Pharmaceutical Litigation

It is estimated that every year approximately 200,000 Americans die from prescription drug adverse reactions and side effects. In fact, it is widely believed that more Americans die as a result of prescription drug interactions or side effects that from using illegal drugs. Furthermore, thousands of Americans are seriously injured and sometimes die from adverse reactions and side effects associated with common over-the-counter medications.
The Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is under constant pressure from drug manufacturers to approve drugs quickly, which in many cases proves to be premature. Many prescription drugs that undergo FDA review, are given "fast track" status which greatly reduces the time it usually takes to get drugs approved. Often, the end result is drugs are approved before all the side effects are noticed and can ultimately do much greater harm than good.
We have been in the forefront of the fight to protect the public against dangerous prescription and over-the-counter drugs.
