Modern medicine has become incredibly complex. New prescription medications can accomplish amazing results, but only if prescribed correctly.
For example, an intake that fails to comprehensively screen a patient's history for medication allergies might result in a prescription that causes an adverse reaction. Unlike other forms of medical negligence, however, medication errors may not be immediately apparent. In this example, an adverse response might not occur until days or even weeks after the medication was first ingested.
Doctors have a responsibility to prescribe medications correctly. A new prescription must be compatible with any other medications that a patient may be taking. A prescription must also be in the correct dosage and for the proper length of treatment. If you suffered a medication injury, our medical malpractice law firm has the experience to investigate these factors and build a strong case for you.
