Florida Pharmacy Negligence Attorneys
When a doctor prescribes a medication, there is a lot more to consider than whether the medication will treat the symptoms. Doctors must consider what other medications a patient is taking, if there is a potential for cross-reaction with the new drug, any known drug allergies the patient may have, appropriate dosage and many other factors.
Failure to take any of these factors into account can result in extremely serious health problems or even the death of the patient. If you or a loved one has suffered in any way as a result of a medication error, it is important that you seek the advice of a qualified lawyer immediately. The attorneys at the law firm of Babbitt, Johnson, Osborne & Le Clainche hold negligent medical professionals accountable for the harm they cause.
We obtained a $6 million award for our client, an alcoholic, who suffered brain damage when she went into a seizure as a result of the d.t.'s (delirium tremens). She was forced to become sober "cold turkey" instead of being given Valium, which would have avoided the seizure.
These cases can be extremely complex because there are so many different situations that can come into play. Beyond the doctors who prescribe the medication, the medical personnel who administer it and the pharmacists who fill the prescriptions can also share in the liability. In addition, it is not only drugs that are prescribed that can create problems. The failure to prescribe a medication can also constitute grounds for a claim.
