Dangerous Drugs & Injury Claims in Modesto

Understanding Pharmaceutical Litigation

Dangerous Drugs

In July of 2012, pharmaceutical industry giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) agreed to pay a $3 billion settlement after being prosecuted by the U.S. government. More than $1 billion out of the total was set aside as payment of a set of whistleblower lawsuits which provided the basis of a criminal investigation into GSK's illegal marketing of certain prescription drugs including the antidepressants Paxil and Wellbutrin. This massive settlement, the largest in the history of health care fraud litigation in the United States, was still only a drop in the bucket for GSK, a company which reported revenues of more than $40 billion in 2012.

Big Pharma is incredibly profitable, with the top five companies in the industry each bringing in revenues of $40 billion or more on an annual basis. This means the defendant in a product liability lawsuit involving a dangerous prescription drug will typically have vast resources at its disposal for contesting the claim.

If you are contemplating legal action against a major drug company, you need a Modesto personal injury lawyer who has a proven track record of success and who is prepared to take on the considerable challenges of such a case.
