Serving Miami-Dade County, Broward County and Collier County Florida
Our prescription error lawyers have obtained a number of substantial settlements in Florida medication error lawsuits against major pharmaceutical chains. We possess the experience and resources to pursue liability claims against pharmacies.
The pharmacist may be liable for any damages caused by:
- Dispensing the wrong medication
- Giving the patient the wrong dosage
- Failing to identify harmful drug interactions
Medication errors are common. Most do not result in serious harm. However, an improper dose of certain drugs, or incompatible medications taken at the same time, can result in severe adverse reactions, leading to hospitalization, organ damage, chronic pain, permanent disability or even death.
Consult with an Experienced Attorney
The Kendall prescription error lawyers of Greenberg, Stone & Urbano can evaluate your claim if you believe your illness or injury was caused by a medication mistake. We have extensive experience in medical negligence and pharmacy malpractice cases. Our firm consults with specialists in pharmacology and other experts to verify the acute and long-term toxic effects of taking the wrong medicine or excessive dose. Some patients may have an immediate allergic reaction while others may take the medication for a long period before realizing any effects.
Save the bottle or package the prescription came in, even if the medication has already been used up. Save any receipts or directions that came with the prescription, and record any effects that you notice after taking the drug, or unusual symptoms you have experienced lately that may be related.
Compensation in Florida Medication Error Lawsuits
Greenberg, Stone & Urbano typically settles these cases with the pharmacy, pharmacist and their insurance companies. Our veteran trial lawyers are able to negotiate full compensation because we are prepared to go to court if necessary. We act promptly to obtain records from the prescribing physician and the pharmacy. We also pursue nursing home and hospital malpractice claims, as many prescription errors occur in those settings.
Compensation depends upon the severity and duration of the injury. Victims who suffer serious, lasting harm can collect damages for medical treatment and any future medical care required, lost wages and future earnings if the medication error prevents returning to work, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life. If the pharmacy error resulted in a death, our Kendall prescription error lawyers can file a wrongful death claim for loss of consortium of the loved one, in addition to lost earnings and actual expenses.
