Why hire a pharmaceutical negligence attorney?

Medication errors are one of the most common types of medical malpractice, and they can result in serious injury to patients. It is important to know that if a mistake on the part of a hospital, doctor or pharmacist caused you to suffer an injury, then you may be entitled to compensation through a pharmaceutical negligence lawsuit.

One type of pharmaceutical negligence is the result of “pill mills,” which are clinics that improperly prescribe pain medication and other pharmaceuticals, without regard to the possibility that the patient may suffer from addiction issues. When these improper prescriptions result in injury, the doctors and clinic owners can be held accountable.

Another type of pharmaceutical negligence occurs when a hospital, doctor or pharmacist makes an error in prescribing or administering a medication, or filling a prescription. When this negligence results in injury, a lawsuit may be appropriate.

If you believe you have been the victim of pharmaceutical negligence, it is important that you consult with an attorney who can advise you of your rights and pursue a lawsuit on your behalf.
