Can I sue my doctor for prescribing medicine that harmed me?
Yes,under the right circumstances. Certainly doctors need to understand and know exactly what it is they’re prescribing. There are instructions and warnings and labels that go along with these medications and the doctor needs to be aware of those when prescribing medications. Another thing that happens. In some of these medications there are specific instructions that they need to be monitored after they’re prescribed. You need to be coming back in to have blood work done so they can monitor levels to see if you’re having a bad reaction or maybe get a toxic level of the medication in your system. So, there are circumstances where a physician can in fact breach a standard of care, break a rule as it relates to how they prescribe medication. If you believe that that’s happened to you then the physician has wrongfully prescribed a medication to you and you’ve been harmed. Give us a call at Bailey Javins & Carter. We’d be happy to investigate it for you.
