Pharmaceutical Injury Claims
The news has been full of information about dangerous pharmaceutical medications in recent years. Some of these drugs have been pulled off the market after class action product liability lawsuits have been filed, while others remain readily available. Pharmaceutical companies have proven they are willing to rush products onto the market before sufficient testing has been done to determine their dangerous side effects. But even drugs that have been considered relatively safe can have disastrous consequences.
When you take a prescribed medication, you rely on its ability to help treat your specific medical problem. Many drugs do just that, and have been safely used with reasonable side effects for years. Sadly, with an ever growing market for prescription medications, new drugs – and even some that have been in long use – do much more harm than good.

Why Hire an Attorney?
When you are injured by a defective or dangerous drug, you are up against one of the most powerful industries in the world. Pharmaceutical companies are large and retain teams of attorneys in addition to aggressive insurance agencies. Their stake is in protecting their profits and their name. The methods they use to keep you from gaining compensation can be coercive, and even illegal.
The experienced attorneys at Wapner Newman have years of experience dealing with these companies, their attorneys, and their insurance providers. Our drug injury lawyers in Philadelphia are not afraid to hold negligent pharmaceutical companies accountable for their dangerous products, and will not back down until we have secured a settlement that addresses all of your damages.
Our verdicts and settlements speak for themselves. In both class action and private lawsuits, our personal injury lawyers have been able to help victims of dangerous drugs obtain large settlements that help to cover the costs of medical expenses, lost wages, emotional distress, and physical pain and suffering.
Pharmaceutical companies can be ruthless when trying to disprove your claim. You deserve an aggressive, experienced product liability attorney in New Jersey on your side who will fight for your rights and help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
