Using a Network To Establish Your Case Evidence
One of the most stressful parts of a personal injury case is the uncertainty. Despite the obvious harm, you may not have irrefutable proof of what went wrong and when.
We're here to build cases. That means that we can get to the root of your damages, determining who caused them and how. If we take your case, we will investigate it thoroughly.
Our lawyers and paralegals will work in conjunction with experts in relevant medical fields, including pharmacologists and chemists. We can find out who failed you and how they did so.

- Determine standard of care failures
- Evaluate injuries
- Review medical records
- Examine prescription content
Keeping Evidence Can Sway Your Case in Your Favor
It can be hard to know what to do when you or a loved one has been affected by pharmacy and medication errors. There is no action that can truly repair the damage or loss caused by a pharmacist providing the wrong medication.
Despite all the anxiety and uncertainty, you can take back control. If a medical product, like pills, has caused adverse reactions or medical problems, you should stop taking it.
However, you should also keep it around, as it may act as crucial evidence in your case. We have chemists and pharmacologists that can determine important information for your case via testing.
