Columbia Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Pharmaceutical science has provided us with many life-changing and life-saving drugs. But some pharmaceutical manufacturers take shortcuts during the product development process or choose ignore dangerous side effects. The result can be medications that are dangerous to people who take those drugs and to unborn children.

The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) is charged with ensuring that pharmaceutical products are safe and do not harm the public. It is overworked, understaffed and must rely on information given to them by the very companies whose products they are policing.

We see too many examples of drug manufacturers who have rushed a product through FDA approval without adequate testing or a thorough understanding of all of its effects. We have even seen cases where drug companies deliberately hid information about the negative side effects of their drugs. These large multi-national drug manufacturers spend hundreds of millions of dollars researching and developing new products. By the time they get their drugs to the FDA approval stage they are so eager to recoup their investment that they can turn a blind eye to the dangerous side effects of their products.

We help even the playing field by holding these companies responsible when they put corporate profits over the public’s safety and welfare. If you have been hurt by a drug that has been rushed to market or not adequately tested, we can help you.
