Helping Medication Error Victims
The Florida Law Group: Aggressively Pursuing Justice
Thousands of patients die each year and hundreds of thousands suffer injuries because of prescription medications. Sadly, the real cause of many of these injuries is not usually recognized. Medication mistakes occur with as many as one in five hospital patients. Doctors, nurses, and pharmacists, and other medical providers are all guilty of making mistakes in administering these potent drugs, and it is important to hold them accountable when this happens.
When your condition is worsened after a medication has been administered to you, you should talk with our Tampa medical malpractice attorneys at The Florida Law Group who will fight for you. Our firm has the resources to investigate the matter to uncover what happened. If a medication error has resulted in serious injury, we can file a claim for compensation on your behalf and aggressively pursue a fair settlement.
Common Types of Medication Errors
With a little more care, most medication errors could be avoided. A doctor’s failure to take a few seconds more to check other medications already being administered to the patient, or to ensure the prescription is correct or a nurse’s failure to double check before administering a medication could prevent severe, even permanent injury.
Our skilled legal team is prepared to assist you with your claim for damages resulting from:
- Drug interactions
- Drug allergies
- Incorrect dose of medication
- Inaccurate patient records being kept
- Wrong medication administered
- Wrong medication prescribed
- Wrong medication dispensed
- Lack of explanation of potential side effects
- Other serious medication errors
