Palm Springs Dangerous Drug Attorney

Suing for Harmful Prescription Drugs & Pharmaceuticals

Americans have developed a shocking dependence on a variety of prescription drugs, from antidepressants and sleep medications to painkillers and drugs for treating high blood pressure. A recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that over the past 10 years, the number of people in the United States who take at least 1 prescription drug rose to 48%, while people who use 2 or more drugs constitute 31% of the population, and an astonishing 11% of people in this country use 5 or more prescription drugs on a monthly basis.

While countless people enjoy significant relief from their symptoms by taking these drugs, many have been caused to suffer serious side effects that cause illness or even death. Fortunately, it is often possible to hold a drug manufacturer accountable for selling dangerous drugs, giving the victim or the surviving family members an opportunity to obtain compensation and justice.

Taking on Big Pharma and winning can be a challenging proposition, to say the least. The combined revenues of the top 5 pharmaceutical companies reached nearly $249 billion in 2009. These companies have vast resources at their disposal for defending against lawsuits, and their bottom line is a major incentive to prevent any damage to their public image. When you need to file a product liability claim over a dangerous prescription medication, it is vital that you find an attorney who is capable of effectively handling your case. Come to Stern Law Group, where we have won more than $700 million in compensation for our clients.

Examples of Pharmaceutical Liability and Litigation

Negligence by large drug companies is well documented. There have been several notable cases in the news in recent years, such as the arthritis drug Vioxx, which was found to increase the risk of heart attacks. More recently, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) was ordered to pay a $3 billion fine for health care fraud — the largest such fine in history — based on charges that included bribing doctors to prescribe its drugs and illegally promoting the dangerous antidepressant Paxil for use in children.

GSK initially promoted the drug as being a non-habit-forming medicaiton, but the World Health Organization later ranked it as being the most difficult antidepressant for a patient to withdraw from after use. In cases such as these, the victims of the company's negligence are entitled to full compensation, whether the company failed to conduct adequate testing or knowingly brought a dangerous product to market. Contact our firm now to discuss your case with a Palm Springs personal injury lawyer and find out whether you have grounds to sue the drug company.
