Pharmaceutical companies are quickly becoming titans of industry. The World Health Organization estimates that the global pharmaceutical industry is currently worth $300 billion, and will expand to a whopping $400 billion over the next three years.
Every time we open a prescription bottle or go under the knife, we are placing our lives in the hands of one of these massive businesses. We trust that the companies behind each pill, injection, or device have put the research and care necessary into each product to ensure safety. As pharmaceutical companies switched their focus from people to profits, however, the risk of injury from supposedly “safe” drugs has grown.
Dangerous Drugs and Defective Devices: What You Can Do
Whether you suffered an injury or lost a loved one due to a drug company’s or a medical device company’s negligence, you deserve answers and compensation. These companies are legally required to thoroughly test and inspect their products to ensure that you will not be harmed. If an unsafe drug or medical device makes it to market and someone suffers as a result, you are entitled to expect that those responsible will be held accountable.
Product liability law demands that the makers of unsafe or defective products be held responsible. If your injuries or losses are the result of a defective drug, there are likely many other people like you that are looking for similar answers and accountability from the drug companies. Our law firm can represent your individual case within a mass tort claim of other injured parties; this ensures that your case benefits from the group’s investigation while still obtaining the highest possible settlement for you.

Over the years, many people have suffered terrible illnesses and death from medicines and devices that were supposed to make their lives better.
