Defining Pharmaceutical Litigation
Pharmaceutical litigation is an area of law that deals with dangerous or wrongly prescribed drugs. Prescription or over-the-counter drugs can be extremely dangerous, especially if they are inadequately tested, improperly marketed, or unnecessarily prescribed by a doctor. There are several different things that can go wrong with these drugs, and if someone is seriously harmed due to a drug error, pharmaceutical litigation attorneys step in to fight for justice and compensation on behalf of the victim.
