Holding Negligent Parties Accountable for Their Harmful Mistakes

Our firm understands the anger and confusion you are experiencing, wondering how such a mistake was allowed to happen. Doctors and pharmacists undergo extensive academic and technical training. They are taught to properly prescribe and administer drugs, warn patients about serious or potentially fatal side effects, and ensure drug interactions are prevented. Failure to follow the standard of care can result in serious conditions such as the following:

  • Kidney failure
  • Birth defects
  • Increased risk of heart attack
  • Blood clots and stroke
  • Muscle damage
  • Heart valve failure

Possible errors include prescribing too much medication, not prescribing enough medication, not considering possible allergic reactions, not taking a patient's general health into account, and prescribing the entirely wrong medication.
