Proton Pump Inhibitors

Pittsburgh Proton Pump Inhibitor Lawsuits

Drug companies are often utterly shameless in putting people at risk with products that can cause terrible harm. Yet another example of this inexcusable corporate conduct involves medications known as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs).

When used over a long period of time, PPIs can increase the risk of developing chronic kidney disease or acute kidney injuries including acute intestinal nephritis.

At Robert Peirce & Associates, we have a proven track record of holding drug companies accountable for excessively dangerous prescription drugs. If you have been injured by PPIs, give our Pittsburgh prescription drug lawyers a call to discuss your specific situation in a confidential consultation.

Were You Harmed by Nexium or Prilosec?

Popular medications Nexium and Prilosec, which are proton pump inhibitor medications (PPIs), can help ease symptoms form too much gastric acid.

Of course, drug companies often contend that their offerings aren't all that dangerous when used as intended. In the case of PPIs, however, there is lots of research evidence that they cause serious problems.

For example, a recent study reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association showed that long-term use of PPIs can increase the risk of developing chronic kidney disease.

Our lawyers know how to marshal the latest research and particular facts to bring strong compensation claims for people injured by prescription drugs.
