Drugwatch.com advocates for people to make a stand against prescription drugs that have harmful side effects and medical devices that cause damage. We do this by providing accurate, comprehensive information about these commonly used drugs and devices and by answering questions raised by people who contact us.
Our mission is to help our users evaluate if they have a legal case because of life-changing side effects or complications that were caused by a device maker or a drug company. We use the legal team at The Peterson Firm to educate these users about their circumstances.

Drugwatch is sponsored by The Peterson Firm, a national law firm whose office is located in Washington, D.C. The firm specializes in mass mass torts and complex litigations where consumers were injured by the wrongdoings of large corporations.
Brian Wilson, who is licensed to practice law in Washington, D.C., and Florida, oversees the firm’s operations and has spent more than a decade leading clients through challenging legal matters.
The firm sponsors Drugwatch largely because of its commitment to helping those injured by pharmaceutical and medical products. Drugwatch shares the same goals. Drugwatch’s Patient Advocate team ensures that people with medical issues related to prescription drugs and medical devices have a place to turn for answers and for help.
All the services provided by Drugwatch and its Patient Advocates are free. There is no requirement for anyone to be a client of The Peterson Firm to receive our help.
Drugwatch.com is updated constantly with new information about research breakthroughs, clinical trials, recalls and warnings from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). By making you aware of the risks of certain medications and medical devices, we give you a better chance for quality of life and survival.
Our Patient Advocates are the forefront of our help team. They field calls and questions about all sorts of drugs and devices. They maintain a working knowledge about a number of drugs that are experiencing issues. They also know about other people who wrestle with the same health concerns that you may have. They help people understand the nature of their injuries and whether those have value as a legal case and if there are other avenues of financial assistance. They also answer questions about treatment options and specialists and insurance claims.
We want to make sure if you were harmed by a drug or device that you know you have recourse against the multi-billion-dollar companies that were responsible. If you or a loved one need help, we can show you how to navigate the maze of paperwork for filing a legal claim.
