Getting Help After A Medication Error
Medication errors happen all the time; many times, they are the result of an unknown allergy. That is why every prescription you have filled comes with lengthy documentation about potential side effects. When a doctor fails to take certain risks and warning signs into account when prescribing your medication, however, serious, lasting effects can occur.
At the Law Offices of Wade E. Byrd P.A. in Fayetteville, North Carolina, we know how to prove when a doctor’s negligence in prescribing certain medication caused you harm. Our firm has more than 40 years of experience handling these and other medical malpractice cases in and across North Carolina and in neighboring states, establishing our reputation as attorneys who know how to fight and win for their clients.
When A Doctor’s Failure To Double-Check Causes You Harm
Many times, doctors simply focus on what they are treating, failing to take into account past treatments or other medications you are taking. Without taking the proper precautions, you could be left suffering from the effects of your doctor:
- Prescribing the wrong medication
- Prescribing the wrong dosage, leading to an overdose
- Failing to take harmful interactions with other drugs into account
- Prescribing a drug when you have a known allergy
- Not prescribing enough refills
A medication error can lead to serious effects on your health: Organ failure, strokes, heart attacks, internal bleeding, brain damage and even death are possible. These can lead to skyrocketing bills and more medical treatment than you should have ever needed.
That is why our firm takes great pains to build strong claims backed by sound evidence. We work with pharmacists, doctors and forensic nurses to determine where warning signs were missed and a doctor’s negligence led to your injuries. We have the track record at trial and in settlement negotiations to prove that we are serious when we tell the insurance companies that we will not settle for less than is in your interests.
