The drug industry has become big business. Whether you're talking about prescription medications or over-the-counter drugs, the sale of these drugs brings in tens of billions of dollars a year. And as our drug injury attorneys have seen entirely too often, this sort of profit motive can prove dangerous.
Because there's so much money at stake, some pharmaceutical companies are inclined to cut corners in research, development and marketing. And when they do, innocent people can suffer severe personal injuries – including death.
The good news is that our experienced drug injury attorneys can help you pursue justice and compensation if you or a family member has been hurt by a defective drug. You are not alone.

Examples of Defective Drug Cases
Drug injury cases can take a number of different forms. In some cases, drugs are simply too dangerous – they're designed or manufactured poorly, and they pose a serious risk to the health and well-being of users.
In other cases, the drugs do real good and can absolutely help people, but only in certain contexts, and only if the drug is marketed clearly and properly. In many of these cases, pharmaceutical companies market the drugs in a way that minimizes their side effects. In other cases, these companies push doctors to prescribe drugs for so-called off-label uses – in order words, to treat conditions that the drugs aren't approved to treat.
Sadly, these cases are not rare. In fact, they occur far too often. Seemingly every day there are new stories about drugs being recalled or lawsuits being filed in federal court.
Here's a short list of just a few of the drugs that have seen legal cases attached to them:
This is not a comprehensive list. But it does provide you with a clear sense of just how extensive the problems associated with high-value pharmaceuticals really are.
