For the Injured And For A Safer Iowa

Harmed By Dangerous Pharmaceutical Drugs?

Most prescription drugs on the market have resulted in vast and vital improvements in our health and the quality of our lives. Unfortunately, in the drive to push new drugs to market and realize profits, dangerous pharmaceutical drugs sometimes get released to the public as well.

Drug companies may cut corners and not adequately test new drugs for safety. They may fail to head warning signs or ignore their research and findings of dangerous side effects. As a result, patients are often prescribed or given drugs without knowing the harmful side effects or safer alternatives.

Consequently, the side effects can be devastating for unknowing patients and their loved ones. Combinations with other drugs may be deadly without proper testing. Existing medical conditions can react negatively to a new drug or medical device. Using street drugs with new medicines on the market will have unknown side effects that can also often be deadly.

The team at Galligan Law has extensive experience in dangerous drug litigation and the resources and knowledge necessary to get results in cases against powerful pharmaceutical drugmakers.

Taking On The Drug Industry From Des Moines

Due to the high litigation costs, complexity and contentiousness of pursuing lawsuits against drug manufacturers, single cases generally cannot be pursued by themselves.

Victims of dangerous drugs often must group their cases together with hundreds or thousands of others. By fighting together, victims can match the power and the unlimited leverage and resources of the pharmaceutical industry. Class actions against bad drugs on the market give people a way to fight together with a legal team. 

The attorneys at Galligan Law have developed close relationships and connections with law firms across the country. This allows them to collaborate with firms that are also representing victims of dangerous drugs. By pooling resources and knowledge, they can take on the unlimited resources and massive corporate law firms defending the pharmaceutical industry at any cost. 

In dangerous drug cases, collaboration helps ensure that you get the best chance at justice in your case. There is strength in having a large team fighting for a common goal. Our reputation for success has earned us the respect of judges and legal professionals statewide and nationwide. We have a vast referral network that serves injured Iowans well. Do not hesitate to ask for our help.

Do Not Stop Taking Medications Before Talking With Your Doctor

We put our clients’ and potential clients’ interests first in all defective drug case reviews, preparations and litigation. We always urge people concerned about drug side effects or drug recalls to consult with their doctors first – even more importantly than contacting a lawyer.
If the FDA or the manufacturer issues a recall notice for a medication you are taking, speak with your doctor. You should only stop taking prescribed medicines on the express instructions of your doctor. While a prescription drug may be dangerous, it may be more detrimental to stop taking it quickly. Stopping doses quickly and not replacing the drug with another may make existing medical conditions worsen.
