Drug Companies: It’s Just Business to Them

by Staff Blogger | October 24th, 2016

Consider this scenario. You are a scientist who discovers a formula for relieving the symptoms of a painful but not life-threatening condition such as heartburn. You develop the medication, run safety trials, and discover that the drug is extremely effective in treating heartburn symptoms in almost every patient who takes it. However, there’s a 25% chance that users will be at a greater risk of developing cancer. Although the drug will make you billions of dollars, it could lead to the illness and/or death of thousands of people. Do you release it?

The pharmaceutical industry has to make that decision all the time, and unfortunately for us, many times they choose to release it anyway. Why? Because they know that they’ll make more money from the sell of the drug than they’ll be forced to pay out in lawsuits. As despicable as that might sound, it’s just business to them.

At Ponce Law, we’re on a mission to change the way the pharmaceutical industry operates, and we’re doing it one drug injury case at a time. In our opinion, the only way to change the way they do business is to hit them where it really hurts—their bottom line. That’s why we fight for maximum compensation for our drug injury clients, no matter how long it takes.
