Injured by a defective drug?
If you’re injured by a defective drug, YOU NEED A LAWYER.
Why do I need a lawyer if I’ve been injured by a defective drug?
You need a lawyer because big-pharma is prepared to fight to ensure you don’t get the COMPENSATION YOU DESERVE. In fact, unfortunately, the largest and most powerful pharmaceutical companies build potential lawsuits into their business and profit models. In today’s world, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that corporations put PROFITS OVER PEOPLE and the pharmaceutical industry is well-known to do just that. Often, pharmaceutical companies weigh the cost of defending lawsuits and paying out judgements and settlements against the profits to be made from making and marketing potentially harmful drugs. Therefore, if you or a loved one are hurt or killed by a defective drug you need a lawyer to FIGHT FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY to ensure you’re recognized for what you are, a person with rights – not just a part of their profits.
