- Senate Report Brings Scrutiny to Avandia and FDA
Senate Report Details Background Issues Regarding Avandia Side Effects
In response to the growing level of concern and number of reports regarding Avandia side effects, the Senate made the decision to formulate and issue a report that analyzed the issue and history of this problematic diabetes medication. Those charged with completing the report reviewed more than 25,000 documents detailing the problems associated with Avandia, and among many conclusions, the following appear to be the most noteworthy:
- Avandia could potentially be responsible for as many as 83,000 heart attacks by those who used the medication.
- GlaxoSmithKline took steps to discredit reports of Avandia side effects and even intimidated doctors who saw the use of Avandia as potentially problematic.
- The FDA overlooked data that should have prompted immediate and strong action.
Every one of these conclusions is a serious indictment of GlaxoSmithKline and the FDA, but unfortunately this report is not legally binding in any manner that could directly lead to action.

Great company and awesome service. Thanks Caroline fabos. Kudos to all.
The lawyers here are of top quality. Especially Trey Dayes, who was always respectful and hard-working.
I would like to thank Vanessa Rodriguez for helping me with my case because I was in total shock about the accident. She had listened to all my concerns and had answered every question I had . She was great !!!
Juan Roque has been integral with my legal needs. Communication has been easy. He conveys information I can easily understand without a lot of "Legal Fluff" jargon. I will certainly do business with Phillips Legal team again and refer them to my friends and family.
A friend of mine recommended Phillips Law and I’m so grateful, because they were so wonderful, so down to earth, so professional. I felt like they were family.
I have been with Phillips Law Group for a little over a year and I have learned what teamwork and family in a workplace looks like. There is always someone around to lend a helping hand, which is something I appreciate and cherish. I feel a sense of joy coming to work every day because of my co-workers as well as being able to help people in what can be a scary and stressful situation. I currently work as a Litigation Legal Assistant with an amazing team. When I started here, I was not very knowledgeable in personal injury. I was lucky to have been placed with an amazing team who was willing to take time to teach and pass on some great skills that have been a huge aid in helping me be successful in my position. I would recommend working here at Phillips Law Group, because they care about their employees and there is so much room for growth.
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value As someone who is familiar with the inner workings of the auto insurance industry I can whole heartedly endorse Steven J. Jones and Phillips law group as someone I would want on my side should litigation take place. They handled my case professionally, honestly, and with satisfactory results which I would not have expected without enlisting their help.
Sophia H is very helpful.
