Venango County Pharmaceutical Attorney

Venango County pharmaceutical cases attorneys represent patients who have been injured by drug complications. Pennsylvania has a drug problem and so does the rest of the country, and instead of getting better, it seems that people are increasingly suffering injuries and sometimes death caused by dangerous drugs. Financial gains are often put ahead of patient safety when it comes to pharmaceuticals and it is time to hold people and companies accountable for these practices.

Every day patients sustain pharmaceutical injuries caused by drug defects and negligent prescription and medication practices. When it comes to pharmaceutical injuries, liable parties may include drug makers, prescribing physicians, and pharmacists. Any one or a combination of these parties may be responsible for a patient’s drug injuries.

Drug maker liability

Drug manufacturers are responsible for producing drugs and placing them on the market for use in the medical community. Common drug maker liability results from the following types of practices:

  • Releasing a drug before it has been properly studied and tested for safety and effectiveness.
  • Making claims and promises about the drug’s safety and effectiveness that are inaccurate and unfounded.
  • Failing to warn of the drug’s dangerous side effects and interactions with other medications.

Prescribing physician liability

Physicians who prescribe drugs that cause injuries to patients may be liable for the following negligent practices:

  • Failing to review a patient’s medical history prior to prescribing medication resulting in injuries to the patient because the drug is not appropriate for him or her.
  • Failing to properly inform the patient of the risks associate with the drugs including dangerous complications and side effects before prescribing the drug.
  • Prescribing an incorrect drug dosage or strength that harms the patient.
  • Writing a prescription for the wrong medication that causes harm to the patient.
  • Prescribing a drug without taking appropriate care to study the drug and understand the totality of its risks and dangers.

Pharmacy liability

Pharmacists may also be liable for dangerous drug injuries in some cases due to the following:

  • Filling a prescription with the wrong strength medication.
  • Compounding medications and dangerous drugs.
  • Filling a prescription with an incorrect dosage.
  • Filling a prescription with the incorrect medication.
  • Distributing prescription medication without a legitimate prescription.

Drug complications

Pharmaceutical negligence may lead to serious patient injuries such as addiction, heart attack, stroke, organ damage or dysfunction, cancer, blood pressure problems, depression, suicidal thoughts, nerve damage, and sexual dysfunction. These injuries may lead to extensive necessary medical care, lifelong complications, and sometimes death. Pharmaceuticals can be very risky, especially when they are produced, distributed, and prescribed in a negligent manner.
