Dangerous Drugs/Pharmaceutical

In recent years, an increasing number of drugs brought to market have been recalled or taken off the shelf due to the threat of dangerous side effects. Recognizing the danger posed by some of these drugs, The Cartwright Law Firm, located in San Francisco, California, brought its first Vioxx case to court 2 years before any others were filed in the state of California. We’re also the first law firm to go to trial over dangers posed by Viagra. Unfortunately, there are a number of other drugs that have caused injury or death for those that have used them. Prepared with medical experts and knowledgeable in regard to the complicated issues involved in pharmaceutical cases, our personal injury attorneys know how to prepare cases involving dangerous drugs.
