San Jose Prescription Errors Attorney
Prescription drugs are considered "controlled substances" in the United States, and this means that the government regulates their use. These drugs save lives every day, but if used improperly may cause serious injury or even death to unsuspecting patients. As such, prescription errors are an important part of our law firm's practice. If you or someone you love suffered an adverse reaction or was otherwise injured as the result of a prescription drug error, you may have grounds for a medical malpractice claim against the party responsible for making the mistake. This may be a doctor, pharmacy, hospital or other medical care professional or facility.
To talk to a professional about your case, contact a San Jose prescription errors lawyer at our law offices at 800-670-8142; your initial consultation is free and confidential.
