Types of Cases We Handle
If you are in the Morehead City area and have suffered from an episode involving a dangerous interaction between medications, we are available to fight for your rights. We handle all types of dangerous interactions cases, such as:
- Failure to conduct a drug review — A pharmacist is required to check each of a patient’s prescriptions to make sure there are no interactions or potential allergies. If a pharmacist fails to review possible drug interactions, a patient could suffer a severe and life-threatening interaction.
- Error in dosage — Dosing is more complicated than simply getting the medication type right. The amount and the frequency must be correct. Otherwise, too little or too much medication could result in dangerous complications.
- Failure to counsel patients — Pharmacists should counsel every patient regarding each medication, making them aware of possible side effects or symptoms that could occur.
- Other pharmacy liability — For example, a pharmacist may fill the wrong prescription and give it to a patient.
There are several possible types of drug interactions. An interaction between two drugs is called a drug-drug interaction. This kind of reaction prevents the medication from working as intended. One or both medicines may be more or less effective or can cause unexpected side effects. Interactions between drugs can cause annoying interactions, but sometimes they can be extremely harmful or even result in death. Medications can also have interactions with foods you eat, known as drug-food interactions, or with your medical condition, which is called a drug-condition interaction. At Law Office of Sam Scudder, we can handle cases related to any of these types of interactions.
Sometimes it is obvious what caused an interaction because you took a new medication and did not otherwise alter your routine. At other times, it may be difficult to pinpoint the reason for the extreme side effects. We can enlist experts to help understand what may have caused your dangerous interaction to prove that your injuries were caused by pharmacy malpractice.
