Phoenix Medication Error Lawyer
Have you been the victim of a prescription error?
A medication error can have devastating and even fatal consequences. We trust doctors, nurses and pharmacists to prevent medication errors by prescribing the right medication in the correct dose. An overdose, or the administration of contraindicated medications, can cause a serious or deadly drug interaction. Carelessness, inexperience or a lack of clear communication between doctors, hospital staff and pharmacists are examples of the type of medical negligence that can lead to a fatal medication error.
When hospitals, doctors or pharmacies are negligent, an experienced Phoenix medication error attorney at Palumbo Wolfe & Palumbo can explain your rights in seeking compensation for the harm you suffered. While it may be tempting to simply take on the case yourself and negotiate with the insurance companies for your desired settlement, it is advised against. Such negotiations can often lead to your case being dismissed, delayed or settled for less than the proper amount. When you are looking for adequate monetary compensation, don't attempt it alone -- let us help.
Legal Representation for Victims of Medication Errors and Pharmacy Malpractice in Phoenix
Common medication errors include the failure to take an adequate medical history, and warn a patient about serious and potentially deadly side effects and interactions with other prescription or over-the-counter drugs. Doctors and pharmacists have a legal and ethical responsibility to ensure that patients understand the risks involved in taking a prescription medication. If they fail to do so, and you are injured, we will help you determine if you are entitled to compensation for the resulting injuries, medical expenses and other losses.
