Were You Hurt By A Prescription Drug Mistake?

Pharmacists and other medical professionals are highly trained individuals. Pharmacy customers and patients trust the proper medication will be dispensed with great accuracy. Falling short of those expectations and committing a medication error puts unwitting patients at risk. Serious injury or death can occur from taking the wrong medication, having a medication administered at a dangerously high dosage, or from a drug interaction that a doctor or nurse should have been aware of.

At the law office of Alan D. Bell, our Newark area attorney recognizes the consequences of medication errors and aggressively advocates for victims of negligence.

We hold pharmacists, doctors, nurses and other medical professionals accountable when they fail to provide the most basic standards of care and safety for their patients. If you or a loved one has been harmed as the result of a medication or pharmaceutical error, contact us online or call 973-826-2342.

Holding Negligent Parties Accountable When Your Trust Has Been Violated

When you pick up your medication, you assume that the right medication is contained in the bottle. You probably will not think twice that the proper amount is being prescribed, that the medicine in the bottle is what is stated on the label and that any required warnings have been passed along to you. Similarly, when you visit a clinic or a hospital, it is fair to assume that any medication administered in such a setting will be administered properly. You do not expect a calamity.

As much as you rely on your pharmacist for accuracy and attention to detail when filling a prescription, he or she can fall short. Nurses and other medical workers can become distracted. Regardless of the reason for the mistake, the consequences of a medication error can be dire. Far too much is at stake to not take immediate legal action and hold negligent parties accountable.

Building Your Claim And Fighting For The Best Outcome

We represent clients victimized by a pharmacist's oversight or by a doctor's failure to follow up. We work hard to build a strong case for liability that shows a once-trusted professional acted in a reckless and negligent matter. To establish your claim, we spend time with you to get your side of the story and we will thoroughly review medical records to secure the facts necessary to build your claim.
