We are a consumer-based society and as such we place great value on feeling that the products we purchase are safe to use. Especially when it comes to medications that are meant to make us better, not worse. Unfortunately, the public occasionally falls victim to faulty, substandard or unsafe medications. In such situations, an unsafe medications attorney with experience in the area of Products Liability Law may be your best ally for seeking investigation and compensation for such damage.

The Ruth Law Team has been instrumental in revealing the danger of certain unsafe drugs and products contributing to the recall of such items and financial compensation for our clients for more than 40 years. If you fear that you might be the victim of an unsafe medication, speak with one of our knowledgable attorneys to help determine if you have a case what steps you should take next.
