Prescription Drug Lawsuits

The prescription drugs you receive and the over-the-counter medications you buy are supposed to help you, not hurt you. Yet some of the most commonly used medications pose serious health consequences to consumers.

Current Prescription Drug Injury Investigations and Lawsuits

  • Abilify Lawsuit – some patients who are treated with Abilify develop serious side effects including gambling, shopping, and eating addictions as well as severe sex addictions. These patients are demanding answers to their questions and are seeking justice for the significant losses they have experienced.
