The Wrong Combination Of Medications Can Be Deadly
Pharmacists and doctors are responsible to understand how prescription drugs interact with each other and can cause medication errors. When prescribing drugs, family physicians should take into account their patients’ medical history. A failure to do this could result in serious medical implications when prescribing drugs that dangerously interact with other medications.
For more than 60 years, the medical malpractice attorneys at The Lancione Law Firm, have provided strong advocacy and legal counsel to accident victims. We don’t just dabble in this area of the law. This is our focus. Our legal team is committed to helping clients put at risk from a pharmaceutical error obtain justice.
No amount of compensation can reverse the damage that has been done. But, we want you to obtain a full financial recovery for any current and future medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other expenses incurred from the malpractice.

Did Your Physician Fail To Discuss How Certain Medications React Together?
Many people take multiple prescriptions on a daily basis. Family doctors are responsible to review their patients’ medical history and understand the extent of prescription drugs they are taking. They also need to talk with their patients so they are aware of any over-the-counter prescriptions being taken and the amount of alcohol being consumed.
Unfortunately, family clinics are overworked and understaffed. Doctors often have little time to meet with their patients and may fail in asking the right questions to avoid medication errors. Our law firm is committing to holding medical professionals accountable for failing to take into account their patients’ medical history and the mix of prescription or over-the counter drugs being used. This can lead to a medical condition called polypharmacy when patients take more medications than necessary.
Years Of Experience Proving Fault Against Negligent Pharmacists
Prescription errors can occur for a variety of reasons. Often, pharmacies are overworked and understaffed. Many large chain pharmacies are open 24 hours a day. It’s not unusual for one pharmacist to be working at a time overseeing a handful of technicians. Fatigue, poor communication and hiring inexperienced professionals can lead to serious prescription errors.
If you believe your pharmacist filled the wrong prescription or gave you the wrong dosage, obtain experienced legal counsel. When you select our law firm, we will apply our years of experience and legal skills to your best interests. We conduct through investigations to uncover all sources of liability. All of our medical malpractice claims are prepared with enough evidence to prove fault in trial. Our strong litigation skills often prompt the at-fault party to make a full financial settlement offer to avoid going up against us in trial.
