What should I do if I was injured by a prescription error?

Prescription drug errors can happen due to a number of reasons. A pharmacist can make a mistake while filling a prescription, or a doctor may fail to write down the correct drug name. Taking the wrong type of medication or dosage can lead patients to suffer side effects or other injuries.

If a prescription drug error occurs due to someone else’s negligence and causes you injury, you may be entitled to compensation. Make sure you hold on to all of your medical records, bills, prescriptions, packaging and anything else related to the drug. These items may serve as useful evidence if you choose to bring a claim.

Because such cases can be complex, it is important to contact a knowledgeable Tampa medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible. Joyce and Reyes Law Firm P.A. will evaluate your case and guide you through your options in bringing a claim.
