Pharmaceutical Litigation Attorney
Current Pharmaceutical Litigation
Every year, thousands are injured or killed by prescription drugs and over-the-counter medication. Many people are also injured or killed by defective or faulty medical devices.
The lawyers at Pittman, Dutton & Hellums have experience representing people who have been injured by unsafe drugs and medical devices. Over the years, we have successfully litigated and settled thousands of lawsuits on behalf of people injured by unsafe pharmaceutical drugs and defective medical devices.
Drug manufacturers compete to market so-called “blockbuster” drugs with the expectation of generating massive annual profits. Unfortunately, these drugs are oftentimes merely reformulations of older, cheaper drugs with new packaging and a much higher price. The potential benefits of these drugs are highlighted while the significant risks are downplayed. Eventually, putting profits over the customer’s health catches up with these companies but usually not before hundreds, even thousands, of individuals are needlessly injured by these drugs.
If you or someone you know was injured or killed by a pharmaceutical drug or medical device, contact Pittman, Dutton & Hellums today.
