Don't tell me that this does not involve being a lawyer. Or course it does. Third Wave lawyers understand the importance of collaboration. They understand referrals and networking. But, where bigger, more established law firms might have a deeper reservoir of cash and experience in taking on Big Pharma and their Big Law firms, there is so much more that needs to be done in terms of client solicitation, consulting with, advising and working with the clients or those injured by defective drugs. Too little attention is given to hand holding with clients and their families who have been harmed. Much comes from a lawyer who can dedicate themselves to helping a client through the process of finding specialized legal counsel and keeping them apprised of the process and progress.
Harmaceuticals are those FDA approved medications that are released for public consumption by pharmaceutical companies only to find out they were marketed for purposes not intended, or recalled because of undisclosed issues and fatalities. Some might call it defective drug law.
Some of these cases are brought as class actions. Some are brought one case at a time. It is a complicated process, and large dedicated law firms have established that can both carry the financial weight of this process, and which can fully understand the medicine and chemistry involved.
What these dedicated law firms lack, of course, are clients who have been harmed. These firms are often distant, and potential clients need explanation and understanding. They need direction. That is best served on a local level.
There are any number of firms that handle harmaceutical litigation. Many welcome and solicit referrals.
