The manufacturers of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are being sued by patients who were diagnosed with certain types of kidney injuries.
Defective Drugs and Supplements
When pharmaceutical companies release dangerous and defective drugs into the marketplace, patients who are injured as a result may be able to take legal action. Typically, these lawsuits allege that a pharmaceutical company made a drug that was somehow defective – either in design, manufacturing or marketing. A drug suffers from a marketing defect if the company failed to properly warn patients or doctors about a certain side effect.
It’s important to note that most lawsuits involving pharmaceutical drugs aren’t class action lawsuits, but rather individual lawsuits filed by one person with the help of his or her attorney. (You can find out why drug lawsuits aren’t suited for class action litigation by reading this article.)
