We have been representing patients and their family in drug injury lawsuits for the past 16 years and this 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 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, or 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.

Legal & Medical News: Featured Article
In two medical study reports it seemed that Xarelto (rivaroxaban) was more likely to be involved in a serious bleeding event as an adverse reaction than was either Pradaxa (dabigatran) or Eliquis (apixaban).
Earlier this month the medical journal Chest published this article, “Direct comparison of dabigatran, rivaroxaban, and apixaban for effectiveness and safety in nonvalvular atrial fibrillation”.
Also earlier this month, JAMA Internal Medicine published this article, “Stroke, bleeding, and mortality risks in elderly Medicare beneficiaries treated with dabigatran or rivaroxaban for nonvalvular atrial fibrillation.”
We get these insights from this October 7, 2016 article, “More NOAC Comparisons See Higher Bleeding Risk With Rivaroxaban: Is the ‘Writing on the Wall’?”:
The two new studies [published in the medical journal Chest and JAMA Internal Medicine] come close on the heels of an analysis by Danish researchers comparing [Pradaxa (dabigatran)], [Xarelto (rivaroxaban)], [Eliquis (apixaban)], and warfarin. In that analysis, [Pradaxa (dabigatran)] and [Eliquis (apixaban)] were associated with a significantly decreased risk of ICH compared with warfarin, but [Xarelto (rivaroxaban)] was not, although all three [non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs)] were as effective as warfarin at reducing stroke in atrial fibrillation patients….
To date there are no randomized head-to-head trials comparing the new agents, but that is about to change. [Laila Stærk, MD (Herlev and Gentofte University Hospital, Denmark), who presented that data at the recent European Society of Cardiology Congress 2016,] told TCTMD that a new prospective, cluster randomized trial has just been announced in Denmark that will involve “almost all” hospitals in the country. Designed to run for 4 years, each hospital will just use one of the four approved NOACs ([Pradaxa (dabigatran)], [Xarelto (rivaroxaban)], [Savaysa (edoxaban)], and [Eliquis (apixaban)]) for the period of 1 year, then the next the next year, and so forth. At the end of the 4-year period, every participating hospital will have 1 year’s experience with each of the approved NOACs, with follow-up to continue for several years thereafter. Dubbed DEN-NOAC, the trial will be led by Casper Bang, MD (Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen, Denmark).
Of course, we will continue to monitor the still-emerging safety issues surrounding Eliquis, Savaysa, and Xarelto.
