Philadelphia Pharmaceutical Negligence Attorney

Pharmacist Errors, Defective Drugs & Side Effects

Pharmaceutical negligence deals with patient injuries and deaths caused by pharmacist errors, defective or dangerous prescription drugs, adverse drug reactions, and the wrong dose or type of medicine. This is one of the fastest-growing areas of medical malpractice. As new drugs are invented and prescribed, the potential for defects and errors increases as well.

At The Villari Firm, PLLC, we represent patients in Philadelphia and throughout the surrounding areas who have suffered harm as a result of any type of pharmaceutical negligence or malpractice. These cases are complicated, but we have personal knowledge related to pharmaceutical errors, and we involve experts to strengthen our clients’ cases as we seek maximum compensation from at-fault parties. We deliver unrelenting representation inside and outside the civil courtroom in these matters.

Examples of Pharmaceutical Malpractice

There are three primary categories under which pharmaceutical malpractice may fall. These share one common element: prescription drugs. Regulated by the government because they pose a certain level of danger due to abuse or misuse, these drugs can only be obtained with a valid medical prescription. When the companies or medical professionals that deal with prescription drugs act negligently or even break the law in an attempt to boost profits, they can cause serious harm.

The Villari Firm, PLLC takes on cases involving all three types of pharmaceutical malpractice:

  • Defective and dangerous drugs, which may include drugs that cause serious or even deadly side effects, are improperly marketed, insufficiently tested, or do not contain proper side effects warnings. Some of these have been recalled, while others are under investigation, and still others have yet to be exposed.
  • Improperly prescribed medication, which may include off-label uses for prescription medications, accidentally prescribing the wrong dose or wrong drug, misdiagnosing a medical condition and therefore prescribing an unnecessary or incorrect medication, or similar errors.
  • Improperly filled prescriptions, which includes errors or negligence on the part of the pharmacists who fill and dispense prescription drugs. This may include dispensing the wrong dose or wrong drug or failing to educate a patient on how to take the medicine.
