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,
