Drug Company Negligence
A large majority of Americans take at least one prescription drug on a daily basis. Statistics indicate that approximately 65 percent of all Americans take prescription drugs, spending hundreds of billions of dollars a year on prescriptions.
Prescription drugs are intended to either cure one’s ailment or to control symptoms of a condition, but when companies manufacture and produce harmful products, they are putting innocent lives at risk of an injury.
As more drugs become available and pharmaceutical products play an increasingly central role in treatment, the risk of a patient suffering harm increases as well.
Cases We Handle
Alarming reports indicate that close to 100,000 Americans die every year from side effects of harmful prescription drugs. This is more than twice the number of people who die each year in car accidents.
When companies release drugs to the market that have not been properly tested, or when those companies fail to disclose known dangers, patients are bound to suffer.
Typically, we would expect to assist clients with the following concerns:
- Drug recalls
- Drug contamination
- False claims
Our experienced medical malpractice lawyers can help you with holding negligent pharmaceutical manufacturers liable for injuries their products cause.
