Suing Abilify-makers for giving you a gambling addiction in Nevada

Posted by Neil Shouse | Nov 10, 2017 | 0 Comments

Anti-psychotic drug Abilify is prescribed to treat depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, Tourette's syndrome, or autism. However, it causes some patients to develop compulsive behaviors, including gambling. This can be especially hazardous to patients living in Las Vegas, where numerous casinos are waiting to feed their urges.

Abilify

Fortunately, patients usually cease these obsessive behaviors once their physician takes them off Abilify and prescribes something better. And these patients can try to bring a negligence lawsuit against Abilify's manufacturer to recover damages for:

The lawsuit could allege how Abilify's manufacturer (1) behaved negligently in not warning doctors that patients could develop compulsive habits, (2) obscured evidence of patients' increased risk of compulsive habits, and (3) misrepresented the drug's efficacy.

Patients harmed by Abilify in Nevada can bring a negligence lawsuit against the manufacturer within two (2) years from the injury. The patient's personal injury attorney would try to negotiate a settlement in an effort to avoid trial.  And any ethical personal injury attorney would refuse to take a penny as payment unless the patient's case is successful.
