Palm Beach County Pharmacy Error

Palm Beach County Pharmacy Error LawyerPharmacists spend years learning how to prepare and dispense medication exactly as prescribed. Despite their demanding schooling and intensive, hands-on training, prescription errors remain relatively ubiquitous and happen far more often than they should.

Some of the most common causes of medication mistakes include:

  • Illegible handwriting;
  • Similar packaging for different drugs;
  • Similar names for different drugs;
  • Incorrect data entry;
  • Improper stocking; and
  • Mislabeling.

Of course, for patients who fall victim to prescription errors, the precise cause does not matter; all that matters is their health. If it was threatened, they may be entitled to compensation for all resulting damages.

If you suffered complications following a medication mistake, turn to a pharmacy error lawyer at Donaldson & Weston to determine the most strategic way to proceed. We require no payment upfront, and clients do not have to pay a retainer to take advantage of our legal services. Call 772-266-5555 to schedule a free case evaluation with a medication error attorney in Palm Beach County.

Why Should I Hire a Palm Beach County Pharmacy Error Attorney Right Away?

If you suffered serious health complications following some kind of medication mistake, seeking medical care should be your first priority. Once your health stabilizes, though, the next step is to start the claims process. Here are just a few reasons to call a pharmacy error attorney as soon as possible:

  1. Critical evidence will not be available indefinitely.

    Medical records can be altered or destroyed, and eyewitnesses lose credibility with every day that passes between when the incident occurred and when they actually testify. Since much of the evidence that could prove your case may be time sensitive, it is wise to enlist a seasoned ally and start building your claim as soon as it becomes apparent that a provider was negligent.

  2. Minor missteps or oversights can jeopardize the proceedings.

    Making a seemingly minor mistake early in the proceedings can later prevent you from recovering the compensation you deserve. For example, if you give the insurance company a recorded statement about your injuries but your condition turns out to be worse than initially believed, you may have difficulty obtaining a fair settlement.

  3. There are strict deadlines for bringing the case to court.

    If you are unable to reach a fair settlement with the insurance adjuster, you have a limited amount of time to go to trial. In Florida, claimants typically have two years from the date on which the error occurred-or should have been discovered-to file a formal medical malpractice lawsuit. Since there are exceptions to this deadline, it is wise to call an attorney as soon as possible so you have plenty of time to take the case to trial if necessary.

The attorneys at Donaldson & Weston helped me get an amazing result on my case. Obviously I’ve been through a lot physically but I feel better now and the money really helped my family.

★★★★★
After my accident happened I waited to hear back from the insurance company for about 6 months. I just felt like they kept jerking me around. They even told me not to hire an attorney because it would mean less money in my pocket. I couldn't wait any longer because my bills were out of hand. I hired this firm and they were solid. I got a great result without having to go to court. - S.C.
