Justice for Victims of Medical Malpractice

St. Louis Pharmaceutical Malpractice Attorney

Pharmaceutical malpractice, also referred to as pharmaceutical liability, occurs when the ingestion of a prescription medication leads to the injury or wrongful death of the patient.

Pharmaceutical malpractice can occur in a variety of ways, but here are a few of the most common examples:

  • Failure to know about the side effects or health risks of a particular drug. There are cases in which a pharmaceutical company does not perform adequate testing of a new drug to discover potential side effects or health risks. This can lead to the injury or illness of people who take the drug once it is released to the marketplace.
  • Failure to disclose the potential side effects or health risks of a drug. Though all pharmaceutical drugs must be approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) before being made available to the public, there are times when a pharmaceutical company will fail to disclose the possible health risks of a particular drug, allowing it to be passed through the FDA approval process while still presenting a hazard to the public.
  • Mistakes or errors made in the manufacture of the drug.
  • Improper or incorrect dosage or incorrect medication is given by one's local pharmacy.
  • Doctor's failure to take into account the patient's current prescriptions when writing a new prescription, when this results in dangerous interactions between the drugs

If you have been victimized by pharmaceutical malpractice, then you may be entitled to financial compensation from the drug company, the doctor, or the pharmacist who is responsible for your injury.

Pharmacy & Prescription Errors in St. Louis

The instances of prescription drug error in pharmacies have increased dramatically in recent years, and will likely only continue to do so as aging baby boomers and others come to rely more on prescription medication. Of the nearly four billion prescriptions that are filled in pharmacies every year, millions of errors occur that cause harm, in some cases, even wrongful death.

These errors can occur for a variety of reasons, such as understaffing in the pharmacy, the emphasis of speed over customer safety, tying employee pay to volume, distractions, and doctor malpractice. If you have suffered injury or illness due to pharmacy error then you may be entitled to financial compensation from that pharmacy for the pain and trauma you have endured. By providing you with qualified legal representation in your case, a St. Louis personal injury lawyer may give you your best chance at obtaining that compensation.
