Litigious society or bad drugs?

Over the past six years, more than 65,000 lawsuits have been filed against drugmakers, making the pharmaceutical industry by far the most sued industry. It is my guess that lawsuits against drugmakers will continue increasing given the number of drugs on the market and the number of consumers taking them.

We may be a little lawsuit happy in the states but these numbers are far too high to discount. If you are taking pharmaceutical drugs or considering taking pharmaceutical drugs, please do your due diligence and know the potential side effects.
