Pharmaceutical Litigation

About the industry

The revenues of pharmaceutical products in the United States reach close to $200 billion annually. The government has legislated incentives for generic as well as pioneer manufacturers and consumers, which benefits the consumer. While almost half of prescriptions contain generic drugs, this number is growing to reach 58 percent in 2006.

The tragic lies in the trust that all those people place into the pharmaceutical industry in hopes to cure their illness.

Who is to blame?

The question that arises is who to blame for the death of this vast number of innocent people. While consumers assume that it is safe to take a certain drug because the Food and Drug Administration approves both, prescription drugs as well as over the counter medicine, that does not seem to be enough to protect people form adverse side effects and resulting serious injury.

Pharmaceutical manufacturers often pressure the FDA into approving their product quickly. As a consequence, the FDA exercises fast-track approvals. All too often the drugs that have been already approved or prescribed by doctors and pharmacists have been inadequately tested. In addition, insufficient labels or warnings contribute to serious health risks while many of these could have been prevented if more care was practiced.
