How our Florida medical negligence attorneys can help
Nearly 4 billion prescriptions are filled each year in the U.S. and the number is still growing, while the amount of pharmacists remains the same.
As attorneys specializing in pharmacy errors, we have intensively investigated and researched the retail pharmacy industry. Pharmacists are simply not given enough time to do their jobs with 100% accuracy.
More and more frequently pharmacists find themselves stuck in the back room on an assembly line so that retailers can crank out prescriptions to their patients faster and faster.
The first priority of these huge drug retailers is the bottom line: the most sales at the lowest cost. As a result, patient safety is regularly compromised. Pharmacists often find themselves under extreme pressure to meet their quotas while also being denied the trained staff they need to perform their jobs without endangering the public.
Increased prescription volume leads to increased medication errors, with serious and fatal results.
We hold drug companies accountable when they hurt you.
Here are a few of the kinds of pharmacy error and medication error cases we have handled as Florida medical negligence attorneys:
- A pharmacist misfilled a prescription by giving the patient an incorrect drug; in this case, a small child was mistakenly given methadone, which is synthetic heroine, instead of methylphenidate, which is a generic Ritalin.
- A pharmacist mislabeled dosage instructions, causing the patient’s death by overdose.
- A pharmacist filled a prescription with 10 times the amount the patient should have received, causing an overdose that led to permanent heart damage. Filling prescriptions with the wrong dosage is a common medication error.
- A hospital provided albuterol to their patient who was allergic to this drug. This mishap caused respiratory arrest which contributed to the patient’s death.
ACT NOW! The law imposes strict time limits on your prescription error case.
The pharmacy will spend tens of thousands of dollars to defeat your claim. They do not want to change the way they do business. You need to retain a Florida medical negligence attorney who has been to battle with them before.
Prescription error cases require an experienced team. Scott Schuler and Brian Lee will assemble a staff of consultants that often includes nationally respected experts in the fields of pharmacy and pharmacology, in order to make certain the pharmacist and the pharmacy company, are held accountable.
