Miami Pharmaceutical Error Lawyers
Dedicated Representation in All Types of Pharmacy Negligence Claims
Doctors prescribe a large number of medications every year to treat a range of illnesses and conditions, prevent pregnancy and diseases, and keep their patients healthy. However, when pharmacies make mistakes, the medications meant to improve the health of these patients can, instead, have serious and sometimes deadly consequences.
At Greenberg, Stone & Urbano, we represent clients who have been affected by pharmaceutical errors, ranging from incorrect dosages to improper instructions to wrong prescriptions. Our Miami pharmaceutical error lawyers have over 130 years of combined experience navigating these types of complex claims; we know the challenges you face and we know how to fight for the justice and fair recovery you deserve.
Common Pharmaceutical Mistakes
Like the doctors that prescribe medications, pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and pharmacy staff members have a duty to provide patients with a reasonable level of care. Most medications have side effects ranging from mild to severe; failure to take this into account and warn patients of possible side effects can have devastating consequences.
At Greenberg, Stone & Urbano, we represent victims of all types of pharmaceutical errors, including:
- Misreading prescriptions
- Incorrect dosages (over-dosage/under-dosage)
- Failure to warn of side effects
- Improper instructions
- Dispensing the wrong medication
- Toxicity and poisoning
- Mislabeling errors
- Defective/contaminated medications
- Accidental fatal overdose
- Adverse interactions with other medications
Elements of Pharmaceutical Error Cases
There are countless examples of pharmacies, including both local pharmacies and national chains, making mistakes that result in catastrophic injuries or claim the lives of victims. However, the burden of proof still rests on injured individuals and the loved ones of those wrongfully killed.
In order to be successful in your pharmaceutical case, our attorneys will strive to prove the following elements:
- The pharmacy owed you a duty of care (in other words, you had your prescription filled by that particular pharmacy)
- The pharmacy or one of its employees breached this duty of care by improperly filling your prescription or making some other mistake
- This breach caused you harm (an injury, illness, complications, worsening condition, or the death of your loved one)
- The harm you suffered resulted in measurable damages, such as medical expenses, lost income/wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, etc.
