Frequently Asked Questions About Cymbalta Litigation

If you had a traumatic and life-changing experience during or after taking the anti-depressant Cymbalta, you may be questioning whether your rights have been violated and whether the drug maker owes you for your painful struggle below are some frequently asked questions by Cymbalta victims when visiting a Cymbalta law firm for the first time:

What is the time commitment involved with civil litigation against a drug maker?
In many cases, it can take a number of years for a dangerous drug case to reach resolution. Most times, the drug maker is willing to offer a settlement to victims in order to make the problem “go away” and avoid judgments or negative press. In some instances, the drug maker will remain adamant that it has not violated any civil or criminal laws and will advance the litigation to trial – which can be a significant time investment. Particularly if you are joining a class action, there are a number of procedural steps to work through before a resolution occurs and compensation is received.

Is it worth the time and effort?
Absolutely. While the Cymbalta law firm works tirelessly to prepare a case and defend its position, more and more Cymbalta patients are facing severe injury or death as a result of the drug – all while the drug company gets richer and richer. A Cymbalta lawsuit can not only hit the drug maker where it hurts – its bottom line – but can also raise awareness to other Cymbalta patients or those who may be considering taking the drug. Plus, at the end of the litigation, if you are successful, you stand to receive compensation for your injuries, lost wages or pain and suffering endured as a result of the drug’s side effects.

How much money will I receive from the drug company?
The answer to this question depends on a number of factors, including the severity of your injuries and the strength of your claim. Drug companies like Eli Lilly are only willing to settle cases they are fairly certain they will lose at a trial before a jury. The drug company’s lawyers will evaluate every detail of your claim to determine whether there is a strong chance the drug caused your injuries and if there are any potential defenses to your claim. As well, a Cymbalta law firm can never guarantee the outcome of your case, even if it seems unbeatable at the outset.
