Prescription drugs can be miracles of modern medicine — medications that improve, and often save, lives. But, unfortunately, that hasn’t always been the case. Indeed, over the years, many drugs have actually caused serious harm — and even killed — those who relied on them. And the irony is that much of this harm could have been prevented, had manufacturers not been hesitant to recall dangerous products. Had they not put profits ahead of patients.

Oakland, San Jose, San Mateo & San Francisco Defective Pharmaceutical Lawyers
The law can’t undo the harm defective pharmaceuticals cause, but it can help those who have been hurt — and their families — recover damages. Depending on the circumstances, they may be able to file a lawsuit under theories of negligence or strict product liability (where a manufacturer is liable for the harm its products cause even in the absence of wrongdoing). These suits can’t erase the past, but they can help to assure a better, more secure future — and place accountability where it belongs.
Yet pharmaceutical cases can be some of the most complex matters to see the inside of a courtroom. The drugs are often complicated, the manufacturers powerful and well financed, the legal theories multifaceted. These are cases that require more than competent lawyers — they take a law firm that has mastered the science as well as the law; that can explain difficult concepts to juries; that has the dedication and resources to take on the biggest, most influential drug companies around.
