Benicar Site Carries Tons of Info, but Appears to Omit Sprue-Like Enteropathy Parsippany, NJ: Credit Daiichi Sankyo for telling it like it is - at least as far as any pharmaceutical company is prepared to go. Side effects are listed right on the main landing page at without having to navigate through an endless series of links to locate information. Even the handsome senior in a wet suit shown as an illustration is admitted to being a model, and not necessarily a patient or health care professional.

Often when a reader is confronted with a legal issue or concern, it is a time of confusion and emotional distress. Between possible physical injuries, medical bills and emotional stress, the legal process—and just finding legal information or legal help—can be overwhelming. We understand that.

Finding a personal injury lawyer or joining a class action lawsuit as a lead plaintiff can be daunting—even for those who've worked with a lawyer previously for personal matters—such as to create a will, file for divorce or establish power of attorney.

One of the most challenging legal issues that a reader can face is a harmful drug case. Sometimes there has been a drug recall. More often, harmful drug side effects arise without warning—and sometimes it takes quite some time before a diagnosis is made to connect the harmful drug to the negative side effects. As a patient, filing a medical lawsuit or even contacting a medical malpractice attorney, defective medical device lawyer or harmful drug attorney is often the last thing on a harmful drug victim's mind. Medical legal issues often have statutes of limitations for filing medical lawsuits and they can also require a fair amount of documentation—all of which can be overwhelming for a victim. That's why it is often not only easier, but also recommended, to have the details of any medical legal issues reviewed by a lawyer who specializes in medical lawsuits. At, we provide readers with a convenient, trusted and free way to have their medical legal issues reviewed by a lawyer.
