The pharmaceutical industry is an extraordinarily big business, involving billions of dollars in sales. Unfortunately, whenever that kind of money is involved, safety can be lost in the shuffle.
Companies push to get drugs on the market as quickly as possible, in order to maximize their profits, and sometimes fail to perform sufficient testing or provide sufficient warnings about the dangers that these drugs present.
This creates a market where dangerous drugs have been made available, resulting in serious injuries and possibly death.
FDA oversight provides, at best, only limited protection for the public, and in the case of some over-the-counter medications, FDA oversight may be nonexistent.
We have a long history of representing people who have been seriously harmed by dangerous drugs. These cases require an in-depth knowledge of the medical issues involved with the particular drug, as well as the manner in which drugs are tested and approved by the FDA.
