We hold pharmaceutical companies responsible for drug-induced illness.

Each year, prescription drugs that patients believe to be safe cause severe illness or even death. Some are advertised as “wonder drugs”, while potentially-deadly risks are downplayed. Pharmaceutical companies must be made accountable. We are a leader in drug injury litigation and we have the in-depth experience and steadfast commitment to see every claim through until justice is done. Find out why Waters Kraus Paul & Siegel is the right firm for you.

Drug Injury

Justice for prescription drug injury.

A visit to your local drug store or supermarket reveals dozens of readily available remedies. Flip on the TV and you are inundated with pharmaceutical ads for prescription drugs that treat everything that ails you and more.

In a rush to bring new drugs to market, the pharmaceutical industry often exerts more effort focused on profits than on consumer safety. Frequently, new drugs are not properly vetted. In other instances, drug manufacturers downplay the risks and side effects of certain medications, such as opioids and opiates. Oversight by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is not always sufficient to prevent a dangerous drug from causing life-threatening injuries and illness.

If you or a loved one have been injured by a drug that you have taken, we can help you hold the pharmaceutical companies responsible. The lawyers at Waters Kraus Paul & Siegel understand the issues at hand, the companies involved, and we have successfully tried cases across the country.

We have represented families with children suffering from birth defects linked to popular prescription antidepressants, and children who have endured life-threatening skin diseases resulting from antibiotics and NSAIDs.
