Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Pharmaceutical Malpractice Law Firm Washington DCIf you or someone you love has been given the wrong prescription drug by a physician, it may be in your best interest to discuss your or your loved one’s rights with a reputable pharmaceutical malpractice law firm Washington, DC community members can rely on. When a person in the United States goes to a doctor to help themselves to get better, they should be able to have a reasonable expectation that what the doctor does or gives them to help them get better- will not make them worse or give them new problems. Unfortunately, this happens. A patient can become worse off after going to a negligent doctor. Not only do they not get a treatment that they do need, very often, a wrong medication can cause new, sometimes even fatal problems.

Compensation for Pharmaceutical Malpractice

A pharmaceutical malpractice law firm in Washington DC can help victims of pharmaceutical malpractice and their families to understand the victim’s rights. The victim may have a personal injury claim that he or she, or the deceased victim’s surviving family members, can seek compensation for.

Doctors and other healthcare practitioners that prescribe the wrong medicines or the wrong dosage of a medicine may be guilty of medical malpractice. Prescription error is a type of medical malpractice that is often the result of a healthcare practitioner’s negligence. Medical malpractice means that a medical professional has not met the medical industry’s acceptable standard of care for his or her patient. While many doctors provide the acceptable standard of care to their patients unfortunately, some do not. When this causes harm and suffering to someone, they and/or their family should be compensated for expenses, hardships, and pain and suffering that are the result of this.

Personal injury laws differ from state to state. This is one of the reasons why it is a good idea to get help from a lawyer in the state where a prescription error occurred. If you were injured in Washington DC, Maryland or Virginia, Cohen & Cohen is a highly rated pharmaceutical malpractice law firm located in Washington DC, with a track record of successfully defending their client’s rights.

How Can Prescription Errors Occur

When someone’s health is negatively impacted by a prescription error in today’s age of information and technology, it is hard to understand how this could have happened. Common causes of, preventable prescription errors include but are not limited to:

  • Drugs with similar names can be incorrectly dispensed
  • Handwritten prescriptions are illegible
  • Drugs with negative interactions are prescribed at the same time because the physician
    prescribed them without looking at patients already existing drug regime
  • Incorrect drug dose is prescribed or dispensed
  • Prescriptions may not be transmitted to a pharmacy, and a sick or ailing patient may not realize
    that they are not taking all of the medications they are supposed to be taking

The above are some common reasons that people wind up needing the help of a personal injury law firm that is experienced in successfully defending pharmaceutical malpractice victims and their family’s rights.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
