Protect Your Health And Well-Being With Help From Texas Medication Negligence Attorneys
Pharmaceutical injuries could be due to negligence on part of the producer of prescription medication, the pharmacy or pharmacist that fulfilled a prescription, or the physician that prescribed the medication.
Serious injury can result when medication is not handled with extreme care including consideration of its proper dosage and interaction with other medication or disorders. You may have a medical malpractice case if:
- You were prescribed the wrong medication
- You were prescribed the wrong dose or were given the wrong dose when in the hospital
- The medication you were given had preventable side effects when mixed with other medication you were taking
- The effects of medication were not monitored to ensure proper adjustments could be made
Some serious medication injuries are caused by simple misreading of handwriting or the use of improper abbreviations on prescriptions. It is crucial that you work with our experienced lawyers if you have suffered from a prescription error.
