As a nation, we take more prescriptions than ever before. In many cases, the new drugs that come out every year cost more than the ones they are designed to replace. Unfortunately for patients, industry practices and medical mistakes can lead to drugs causing more harm than good.
At Cory Watson Attorneys, our experienced drug injury lawyers represent victims harmed by dangerous, unsafe, and recalled drugs nationwide.
Our law firm can investigate drug injuries caused by any prescription or over-the-counter drug, whether or not it was recalled. Contact our attorneys today for a free, confidential case review—just call (877) 562-0000 or complete the free initial consultation form on this page to get started.
Profits at the Expense of Safety
Drug manufacturers compete to market so-called “blockbuster” drugs — products that generate $1 billion or more a year. Annually, pharmaceutical companies spend twice as much on marketing their drugs as they spend on drug safety research. These new drugs are frequently reformulations of older, cheaper drugs with new packaging and much higher prices.
We represent clients with the following drug injury cases:
- Essure Birth Control
- Heartburn Drugs
The potential benefits of these drugs are highlighted in marketing materials, while significant risks are downplayed. And unfortunately for patients, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) often requests stricter warning labels for drugs after innocent people suffer more harm than good.
By the time most drugs are recalled, hundreds or even thousands of people have been put at risk—all in the name of profit for big drug companies.
