We have been representing patients and their family in drug injury lawsuits for the past 15 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 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, 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.

Jardiance is part of the Sodium-Glucose Co-Transporter-2 (SGLT-2) Inhibitors class of diabetes drugs, which also includes Invokana and Farxiga.
The financial analysts who focus on the pharmaceutical sector were all abuzz earlier this week as regards an announcement about a new medical study concerning Jardiance.
From an August 20, 2015 Forbes article, “Sweet Victory: Eli Lilly’s Jardiance Is First Diabetes Drug To Reduce Heart Attacks And Strokes”, by reporter Matthew Herper, we get a sense of that excitement:
A big win for Eli Lilly this morning. Its diabetes drug Jardiance, co-marketed with Boehringer Ingelheim, is the first blood-sugar lowering pill ever to reduce the risk of heart attacks, strokes, and cardiovascular deaths in a big study, according to a press release issued this morning.
Of course, we need to wait to see full details from the study, not just the press release Lilly and Boehringer issued this morning….
However, despite this glory-moment for Eli Lilly and Boehringer, all is not well for Jardiance as well as the other SGLT-2 inhibitors such as Invokana and Farxiga.
This situation becomes apparent by the titles of these earlier articles:
Accordingly, we are anxious to see the September 2015 medical journal article which will have more details about this recent Jardiance study, and possibly some discussion about the side-effects risks associated with Jardiance.
