What Constitutes A Dangerous Drug Case?

There are many different reasons why a patient may have had a dangerous reaction to a drug, and each situation requires a different legal approach. Some common dangerous drug issues have included:

  • Wrong medication prescribed for a condition or a specific medical profile
  • Wrong dose prescribed
  • Right dose prescribed but wrong dose dispensed by the pharmacist or given by the nurse
  • Medication causes severe side effects at any dose or above a specific dose
  • Medication taken in combination with the other medications causes a severe reaction

These situations will require investigation, and perhaps even a toxicology report that must be obtained within a short period of time after the incident. Our attorneys are strong advocates who seek compensation from all available sources, including pharmaceutical companies, hospitals, doctors and other liable parties.
