Benicar is the brand name of the prescription drug olmesartan, which is used to treat high blood pressure as well as heart failure and kidney disease. Benicar can also cause death or serious injury to an unborn baby when taken during the last six months of pregnancy. In 2013, the FDA issued a new warning label about the risk of serious gastrointestinal side effects (including severe diarrhea and stomach pain) associated with the use of Benicar. If you or your child suffered adverse effects from using this medication, an experienced attorney can help you recover damages.

- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located near you?
