People depend on prescriptions and over-the-counter drugs to treat sickness and injury on an everyday basis. People may rely on them to help enhance their quality of life. However, drug companies place drugs on the market without adequate research and monitoring trials, which can lead to inaccurate information provided to patients and health care providers about the severe risks and side effects that are linked to their drugs.

Catastrophic Personal Injury
As members of our communities, individuals and corporations are obligated to obey the law and abide by certain standards of care to insure the safety and well-being of others. When these obligations are breached and an injury results, the injured party may be entitled to compensation for physical and/or emotional injury, or for damage to property.
A catastrophic injury can necessitate a lifetime of medical care, or repeated reconstructive surgeries. Injuries that require significant medical treatment or long-term or lifetime permanent disfigurement, impairment or disability can be considered catastrophic personal injuries. Injuries this severe cause permanent disability, significant suffering, and substantially shorten an injured person's lifespan up to and including premature death of the victim.
