Neurontin lawsuits have been initiated or considered across the U.S. as the number of individuals harmed by Neurontin treatment rises. These lawsuits target the manufacturer and marketer of Neurontin: Parke-Davis, a subsidiary of pharma giant Pfizer. The lawsuits may also target the physician or other healthcare provider who prescribed Neurontin (gabapentin).
A Neurontin lawsuit should be handled only by an experienced product liability or medical malpractice law firm or solo attorney, in light of the complexity of medication-related injuries or deaths. The law firm or attorney's primary goal is to secure financial compensation when appropriate for losses such as:
- Medical costs to treat Neurontin-related illnesses (such as Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, a debilitating and sometimes fatal skin disease linked to Neurontin)
- Lost ability to work and obtain income
- Loss of a loved one
- In-home nursing care
- Rehabilitation (medical and/or occupational)
Who Qualifies for a Neurontin Lawsuit?
When Neurontin treatment harms the patient, or even results in his or her death, the patient or the surviving spouse, children or other family members may qualify for a Neurontin lawsuit. Medical malpractice and product liability lawsuits seek to obtain a settlement or a court award that fairly compensates the injured for their losses, but before a settlement or award is obtained, the circumstances of a given case must be determined.
For example, the cause of a side effect or a death may not be immediately clear, particularly when the injured individual was taking more than one medication, as is common. Alternatively, the injury or death may have other contributing causes, such as the patient's non-compliance with one or more medications, or other patient behaviors. Experienced and knowledgeable attorneys can help determine the causation behind an injury or death.
