Pharmaceutical a mistakes are responsible for hundreds of thousands of injuries and fatalities every year in the United States. In fact, only heart disease and cancer kill more Americans than preventable medical errors. According to the Journal of Patient Safety, approximately 440,000 people die from preventable medical mistakes in hospitals every year.
Prescription drug injuries can be just as deadly. Although we’d like to think that every prescription and over-the-counter drug on American shelves is safe, this is not always the case. This is especially true with new-to-market drugs in their first few months or years of release. Dangerous side effects that didn’t present in pre-market testing begin to turn up in patients, occasionally with catastrophic results. Prescription drug companies can make profits in the millions and billions of dollars with the release of drugs that offer better treatment options than their predecessors. The excitement surrounding new drug releases and the anticipation of increased profits may lead to insufficient testing and early release. Unfortunately, this often comes at the expense of patient health and safety.

What our clients are
I would like to say the Kirk Law Firm went above and beyond their duties as my attorney. I searched long and hard to find an attorney to take my case. After being turned down by 4 of the larger Law Firms in the Dallas/Ft Worth area I contacted the Kirk Law Firm and they were meeting with me the following morning. They did a fantastic job representing me and got me a larger settlement than I had ever dreamed of. They are a great group of Attorneys.
I have been very pleased with the law services of Dana Kirk. I highly recommend the professional services of KIRK LAW FIRM, PLLC.
I was represented by the kirk lawfirm, a couple of year ago. I was injured on the job, back in February 2017. Which caused me head trauma and 2 surgeries for torn rotator cuff, which wasn't successful. I was worried about, what my future would be like. Being in my 60,s. I am married and just adopted my grandkids. I was looking for a lawyer and was fortunate to have stumbled upon, Dana Kirk and his lawfirm. I and my family were treated with compassion and respect. From his personal secretary to his associates all were very professional and knowledgeable about injury law. They negotiated a settlement for me, which has made me able to take care of my family. I highly recommend them and I'll always think of them as friends, who gave me my life back.
