Pharmaceutical Drugs and Medical Devices
Nothing is more important than your and your loved ones' health
There is nothing more important than your health. If you have been the victim of wrongful or improper practices by drug manufacturers and the makers of medical devices, you deserve to be fully compensated for all of your losses. RPWB is nationally recognized for representing individuals who have been harmed by side effects from both prescription and non-prescription drugs and medical devices.
RPWB pharmaceutical drug and medical devices attorneys currently serve or have served on various National Plaintiffs’ Steering committees for consolidated litigations involving the following pharmaceutical drugs:
