Prescription Errors

Florida Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Prescription drugs can have severe side effects and when an error occurs involving patient medication, severe injuries can result. The health care process can be extremely complex and an error can occur at any point. A doctor can prescribe the wrong drug that you could be allergic to, a pharmacist can make an error when dispensing medication, and a health care worker may administer the wrong dose of a drug. When a patient visits a hospital for medical care, the last thing they want is to suffer further injuries.

If you or a loved one have suffered injuries due to a prescription error, you should not be made to pay more than you already have.

Filing a Medical Malpractice Claim

Health care workers have a duty to their patients to provide care and not take actions which can be reasonably foreseen to result in injury. When an injury does occur due to the negligence of a health care worker or a hospital mistake, the patient may be able to claim legal compensation. Not every medical action will result in a malpractice suit and in order to prove that a prescription error occurred, several factors must be present.

  1. Legal medical relationship: This means that you must have legally hired the doctor or medical organization to provide you with medical treatment. Unsolicited medical advice may not constitute a claim.
  2. Negligent action: A doctor, nurse, or another healthcare provider must have performed a negligent action. For example, if a doctor overlooks a medical history and prescribes a drug which reacts negatively to a current treatment, the doctor may be found liable for a negligent action.
  3. Your injury was caused by the negligent action: For a prescription error claim to be successful, the negligent action in question must have been directly responsible for your injury. If no injuries were suffered, the act of an incorrect prescription alone may not be enough to constitute a claim.
