Medication Mistakes in Florida
Florida Medication Error Attorney
A medication mistake may stem from negligence on the part of one or more of three main parties: the hospital, the
doctor, or the
pharmacy. At Distasio Law Firm, we are experienced with
medication error cases throughout Florida involving any type of negligence or malpractice on the part of any party involved with prescribing or administering your medication. In consulting with an attorney at our firm, you can learn more about your rights and your options after a medication error injury, as well as what party may be held liable.
In conducting a thorough investigation of your case, we may find that the doctor prescribed the wrong medicine because he or she was not careful in diagnosing your condition. In this way, a misdiagnosis may lead to adverse side effects from the wrong medication. Another example of a common medication error may be a pharmacist who cannot clearly read a doctor’s handwriting and yet administers a prescription anyway. Additional medication mistakes may arise from situations in which a hospital does not properly organize medicines, or does not properly train or screen its employees. In any event, it will be necessary for your lawyer to work to prove that it was negligence on the part of one or more parties that led to the incident.
Consequences of Medication Mistakes
A single error or omission on the part of a doctor, pharmacist, nurse or any hospital employee may have disastrous consequences for a patient. The wrong medicine or the right medicine in the wrong dosage amount may cause any number of side effects that could lead to serious injury or even death. If you or someone you know has suffered as the result of a medication mistake on the part of any hospital, pharmacy or doctor, please consider consulting a
Florida medication error attorney as soon as possible to learn more about your rights and your options moving forward from this point.
