Proton Pump Inhibitors, or PPIs, are commonly used to treat certain stomach and esophageal problems, such as acid reflux. You may know them by brand names such as Prilosec, Prevacid or Nexium, also known as the “Purple Pill.” They are found in medicine cabinets across the nation, in fact, 15 million people in the United States alone are taking these drugs. PPIs are not only part a multi-billion dollar industry, but they also may be the culprit for serious health complications.

Manufacturers have spent billions of dollars marketing these PPIs- the most profitable drug in history. The Ruth Law Team is dedicated to keeping the public informed about the risks associated with using these drugs. For more than 40 years, we have been fighting to hold pharmaceutical companies accountable for the safety of consumers.

Amy was the greatest attorney that I have had. She did her job and went behond. She did everything she told me she was going to do and then some. If I ever need another attorney, it will definitely be Amy. Thank you so much.

 
Kristopher G.
Clearwater

The Ruth Law team is an ethical, professional and very experienced law office full of people that care about their clients. They tell the unvarnished truth about what the law says and how it may be applied. There are so many law firms that advertise big payouts without being honest or work directly with insurance companies using formulas of the insurance company’s making. Research attorneys and their firms before being fooled by flashy advertisements. It was a relief to know we were represented by truthful staff who actually cared about long-term outcomes.
