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.

A Reversal Agent For Eliquis Currently Under Development Comes Too Late For People With Trauma-Induced Bleeding Incidents, Some Who Bled To Death
SUMMARY: Eliquis currently does not have an approved antidote for a patient experiencing a trauma-induced bleeding event or needing emergency surgery.
In response to the “no-antidote” Eliquis issue, the company Portola Pharmaceuticals has developed a new product, Andexanet alfa, which reverses the effects of Factor Xa inhibitors.
While Portola’s Factor Xa antidote will someday help patients suffering an acute bleed, unfortunately, its eventual and much anticipated FDA-approval is too late for some people who suffered serious bleeding events or bled to death, already.
We are investigating Eliquis-related death cases which involve excessive bleeding as well as other Eliquis side effects such as gastrointestinal (GI) bleeds, rectal bleeding, and brain hemorrhages or intracranial hemorrhages.
