Nexium Lawsuits, Do I Have a Case?
How do you know if you have a case? If you have any sudden bone fracture caused by taking Nexium you will likely have a case. However there are certain factors to consider, such as whether any pre-existing history of osteoporosis exist and age considerations. Most injured parties do not pursue a claim because they don’t believe they have a case. In a lot of cases the injuries can occur at work.
Often times these injuries are covered under workers compensation benefits, but you may have an independent claim against Nexium manufacturers for injuries. When there is a independent 3rd party responsible for your injuries i.e. Nexium manufacturer.
Common injuries can include broken ankle, foot or other sudden bone fractures. Many times these injuries while you are walking or NOT performing any type of strenuous or labor intensive activity. In fact the injuries would occur by simply walking or even sitting.
These injuries would subject the victim to long term therapy and other associated treatment. In certain cases the bone structure and density can change to the point where no therapy would not be possible. This can cause a lifetime of pain and suffering. Some cases subject the patient to receiving certain injections for pain and other surgeries. As a result substantial medical bills can amount, which may not be covered by your insurance provider, requiring you to pay for such expenses out of pocket.
