Prescription medications are an essential part of treatment regimens for a wide variety of illnesses and conditions. Before patients takes a new medication, steps must be taken to ensure that it is safe for them to do so. Consideration must be given to the side effects of the drug, the patient's drug allergies, the potential for cross-reaction with other drugs, proper dosage and other factors.
The failure to consider any one of these factors could expose patients to significant health risks or even death. If you or a loved one has suffered any kind of negative impact connected to a drug that was prescribed by your doctor, you should speak to a reliable Florida personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. You may have grounds to seek damages for your medical care, pain and suffering, and other considerations.

Seeking a Positive Outcome in Complex Medical Negligence Cases
At the law firm of Gibbs & Parnell, P.A., our Tampa medication error attorneys have helped countless clients who suffered as a result of a medication error. There are a number of parties who may be held liable in these cases, including the doctors who prescribe the medications, the pharmacists who fill them and the people who administer the medication.
In every case, we work hard to determine who committed the error and who had the opportunity to stop it. In some cases, for example, a pharmacist can be held liable when he or she fills a prescription correctly, but fails to recognize the potential for a cross-reaction with another drug. We seek the maximum compensation available in your case and work to ensure that all negligent parties are held accountable.
