Statewide Florida Physician Negligence Attorneys
While patients are informed of risks and required to give consent for surgical procedures, they still must put their trust in physicians and other health care professionals. Powerful medications carry many warnings, but the prescribing and administering doctors must still attend carefully to factors that determine whether their use is safe for a given patient.
Doctors are charged with the duty to warn patients about dangerous side effects and, in some cases, are also required to distribute FDA mandated warnings. Serious injuries and wrongful deaths due to misuse of medication, including anesthesia errors and injections with drugs such as the synthetic protein Procrit, are tragically common.
If you have lost a family member or suffered serious injury due to a suspected misuse of medication, contact a Tampa medication error attorney at our firm now to discuss what happened and your legal right to compensation.

- Non-adherence to manufacturer recommendations and protocols provided for medication use and anesthesia selection
