We have been representing patients and their families in drug injury lawsuits for the past fifteen years and it is our main practice area.
Drug injury legal compensation cases involve personal injury or wrongful death claims filed on behalf of people who, unfortunately, experienced a serious side effect, had an adverse drug reaction, or died from their use of a prescription medication.
Given our many years of experience handling these types of lawsuits we know drug injury cases deserve special attention.
Drug injury claims have a personal aspect which must be appreciated and respected by the attorney handling your case. At our law firm, we do not underestimate nor lose sight of the trust which is being placed in us by clients when they select us to represent them for their lawsuit against the responsible pharmaceutical company.
We will handle your drug injury case not only competently and professionally, but with genuine care and understanding. Any inquiries from our clients are responded to promptly, and telephone calls are always returned without delay.
If you, relatives, or friends need legal advice or legal representation for a personal injury lawsuit or a wrongful death lawsuit involving a drug side effect, the Law Offices of Thomas J. Lamb is here to help.
We encourage you to submit a Drug Injury Law Case Review — it is free, confidential, and there is no obligation. Or, if you prefer, call our toll-free number, (800) 426-9535, to speak directly to attorney Tom Lamb about a possible drug injury case. Either way, you will get Mr. Lamb’s impressions — not an intake person, a paralegal, nor some other lawyer — about your case based on his many years of experience.
We handle these drug injury cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning that there is no payment for our legal services until we are successful in getting legal compensation for you.
While our office is in Wilmington, North Carolina, we have successfully handled drug injury lawsuits for people all over the United States.
It is important to note that we do not put our clients into large class actions. Rather we favor an individual lawsuit approach, which allows us to give personal attention to each of our clients, from start to finish.

Cymbalta Discontinuation Syndrome / Symptoms Include “Brain Zaps”, Extreme Mood Swings (anger, irritability), And Neurological Or Physical Problems
SUMMARY: The Prescribing Information, or drug label, for Cymbalta (duloxetine) indicates that stopping this drug is no more problematic than other SSRIs and SNRIs (serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors).
But then there are allegations made by patients and their advocates that the effects of Cymbalta withdrawal can be severe, and extend for weeks or even months. According to this item found on the FDA’s website, “Cymbalta (Duloxetine) Discontinuation Syndrome — Issues of Scope, Severity, Duration & Management”, these conditions include:
• Extreme mood swings (anger, irritability)
• Debilitating “Brain Zaps”
• Physical and neurological problems
As a result of this situation, lawsuits have been filed against Eli Lilly by some patients alleging Cymbalta caused withdrawal reactions and injuries when they discontinued or attempted to stop using Cymbalta.
