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.

Invokana Lawsuits Filed While FDA Investigates Side Effects Reports
SUMMARY: Invokana — first available in 2014 — is part of a new class of diabetes medications called Sodium-Glucose Co-Transporter-2 (SGLT2) Inhibitors, which also these drugs:
Invokamet — first available in 2014
Farxiga — first available in 2014
Xigduo XR — first available in 2014
Jardiance — first available in 2014
Glyxambi — first available in 2015
As some of you know, often the serious side effects of new drugs are not recognized until after FDA approval and they are used by a larger patient population than was observed or studied in the earlier clinical trials.
And this seems to be the case with Invokana, Farxiga, Jardiance, and these other new diabetes drugs, as there are now numerous adverse event report which associate them with these side effects:
• Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA), Ketoacidosis, or Ketosis
• Heart Attacks / Myocardial Infarctions (MI)
• Ischemic Stroke / Cerebral Vascular Accident (CVA)
• Kidney Damage / Renal Failure
• Heart Failure
And, in fact, reports of side effects related to Invokana, Farxiga, and Jardiance have gotten the attention of the FDA and other drug regulators.
With these investigations by drug regulators there are, also, investigations by drug injury lawyers into possible lawsuits for people with Type-2 diabetes who used one of these SGLT2 diabetes drugs and developed ketoacidosis or kidney failure, as well as when these diabetics suffer a heart attack (MI), stroke (CVA), or heart failure.
