Prescription Drug Lawsuits
Over 110,000 people die each year in the U.S. alone from prescription drug side effects. This does not include deaths from doctors misprescribing patients, pharmacists incorrectly filling prescriptions, or patients overdosing. Between 1999 and 2006, U.S. hospitalizations for poisonings by prescription drugs increased by 65 percent, and surpassed that of motor vehicle crashes.

Are Prescription Drugs Safe?
Thousands of people are seriously injured by or die every year from prescription and over-the-counter drugs. Adverse reactions to prescription and OTC drugs are one of the leading causes of death in the United States. The drug industry earns billions of dollars in profits every year, but negligence and misconduct by pharmaceutical companies are never acceptable.When your health care provider prescribes a medication to help manage your health condition, you trust it to be safe and effective and do not expect it to be harmful. Pharmaceutical companies should not profit at the expense of individuals when selling drugs that they know are defective.
When the consumers of their medicine are hurt by unexpected adverse reactions or by side effects concealed by the drug manufacturers, those companies inevitably seek to avoid taking any responsibility for the harm they’ve caused.
