Prescription drugs are meant to help patients recover from or cope with encumbering medical conditions. Unfortunately, not all prescription drugs are made or distributed with patients’ best interests in mind; many cause undue harm, injury, and even death.

At Napoli Shkolnik, PLLC our attorneys can help you to determine who is liable for your injuries, and file a claim to recover damages for economic and noneconomic losses.
