Medical Malpractice & Prescription Drugs
Virginia, Washington, DC, & Maryland
Unfortunately, when your healthcare provider prescribes drugs for you to take, there are sometimes things that go wrong. For instance, a healthcare provider may prescribe you drugs without informing you of their associated side effects; you might be allergic to certain drugs; you might be prescribed drugs for a misdiagnosed medical problem; or there could be problems when the prescription is filled.
Another serious problem occurs when your pharmacy fills your prescription improperly, and gives you the wrong medication. All too often wrong medications are taken or prescribed incorrectly. Not only will incorrect drugs injure you, they can aggravate any medical conditions that you have, or even cause death.
When your doctor prescribes the incorrect prescription, or when the pharmacy fills the correct prescription improperly, they should be held accountable. The affects from taking the incorrect medicine can be very dangerous.
You need to be prescribed the correct drugs for your medical treatment, and your doctor must also review possible risks and side effects that could result from you taking the drug. If your doctor fails to warn you of the risks or side effects of a medication, or if you receive an incorrect prescription or medication, you could have a medical malpractice claim.
An experienced Maryland medical malpractice attorney will work with you to help you recover from any damages that were inflicted upon you from taking the wrong medication. You deserve to be compensated for your personal injuries or harm to your health.
