San Antonio Drug Side Effects Attorneys
Millions of Americans rely on prescription drugs and most are aware that with all medications, side effects may occur. When a doctor prescribes a medication, they aren’t just expected to identify the one that rids the patient of negative symptoms, but must inform and identify the best possible one for that individual. Doctors should prescribe the drug whose possible side effects would have the lowest impact on that specific patient. The failure of a doctor or pharmacist to prevent a patient from experiencing severe or fatal side effects can render him or her vulnerable to accusations of medical malpractice.
There are many opportunities throughout the process of diagnosing a condition and prescribing a drug for negligence to creep in. The chain throughout which the medication is eventually consumed by a patient begins with the doctor’s legal duties in writing and prescribing the medicine, the pharmacist’s proper dispensing of the drug, and finally the caretakers who may administer it. Any breakdowns could lead to harmful pharmaceutical errors.
At the Chris Mayo Law Firm, our San Antonio pharmaceutical error attorneys understand how frustrating it is to deal with side effects that could have been avoided. We are passionate about holding those responsible liable. Call (210) 999-9999 to speak with one of our lawyers today.
Common Side Effect Claims
It is nearly impossible to outline every legitimate side effect in a pharmaceutical error case, but our attorneys are happy to discuss the specifics of our clients’ cases. A side effect is characterized as a symptom that does not occur with the condition afflicting the patient. It is important to clearly identify what side effect you are experiencing and what is causing your symptoms. Common side effects that can warrant litigation include:
- Liver damage
- Heart conditions
- Mental distress
- Physical Debilitation
In extreme cases, even death can occur if a pharmaceutical error is especially severe. If you lost a loved one because of the negligence of a doctor or pharmacist, contact our attorneys today to discuss the specifics of your case. A viable pharmaceutical error lawsuit requires that you have the documentation, medical diagnosis, prescription, and the support of a skilled legal team. Let us help you develop a strong case for yourself or a loved one.
