Pharmaceutical Companies Expert Witnesses

Pharmaceutical companies expert witnesses may consult on issues involving pharmaceutical medicine, drug prescriptions, and the pharmaceutical industry. In the news, plaintiff Laura A. Plumlee is suing Pfizer Inc. for consumer fraud after taking the prescription antidepressant Zoloft for three years. Plumlee and her attorney argue that Pfizer did not make known studies showing the drug is as useful as a placebo in the treatment of depression but instead advertized the drug as very effective. In her San Jose, CA, lawsuit, Plumlee is asking for patients to be reimbursed for the cost of the medication.
