California Dangerous Drug Attorneys
Injured by a Defective Pharmaceutical Drug?
Picture this for a moment: A huge pharmaceutical corporation releases a brand new, alleged cure-all medicine to the public for consumption. Mere weeks later, it is discovered that many consumers of the new drug are suffering from side effects that were not disclosed prior to the product’s release.
The victims who are suffering from the undisclosed side effects take the pharmaceutical company to court and end up either losing, or winning meager amounts in settlement because they cannot afford legal representation that rivals the corporation’s. You’ve probably seen this one before.
Our California personal injury lawyers at Frantz Law Group have seen this scenario happen to helpless victims far too many times. Fortunately for you, we have the manpower, resources, and network of experts that will allow us to effectively fight the big pharmaceutical corporations on your behalf.

You Can Help Stop the Cycle
Pharmaceutical companies are able to get away with this kind of criminal-like activity on a consistent basis because these cases end in settlement far more often than they do in verdicts.
Plaintiffs suffering from the dangerous drugs often take settlement offers because they need the compensation to pay for medical bills, lost wages, rehabilitation, and so on. The big pharmaceutical companies are more than happy to pay for a settlement because it keeps their case out of the news and as long as profits outweigh settlement fees, they simply consider it “the cost of doing business.”
Here are several recent pharmaceutical settlements:
- GlaxoSmithKline: $3 billion in 2012
- Pfizer: $2.3 billion in 2009
- Johnson & Johnson: $2.2 billion in 2013
- Abbott Laboratories: $1.5 billion in 2012
