Pharmacy expert witnesses are needed for litigation involving pharmacies as the pharmaceutical industry is a vast and multifaceted field made up of several departments and forms of study. Pharmacy consulting may be required for lawsuits involving pharmaceuticals in relation to economics, retail, toxicology, pharmacology and drug regulation, chemistry, risk management, healthcare insurance, physiological science, pediatric pharmacology, and other important aspects of the development, manufacturing, and marketing procedures taking place within the field.
Pharmacy expert witnesses, who are usually pharmacists, may be asked to provide an expert opinion regarding such areas as pharmacy operations, prescriptions, drug policies, pricing strategy, managed care, or healthcare fraud, as each may become the subject of potential litigation. Pharmacy involving pediatrics also works as its own area of focus, whether it involves substance abuse, infectious diseases, seizures, epilepsy, or other problems related to toxicology and/or antibiotics. Pediatric critical care, for instance, must be treated with the necessary pharmacotherapy as required by each particular situation, as the potential for medical malpractice may result in various health issues, as well as wrongful death, and grounds for possible litigation.
Pharmacy expert witnesses may also be experienced with medication side effects, medication errors, and medical staff management. Federal regulations regarding drug stores/pharmacies must be properly enforced, as violations may lead to problems with prescriptions and other medical issues.
