Ethical dilemma?

What's the best way to get your doctor's help when you've sustained injury from a medical product?  I understand that physicians don't want to tie up their time doing paperwork and answering questions from an attorney, however, don't they have an ethical obligation to "do no harm" and doesn't that include helping the patient when a large drug/pharmaceutical company has hurt them with a harmful product?
Maybe I'm being too much of an idealist...?

Hi there!

You could consult a medico-legal/ forensic science expert since they would be best suited for handling legal issues and should be able to get expert advice in medico-legal situations.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
