As many of our readers know, we have started a personal injury blog called Birmingham Injury Blog which focuses on personal injury, wrongful death, and products liability. This is the type of work we did for many years before turning our attention to consumer issues. While the site is still under construction, we did want to point out to our readers three dangerous drugs which have been in the news and which we are investigating cases on to determine which ones should be pursued:

The diabetes drug Avandia has been reported to have serious health risks to patients who take this drug. As many of you know, one of our favorite blogs is the Consumerist and they have an excellent post today about what, and when, the FDA knew about the risk to patients using this drug. Here is an excerpt:

The maker of the drug, GlaxoSmithKline, separately told the FDA of the risk last August, but neither the drug maker nor the Agency warned the public.

The study was outed yesterday on the New England Journal of Medicine’s website. The editors of the journal and the study’s lead author both warned that the research methodology left the “findings open to interpretation.”
