Paxil Attorneys Versus Class Action Drug Toxic Chemicals
Free Case Evaluation From An Experienced Drug Liability Attorney.
It seems like common knowledge that Paxil causes increased suicidal tendencies and that some people can’t stop taking it due to the side effects of withdrawal. Why should I go to an attorney when it seems that I should be able to negotiate a settlement with the company on my own? Or would there be a benefit to joining a class action in my case?
It seems, at first glance, that you can save some money by negotiating with GlaxoSmithKline if you or a loved one has suffered from increased suicidal tendencies. However, you place your case at great risk by doing this. Large pharmaceutical companies, such as GlaxoSmithKline, have large legal departments with highly trained, experienced attorneys to defend them. The companies that insure GlaxoSmithKline also have experienced legal staffs and insurance adjusters, and in some cases, outside counsel may be brought in to help with a particular case.
If you choose to represent yourself, even if you think the case will only be negotiated and not go to trial, you will be up against some of the toughest and most experienced attorneys and insurance adjustors in the industry. You need to remember that their sole interest is in minimizing or completely denying any liability on the part of their client, even if that means that you do not receive the compensation to which you are entitled. Everything that you do or say will be scrutinized to see if it can be used to limit the company’s liability. And if your case does end up in court, you will be held to the same standards and the same deadlines as an experienced attorney.
Attorneys who handle personal injury cases usually take the case on a “contingency” fee basis. This means that part of your settlement or recovery, typically 1/3, will go to the law firm as compensation for their work. It also means that if they are unable to recover any money for you, you will not owe them anything for their legal services. This way, you can get good legal representation without having to pay a large retainer fee that you probably can’t afford. And while the percentage that the law firm retains may seem like a great deal, when you consider the amount of time, effort, and resources that go into the preparation of your case as well as the risk that the firm will not be compensated for any of it, you will see why these contingency arrangements are fair to both sides.
Your attorney will also be able to advise you whether it would make more sense to handle your case alone or as part of a class action. Some cases have unusual fact situations or will be making new law in the place where they are brought, and need to be handled as individual cases. However, many cases have a lot of things in common, and can be dealt with as part of a larger class action case. While it is true that most cases handled individually end up settling for more money, that is usually because there is something unusual about the case that makes it worth more money. Deciding whether to pursue a case individually or as part of a class action is an important decision. In many cases, once you make that decision, you will be unable to change it later. Your attorney can help you decide how best to handle your case.
