Drug Recall Lawyer Background
Fighting for the injured has a been a lifetime goal for Christopher. A growing culture of profits over people has led to the introduction of too many dangerous drugs and defective medical devices into our lives. Growing government debt and the separation of wealth has allowed for the unchecked corporate abuse of power at the expense of the average citizen. Everyone can relate to the experience of being scared to turn a claim into your insurance company for fear of increased premiums or denial of coverage. This atmosphere of fear occurs while these same companies enjoy record profits year after year.
An injury sustained by an unknowing victim at the hands of a company trying to place profits ahead of safety is offensive. It violates our sense of moral conduct and those individuals should be held accountable for their actions. As a personal injury lawyer, we take great pride in providing an avenue for the average citizen to stand up to the billion dollar corporations. If the settlement of a case cannot be achieved without a trial, our jury trial system provides an amazing opportunity for community involvement. Cases are commonly tried in the area where the injury occurs, allowing the local community to voice their opinions on what conduct will and will not be allowed.
It is often the case that following a medical injury or wrongful death, people are simply too devestated to take legal action. This lack of action benefits large insurance companies who caused the problem in the first place. Taking legal action provides reimbursement for the harms and losses associated with an injury, as well as a mechanism to correct the wrongful conduct from happening again. Anyone wanting to know more about the personal injury process in the United States is encouraged to watch the documentary Hot Coffee. I am willing to bet you know less than you think about the famous McDonald’s Hot Coffee case. The movie also highlights the outrageous situations which occur when we legislate caps on damages and binding arbitration clauses in contracts.
The large drug and medical device companies perform internal cost benefit analysis’ that are primarily concerned only with money. For instance, a large pharmaceutical company may be trying to decide if they should introduce a new drug to the market when their internal testing shows it will harm a large group of people. However, if the company will make 5 billion dollars from the drug and it will only cost them 2 billion in lawsuits from injuring and killing innocent parties, all too often they give the project the green light. They then submit false and altered testing to the FDA and attempt to rush approval. Consumers are then forced to make decisions about the product without all of the information.
Consumers have the right to make informed and educated decisions about a drug or medical device before it is put into their bodies. We work to ensure these negligent companies are held accountable for their injuries after they occur, and we fight to make sure future patients have all the information available to them before they make their decisions. We take a great deal of pride standing up to these large corporations on behalf of the community.

Following an injury, it is best to speak to an injury lawyer before speaking to an insurance company or signing anything. There are limited time frames in which you are allowed to file a claim, however, as long as you are within your available time frame, you will not hurt your case by refusing to provide an insurance company a recorded statement or signing legal documents at their request. Signing documents you do not understand can prevent you from being able to bring a case for your loss. A bad drug lawyer will be able to review all of your documents to ensure your case is protected.
