Pharmaceutical drugs and medical devices is a multi-billion dollar industry. All too often, profits are put ahead of product safety and pharmaceutical sell and promote products that have not been adequately tested or without adequately disclosing the risks associated with use of the product.
Patients and their treating physicians and health care providers rely on the information provided by pharmaceutical companies regarding the risks associated with use of a particular drug or medical device. Where those risks are not disclosed, the results to patients can be devastating – patients can experience serious health consequences that could have been avoided if only the real risks of using the pharmaceutical drug or medical device had been disclosed.
Siskinds was the first firm in Canada to certify and settle a pharmaceutical class action, and continues to be a leader in Canada in this field.
