Lipitor, the popular cholesterol-lowering medication from Phizer, has been shown to increase the risk of developing diabetes in women who have been taking the drug. In early 2012, the FDA required Pfizer to update Lipitor’s label to include the increased risk of causing type 2 diabetes. Other manufacturers of cholesterol-lowering statins that worked in similar ways were also required to comply with the new guidelines. But for many, the damage had already been done.
The Cartwright Law Firm has developed significant experience dealing with drug company lawsuits due to damaging side effects from drugs that have been claimed as safe. Lipitor is yet another example of pharmaceutical firms rushing drugs to market without conducting longer-termed studies to make absolutely certain their products are safe for use.
In spite of advertising that claims safety and effectiveness, a number of drugs in recent years have caused significant injury or death. With a combination of experience, knowledge, and expert resources, we take on high-profile pharmaceutical companies and hold them accountable for dangerous drugs.
