Stopping the Harm Caused by Bad Drugs
It happens over and over again. A big pharmaceutical company puts a new drug on the market, advertises its benefits and rakes in the profits. When patients begin having adverse reactions, it turns out the drug company already knew about the problems.
The pharmaceutical litigation attorneys of Girardi | Keese want to put a stop to this practice of choosing profits over the health and welfare of patients. That is why we were the first law firm to file litigation against Vioxx. That is why pharmaceutical litigation is a top priority among our lawyers.
Dangerous prescription drugs cause serious injury and even death. In many of these cases, the drug maker should be held accountable. If you or a loved one has been injured, request a consultation at 800-401-4530.
