As part of its wrongful death and personal injury practice, our law office represents victims of dangerous prescription drugs and treatments. California residents, after all, have the right to expect that the drugs that are on the shelves of this state's pharmacies are safe to use as prescribed.
When this turns out not to be the case, as is the situation all too often, a person can either die or be left permanently debilitated because of the drug. Unfortunately, many pharmaceutical companies try to avoid responsibility for these tragedies in an effort to be able to protect brand to pay as little in compensation as possible to the victims.
Our office is currently investigating several drugs that have had serious side effects. For instance, some of these drugs are known to have caused liver damage or even cardiac arrest, both of which are well-known as life-threatening conditions. We are committed to uncovering the truth about these drugs and holding the manufacturers of them accountable.
These efforts support the overall mission of a firm when we take on a wrongful death case. While we recognize that nothing can bring back a person who died unnecessarily, we do not see our role as just getting compensation for our clients so they can recover financially from their loss. We also do what we can to "right the wrong" that caused the death in the first place. In the case of drug-related litigation, righting could mean pressuring the manufacturer to take the dangerous product off the market or make adjustments to the product in order to prevent future tragedies.
