Tampa Pharmaceutical & Medication Injury Lawyer
Anytime you visit a medical professional and they tell you that you need a certain type and dose of a medication, or they prescribe use of a medical device, most people do just what the doctor ordered. We are all taught from a very young age to always follow doctor’s orders. However, doctors are only human and mistakes are made. Medications also make it to the market and on pharmacists’ shelves only to be discovered as dangerous after they have been prescribed to unsuspecting patients and customers. While oftentimes this is the result of a mistake in dosage or side effects that are discovered after the fact, these mistakes or oversights can lead to very serious injuries or even death. Pharmaceutical injury should never simply be accepted. The negative health effects or illness these mistakes can lead to should never be ignored. Contact our Tampa pharmaceutical injury lawyer today.
