Neurontin Lawsuit

For years, Pfizer deliberately and misleadingly promoted Neurontin for a number of uses for which it had not been approved (called off-label usage). Marketing a drug for unapproved uses is certainly illegal - challenging FDA regulatory and statutory procedures. By doing so, Pfizer knowingly put patients at risk. Above all, the company was well aware that Neurontin showed no merit for the uses it encouraged. The company is currently involved in innumerous product liability and personal injury lawsuits related to Neurontin.

Neurontin lawsuit refers to legal action taken against Pfizer to recover the cost of medication, any medical costs stemming from the damage resulted by using the drug, pain and suffering, and in some cases, punitive damages too. As Pfizer was well aware of the fact that Neurontin was not only ineffective but also potentially hazardous in case of unapproved use, the company can be held liable for any sufferings caused by their blatant propaganda.

You can file a lawsuit if you or a loved one has suffered after using Neurontin that was prescribed for a non-FDA approved use.
