Proton Pump Inhibitors

Trust Our Birmingham Defective Medical Device Attorneys with Your Case

Proton pump inhibitors, or PPIs, are frequently used to control the production of gastric acid. However, in recent studies, PPIs have been shown to increase the risk of kidney problems, including chronic kidney disease and organ failure, with regular use. Certain studies have linked PPIs with decreased cognitive function as well, especially in women over the age of 75.

If you or a loved one suffered harm as a result of taking PPIs, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering, and other associated losses. At Hare Wynn, our skilled defective and dangerous medical device attorneys have decades of collective experience handling all types of faulty medical device cases, including those that led to wrongful death. Our award-winning team is prepared to assist you throughout the entire process, offering compassionate guidance, sound legal counsel, and aggressive representation every step of the way.

If you believe that you may have a case for a proton pump inhibitor lawsuit, get in touch with us today by calling (855) 997-9319. We offer free initial case evaluations.
