We understand that most individuals will take a prescription medication at some point during their lifetime. That’s why our in-house team members routinely review the favorable decisions issued by the courts. Sometimes, the problem with a pharmaceutical product simply lies in the lack of research during the development process. In such cases, serious side effects or complications from taking a drug may start to appear.
