ABOUT PERISCOPE GROUP

We Are Advocates For The Injured

TOGETHER WE MUST PUSH FOR CHANGE

Welcome to Periscope Group. You’re here looking for answers and you’ve come to the right place.

Our purpose is simple: we provide support, education and if needed, we can connect you to legal counsel for those that have been injured by an unsafe drug or medical device. We’ve worked with too many patients over the past three decades whose lives have been turned upside down as a result of an unsafe drug or device. We’ve witnessed countless people who have experienced extreme pain and suffering, are unable to work, and have had to watch medical bills pile up while trying to get their lives back on track. It’s frightening and there are very few resources to turn to.

We know that as an individual, standing up to big pharmaceutical companies that gamble with people’s lives and livelihoods is scary; it seems like an impossible battle to win. However, when we join together, we have power. We have helped hundreds of thousands of consumers understand what caused their injuries and facilitated their path to financial settlement.

We believe that the situation our clients find themselves in is a symptom of a bigger problem – we lack proper checks and balances on the drugs and devices available for treatment. Because of this sad reality, we work with not only the injured and their families, but also advocacy groups and lobbyists to fight for patient rights and push for change. We passionately believe the solution to fixing this problem needs to be a collaborative effort among patients, their families, advocates, and legal counsel.

And let’s address “legal counsel” and the view that these types of cases are “frivolous”, “without merit”, and a “way for greedy lawyers to make a lot of money”.

Fact is that I have worked with lawyers for three decades, and like any industry, there are some really great lawyers that are in it for the right reasons – and some that are in it for the wrong reasons and should not be in this space. Welcome also to the Financial Sector, Politics, Journalism and the list goes on. Unfortunately it’s not just the legal space.

But without the qualified lawyers that specialize in defective drugs and products that help consumers, there would be no one fighting for them at all. So even if the lawyers get a fee at the end, they don’t get paid unless they get a successful settlement of verdict for you, which is why these cases are contingency based only.

And while lawyers may not always win a popularity contest, they also aren’t killing anyone for profit either. So at the end of the day, drug and defective device companies are running amok on our health for profit, even if it means disabling and killing countless consumers a year, because money is apparently more important than safety or our health.

Please focus on THAT being the problem – not the lawyers.

There is nothing wrong with making money. Being profitable is a good thing, but when it is more important than people’s lives and their families, make no mistake, THAT is the problem – AND there is nothing frivolous about a family’s or individuals pain and suffering when it does hit close to home.

I have seen both sides of this for 30 years and as frustrating as the system can be, the worst part is we live in these United States and there are health crimes happening every day in this country. It appears that the biggest white-collar pushers of drugs are our own publicly traded companies and seem to be beyond the law. There is no deterrent for them like jail time, or having their golden parachutes taken away, nor do their boards of directors seem to be stepping in, as they should. It’s a “trickle down” systematic problem.

So no matter how you feel about lawyers, when they are on your side and you need them, they are an essential part of the legal ecosystem and we have been lucky enough to cultivate a group of really great ones that are in this for the right reasons, financial model or not.

The pain is real. The loss of income, job, health care, love and living is real. So lets all focus on the end game here.

You know the old saying, “Don’t hate the players, hate the game”.  We all hate the game and that consumers are so exposed, but it takes so much money, time and resources for people to fight back at a time when people are sick and need help. Consumers are not road kill but we’re being treated as such. That is the problem right now and we CAN’T address health care in this country until we address the FDA, how drugs are put on the market, vetted and mass marketed as well as why there are no consequences except monetary settlements which the drug companies control and dole out as they please.

We must all ask for help when we need to and shouldn’t be penalized by our doctors, employers, or drug and device companies when that time comes.

That’s why Together we must push for change before things like Opioid Addiction, Bad Products like the Transvaginal Mesh which was put in millions of women, and SO many other areas we talk about on this site before even more people are harmed.

We must demand better warnings and drug and device updates that clearly and thoroughly protect the consumer. We must ensure rigorous drug and device testing. Most of all, we must advocate for meaningful settlements so that these companies know we mean business. The legal system, FDA and pharmaceutical companies have created a complex maze that is almost impossible for the consumer to navigate… but our team of experts has the knowledge, compassion and determination to partner with you on this journey.

If you need help, you just don’t know how to begin, or have basic questions, please email us at info@periscopegroup.com or call us at toll free 800-511-3838. I look forward to hearing from you.

Abilify: Is This Antipsychotic a Crapshoot? (Press Release)

DANVILLE, Calif., May 25, 2018A drug that causes people to gamble? This has to be a scapegoat for bad behavior or another crazy lawsuit like McDonald’s and the too hot coffee. While this sounds unbelievable, massive numbers of people have reported having compulsive behavior after taking the antipsychotic drug Abilify (aripiprazole). Even the underfunded FDA has published a safety report on May 3, 2016 warning that “compulsive or uncontrollable urges to gamble… have been reported with the use of the antipsychotic drug aripiprazole.”

Invokana: The Diabetic Drug That Costs a Limb (Press Release)

DANVILLE, Calif., May 25, 2018 – 29 million people have type 2 diabetes in the U.S. making it big business for pharmaceutical companies. Released in 2013, Invokana was heralded as a new lifestyle drug and the “darling” of diabetic medications. It was even said to help patients lose weight and reduce high blood pressure! However, this miracle pill wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. Kaiser Permanente in California urges its doctors not to prescribe this drug and to closely monitor those patients who are on it. Dr. Steven Nissen, Chairman of Cardiovascular Medicine at the Cleveland Clinic, states that he is “uncomfortable prescribing [Invokana] in view of the amputation risk.”  He also calculated that one out of every 69 patients who takes canagliflozin for five years will have a drug-related amputation. Clearly this drug should be taken off the market since toe, foot, and partial leg amputations are twice as likely on Invokana as compared to other diabetic medications.

Minimize Health Risks from Glyphosate Exposure in Your Food

Monsanto’s Roundup and its key ingredient glyphosate has to be one of the most controversial topics on the Internet. More than 1.8 million tons has been sprayed on crops and other vegetation in the U.S. since 1974 and two-thirds of that has been sprayed just in the last 10 years. (In fact, in 2014 farmers sprayed 1.65 billion pounds of glyphosate. That’s enough to cover every acre of cropland in the world with about a half pound of this chemical.) Many studies and international government agencies have attributed Roundup as carcinogenic – it can potentially cause cancer – and recommend that this weedkiller be avoided.
