Florida Pharmacy Negligence Attorneys
There is no room for error when a person’s medications and healthcare are concerned. Pharmacy errors can lead to extremely devastating health consequences for victims such as sickness, permanent disabilities, and even death. Current statistics on pharmacy malpractice say that approximately 3% of all hospital admissions are related to problems with medication errors and that these errors can extend a patient’s hospital stay by 8-12 days. Almost 4 billion prescriptions are filled every year in the United States, and almost one-third of these prescriptions are filled at a CVS pharmacy or Walgreens.
Some of the most common types of pharmacy negligence in our country today include:
- Dispensing the wrong medicine or wrong dosage
- Confusing drugs that look alike
- Miscommunication between doctors and pharmacies
- Failure to identify drug allergies
If you or a loved one has been harmed by pharmacy negligence, we at The Florida Law Group can help you make this right for you. We can guide you through the claims-filing process so that you may obtain compensation for any costs associated with your injury or medical condition.
Why File an Injury Claim?
Prescription drugs must be properly dispensed by pharmacies and when this does not happen, victims have the right to take legal action to seek any compensation they may be entitled to as a wrongfully injured victim. We can present an injury claim against the negligent pharmacy to hold them financial accountable for their professional oversight.
Our firm may be able to obtain compensation for:
- Hospital and medical bills
- Ambulance and other emergency transportation expenses
- Lost wages
- Loss of future income earning capability
- Psychological anguish
- Pain and suffering
