Port St. Lucie Medication Error Lawyer
Generally, doctors almost immediately prescribe medication, based solely on a brief physical examination and perhaps a medical history review. Haste makes waste. The timeline is so compressed that doctors may not see dangerous red flags about possible side-effects. Additionally, doctors may not be completely up to date on the latest available medications, as well as their possible dangerous side-effects.
Finally, when the prescription goes to a pharmacy, important information might get lost in translation. That’s especially true if the doctor includes very specific instructions, like dosage or dosage frequency.
In contrast, the thorough Port St. Lucie medication error lawyers at Freidin Brown, P.A. never rush through any aspect of your case. Instead, we carefully evaluate the facts and determine your legal options. Then, when your case goes to trial, we never take shortcuts or look for an easy way out. Instead, we are with you until the end of the line and you obtain maximum compensation for your serious injuries.
Why Should We File a Medical Malpractice Claim?
All these claims are complex, and medication error claims are more complex than most. The responsibility could lie with the manufacturer who made the drugs, the doctor who prescribed them, or the pharmacist who dispensed them.
This complexity is basically a headache that many recovering victims don’t want to deal with. That’s especially true if a health insurance company, or other third party, paid most or all of the victim’s medical bills.
Case complexity is a valid concern. However, if a victim partners with the right Port St. Lucie medication error lawyer, your legal team deals with all these complexities. The right lawyer has a combination of experience in the field, accessibility to clients, and dedication to injury law.
Furthermore, health insurance agreements usually have obscure clauses that prohibit payment if the expense is injury related. Once the company finds out what the expense was for, they usually demand their money back. Even if that doesn’t happen, no health insurance policy compensates victims for their emotional distress and other noneconomic losses. Only a negligence claim does that.
How Do We Find the Right Attorney?
We touched on the key qualities a lawyer should have above. Now, let’s look at these qualities in more detail.
- Accessibility: Overly-accessible lawyers are usually a bad sign. There’s usually a reason an attorney has few clients, and it’s normally not a good reason. At the same time, your attorney should be responsive to your questions and inquiries. Your lawyer, and not a non-lawyer paralegal, should be there for you.
- Dedication: Beware of the lawyer who handles a few negligence cases on the side, no matter how capable or trustworthy or well-recommended the lawyer is. Personal injury law is a unique area. Only a dedicated lawyer has the passion necessary to see your case through to the end.
- Experience: As the old saying goes, there’s no substitute for experience. Attorneys learn things in the real world they couldn’t possibly learn in school. This experience should include trial experience. Your lawyer should be ready, willing, and able to go the distance for you.
Do not take too long as you look for a lawyer. Medical malpractice victims have a limited amount of time to act.
