Prescription Drug Injury Lawyers
Standing Up to Negligent Pharmaceutical Companies Nationwide
Based in Los Angeles, Baum Hedlund Aristei & Goldman has extensive experience in litigating drug injury, wrongful death and consumer class action cases against major pharmaceutical companies since the late 1980s – and our firm is fully committed to representing the victims of defective drugs.
We started handling SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) antidepressant drug injury cases in 1990 and we were appointed to the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in the early 1990s in the first SSRI-suicide litigation involving Prozac: The first SSRI approved by the FDA for marketing in the U.S. We were also the first law firm to file a class action against the makers of Paxil. Our firm also found the smoking gun internal study linking SSRIs to heart birth defects and documentation of company programs to ghostwrite medical journal articles for academic opinion leaders to give the appearance of “objective science” really meant to serve their marketing objectives to increase drug sales. We also testified before the FDA on several occasions about the harmful effects of antidepressants and were part of the team of people that helped bring about the black box warning for increased suicidality for children and young adults. For these reasons, we are known nationwide as a leading antidepressant litigation firm and have the longest track record of working on these cases.
Our firm’s drug product liability litigation department has handled thousands of individual prescription drug and consumer product injury or death cases against pharmaceutical defendants such as A.H. Robins Company, Alpha Therapeutic, Armour Pharmaceutical Co., Baxter Health Care Corp, Bayer Corp, Boehringer Ingelheim, Eli Lilly, GlaxoSmithKline, Merck, Pfizer, Sanofi, Takeda, and Wyeth.
Our litigation team is presently focusing on prescription drug cases like:
- Zantac cancer lawsuits
- Medication-induced violence
- Risperdal lawsuits for gynecomastia
- Gardasil HPV vaccine lawsuits
