Dangerous Drugs

An original translation of the Hippocratic oath from the 4th Century B.C. states in pertinent part:

"I will prescribe regimens for the good of my patients according to my ability and my judgment and never do harm to anyone. To please no one will I prescribe a deadly drug nor give advice which may cause his death."

We believe this was good advice that should be embraced by health care providers and pharmaceutical companies alike.

Drugs are a cornerstone of modern medicine. When properly used and tested, drugs have the potential to cure disease, alleviate pain, and save lives. However, when improperly tested, and prematurely dumped on the consuming public by pharmaceutical companies eager to make a profit at any cost, drugs can devastate lives and cause early death. We know this from the likes of drugs like THALIDOMIDE, which caused babies across the world to be born with severe defects of arms and limbs. More recently, the public has been bombarded with a series of defective pharmaceuticals, such as BEXTRA, VIOXX, FEN-PHEN, and ACUTANE, to name a few.

As is obvious from glossy advertising campaigns on television and print media, drug manufacturers want you to spend as much money as possible treating illness. Drug companies have made billions upon billions of dollars marketing their drugs, many of which were not only unsafe, but which actually caused disease and injury.

As plaintiff's lawyers, we want to make sure that drug companies who profit at the expense of the consuming public absorb their share of responsibility for the harm they cause. If you believe you have been injured by a pharmaceutical you are taking, do not hesitate to contact our attorneys for a free case evaluation. Be prepared to discuss (1) the exact drugs your are taking or have taken; (2) the duration of your treatment with the drug; and (3) the injuries you have suffered.
