Getting a prescription for a new medication is a hopeful time for many people, as it represents an opportunity for them to take control of their health by treating their illnesses and managing their symptoms. Most patients trust that the medications they take are safe and effective, but not all prescription drugs are as safe and well-tolerated as their manufacturers want you to believe.
At Ponce Law, our Nashville drug injury lawyers know how effective certain medications can be for people suffering from injuries or health problems—but we also know that they’re capable of causing devastating health complications.
If you suspect you or someone you love is suffering from a drug injury, it’s important that you avoid making these two mistakes to protect your health and your rights to compensation:
Stopping the medication without speaking to your doctor – Many people search the internet for potential drug injury symptoms after taking medications, but the symptoms they’re experiencing aren’t always due to the drugs they were prescribed. Never stop taking a medication without consulting your doctor, as your health problems could be unrelated to your medication.
Waiting too long to get medical attention – While you should never stop taking a medication without supervision, you also shouldn’t wait too long to have your symptoms examined by a doctor. Drug injuries can quickly worsen, and if you wait too long to speak with your doctor about your concerns, your health may become seriously compromised.
After you’ve been treated and a healthcare provider has determined that you were harmed by a prescription drug, it’s time to get experienced legal advocacy on your side. Call us today for a free consultation—we’re here to help.

Always very professional. When we first called we had no idea if we even had a case, they told us we did. And even though the resolution took a little bit longer than expected, the wait was worth it. They get results and I really appreciated that they consistently gave me updates on the status of my case without me even asking. Thank you Ponce Law!

HEAR IT STRAIGHT FROM OUR CLIENTS
My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!
The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
Out of nowhere… Come a car and she hit us head-on. I thought for a moment that my wife was going to die, you know… But we’re all good! I just needed to find somebody that would have our back… I chose Michael because he’s going to be upfront with ya, he will definitely have your back!
