Prescription Drugs Involved in Personal Injury Lawsuits
Drug Injury Header Drug Injury Header

When a doctor prescribes medication to help you manage your health problems, you trust it to be safe and effective. You certainly do not expect the medication to be more harmful than helpful. Pharmaceutical companies should not profit by selling drugs they know to be defective, and they certainly should be held accountable when they do.

We have been representing personal injury clients against the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world since 1955. Each year we help teach more than 1,000 attorneys how to successfully handle these types of cases. Below is a sample of our current and previous litigation.
