When Medicines Harm

When you’re sick, you go to the doctor. You trust your doctor to treat your illness so that you can get back on your feet as soon as possible. Many times, a prescription for a medication is ordered. You take it according to instructions and, hopefully, it works.

That’s the perfect scenario and one that a patient will experience the vast majority of the time.

There are other times when Theodoros & Rooth sometimes needs to get involved.

This is when a medical provider prescribes a new drug but fails to determine if that drug how it will interact with other medications you are taking. Or sometimes they don’t warn you about certain foods or activities that could cause a problem with this new medication. Other times, a pharmacist will make a mistake and misread the prescription or fill the ‘script with the wrong medication or dosage.

In any of these scenarios, the result could lead to a serious injury or even death. If the prescriber or the pharmacist is suspected to be at fault through carelessness or other instance of negligence, a lawsuit could be necessary.
