Dangerous Prescription Drug Cases

Each year, thousands of Americans suffer diseases, side effects and increased risks caused by prescription drugs they thought would help them. We represent these victims of defective drugs against major pharmaceutical manufacturers and distributors. We have litigated several large scale class action lawsuits as well as several mass tort actions for those individuals that were personally injured or killed as a result of their use of prescription drugs.
