When you visit a doctor and they tell you that you need a certain drug at a specific dose or a medical device to help with a condition, you are going to do what the doctor tells you to do in order to get better. We are all told as children that we are to follow the doctor’s orders and that is something we carry with us for the remainder of our lives.
However, there are times when mistakes happen. Perhaps the mistake is on the end of the doctor, the pharmacy, or the pharmaceutical company for distributing a harmful drug. Whatever the reason, serious injury, illness, or death could result. One of the major issues is drugs making their way to shelves to then be discovered as dangerous when people start becoming sick or they pass away. It is usually found that the drugs were not tested by the pharmaceutical company as they should have been, which is considered pharmaceutical negligence.
If you have been injured by a drug that was improperly prescribed or has been determined to be a dangerous drug, you may have a personal injury claim. The moment you are able, it is important that you contact an experienced Florida personal injury attorney who is knowledgeable in the area of pharmaceutical negligence and can use the law to your benefit.
