San Antonio Lawyer For Victims Of Medication Errors
You should be able to expect that medication prescribed by a physician will improve your health, not harm you. Unfortunately, medication errors by physicians, hospitals and pharmacists are more common than you might think. When a medication error causes injury, illness or wrongful death, you have the right to seek financial compensation for your losses.
At the Tinsman & Sciano, Inc., we represent clients who have been harmed due to medication errors. We take on civilian and military hospitals, doctors, pharmacies and any other party whose negligence resulted in injury to our client. We also sue medication manufacturers whose drug testing procedures failed to identify dangerous side effects of prescription drugs.
Types Of Prescription Drug Errors
Founding attorney Jeffrey C. Anderson has more than 35 years of experience, and he is a former commanding officer of a medic-training company at Fort Sam Houston. His combined legal experience and medical background are greatly beneficial to our clients dealing with the aftermath of medication errors.
Our cases have involved:
- Physician’s failure to identify patient allergies before prescribing a medication
- Physician’s failure to find out what other drugs a patient was taking before writing a prescription
- Pharmacist filling prescription with wrong medication or wrong dosage
- Hospital failing to provide patient with medication instructions at discharge
- Chart mistakes that resulted in an overdose of medication
- Failure to warn the patient about serious side effects of prescription medications
Although medication errors can involve any type of drug, those related to vaccines, penicillin and childhood immunizations such as a DPT shot are often in the news. We handle cases involving allergic reactions to routine immunizations, as well as those involving less well-known medications.
We also handle federal tort claims for individuals and families who have been harmed due to negligence at VA medical facilities and military hospitals. If you need a Texas lawyer to initiate a federal tort claim, our office can help you file Standard Form 95 (SF95).
