For years, Abilify users were completely unaware that while their prescription was combating depression or other psychotic conditions, in some cases it was also triggering the development of various compulsive behaviors including gambling.
Bristol-Myers Squibb neglected to properly test or disclose the health dangers of their popular antipsychotic. In acting with such neglect, Bristol-Myers Squibb subjected their consumers to side effects that in many cases were extremely detrimental to their quality of life.
Those who were subjected to Abilify and the health complications it reportedly triggers can now pursue justice against Bristol-Myers Squibb. All those who have suffered as a result of taking Abilify and developing a subsequent gambling compulsion can now file a lawsuit against Bristol-Myers Squibb citing their neglect in handling Abilify.
If you believe that you are one of these victims, you can begin the process of pursuing legal action against Bristol-Myers Squibb.
How Do I File An Abilify Compulsive Gambling Lawsuit?
Beginning an Abilify compulsive gambling lawsuit requires an initial contact with a skilled attorney who is well-versed in the unique dangerous drug lawsuit process.
Once an attorney has been contacted and has determined that they believe your situation may qualify as an Abilify compulsive gambling occurrence, they will submit an order to acquire all medical records.
Medical records will immediately be distributed to a trained medical staff who will launch a thorough investigation into the medical history of the person in question.
The goal of the investigation is to confirm that the medical records support the claim that compulsive gambling was developed and that it was developed while on a prescription for Abilify.
If the investigation can confirm that the development of a compulsive gambling condition occurred during an Abilify prescription, the victim will be able to begin working with an attorney to create a strong case against Bristol-Myers Squibb.
Once an attorney has been contacted, a majority of the steps leading up to the filing of the lawsuit will be handled by the attorney. With the attorney handling a majority of the responsibility, any victim will have the ability to live their life and focus on recovery while their due justice is pursued.
Is There A Deadline To File An Abilify Compulsive Gambling Lawsuit?
State deadlines are frequently cited as one of the most common reasons a dangerous drug lawsuit is unable to be filed. If any relevant state deadline is missed, the victim will be ineligible to pursue any legal action against Bristol-Myers Squibb.
Deadlines are decided on a state-basis and frequently differ from state to state. To learn about your respective state dangerous drug lawsuit deadlines, click here.
