Process of Pursuing Pharmaceutical Errors

Florida law requires you to bring your claim within a specific statute of limitations, possibly as short as two years from when you should have discovered the injury to you.

If you suspect you have been injured by a pharmacist’s mistake, pursue your rights immediately. Early investigation can improve your chances of achieving justice. Over time, evidence is destroyed or lost and witnesses’ memories fade. Our attorneys conduct a hard-hitting, thorough investigation to keep your claim moving forward toward resolution.

Our lawyers settle many pharmaceutical mistake claims through negotiations and mediation. We can maximize the settlement amount by presenting convincing evidence gathered during our dedicated investigations. If the pharmacy or its insurance company refuses to agree to your rightful settlement, we have the evidence and the experience to bring your claim to trial.

Proving the Elements of a Pharmacy Mistake

To prove a pharmacy mistake occurred, you must prove each element by a preponderance of the evidence. This means that more likely than not the medical mistake occurred as a result of a deviation from the standard of care and it caused your injury (injury). The elements of pharmacy negligence (mistake) include:

  • The pharmacists or pharmacy owed you a duty of care
  • That duty was breached by an act or an omission that deviated from the acceptable standard of care for a similar professional or entity.
  • The breach of duty resulted in your injury
  • You suffered damages because of the injury

Anticipating Defenses

You must not only prove that you have injuries, but that the injuries were caused by the pharmacy error. Defendants typically refute this vital element of causation. The medical professionals and pharmacies may assert that your injuries existed prior to your medical care or that a subsequent accident caused your injuries. Our lawyers anticipate these common preexisting injury and intervening event arguments while building your case.
