the negligent doctor or nurse hires “experts” to defend their care. These defense “experts” have been known to try to confuse inexperienced and untrained counsel (and the jury) with medical terms and erroneous statements concerning what is acceptable medical practice and sound medical science. That is when you want lawyers who are trained doctors or nurses fighting for you— advocates who understand medicine and can cut through the smoke and reveal the truth to the jury.

Finally, experience counts when the battle crosses over from medical issues to legal issues. You want attorneys who are experienced in performing thorough legal reasearch and producing compelling legal briefs. Through its research and advocacy, the Medlaw Legal Team of Janet, Jenner & Suggs, LLC has worked to create new law expanding the rights of the injured, such as: Establishing the right of brain damaged children to receive compensation for future life care expenses when their parents’ claim for those expenses is barred; Enabling malpractice victims to hold negligent physician-employees of the District of Columbia accountable even when their employer is immune from being sued; and, Declaring that physician fraud in concealing the cause of death will extend the deadline for filing a wrongful death action.

 


B. Results
: Even though the value of a case is dependent upon the facts of the particular matter, and thus, past successes do not necessarily indicate what future results will be, when you look to hire a medical malpractice and pharmaceutical liability law firm you should consider whether the firm has a proven record of success in handling serious medical malpractice actions.

The Medlaw Legal Team of Janet, Jenner & Suggs, LLC has obtained record setting verdicts and settlements that have been reported in USA Today, Dateline NBC, the Washington Post, by television affiliates of ABC, CBS and NBC, and in other national media. (Click here to read about some of our verdicts and settlements.)

 


C. Reputation
: In selecting the lawyers who will be your representatives, you want aggressive advocates with a reputation for high professional standards, high ethics and success.

The Medlaw Legal Team of Janet, Jenner & Suggs, LLC is recognized among the most distinguished law firms in the United States in the Martindale-Hubbell® Bar Register of Pre-eminent Lawyers™ and has received the highest rating for ethical conduct and professional excellence offered by Martindale-Hubbell® (“AV”). This rating is based upon responses to surveys conducted of attorneys and judges.

D. Resources
: Pursuing a single medical malpractice claims can cost over One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000.00). Therefore, you want lawyers working for you who are willing and able to invest the money and effort necessary to hire nationally renowned experts, to take the required discovery, and to put you into the best position for success.

If you have suffered a serious injury from medical malpractice, the Medlaw Legal Team of Janet, Jenner & Suggs, LLC has the resources to pursue your case aggressively and thoroughly.

 


E. Commitment
: You want a law firm with a passion for seeking justice on behalf of people who have been injured by the carelessness of others.

The Medlaw Legal Team of Janet, Jenner & Suggs, LLChas this commitment and is dedicated to battling for the injured. Put the Medlaw Legal Team to work for you.

Is there a time limit on bringing a malpractice claim?

YES. Each state (and the United States for health care provided by the federal government or its agencies) has its own statute of limitations establishing a deadline to pursue a malpractice claim. These limits vary greatly from state to state, and often are affected by whether the injured party is an adult or a minor, or whether the negligence was caused by a private health care provider or a public entity (for example, a city, state or federal hospital or clinic or its employees).

Therefore, if you suspect medical negligence do not wait to consult experienced medical malpractice counsel-- The clock is ticking.

Will my case settle?

Most medical negligence cases handled by the Medlaw Legal Team of Janet, Jenner & Suggs, LLC settle prior to trial; however, your goal should not be mere settlement. Your goal should be to obtain that sum of money which fully and fairly compensates you for your injuries. To meet that goal requires aggressive representation. From the beginning, your attorneys must investigate and pursue your claim with an eye toward presenting the strongest possible case before a jury. Only when the negligent doctor and hospital know that your attorneys are able to win a major verdict against them will you be able to obtain, through settlement, the compensation you deserve.

The Medlaw Legal Team of Janet, Jenner & Suggs, LLC provides that type of aggressive representation — we work to maximize our clients’ potential for a full and fair settlement because we prepare each case from the outset as if it were going to trial. Thus, if negotiations fail, our attorneys are poised and ready to present a strong and substantial case to the jury on behalf of our clients.
