No Recovery, You Owe Us Nothing
Hospitals are hectic places, with multiple professionals engaged in the care of dozens of patients . Medications are prescribed, filled and administered in a fast-pace environment that is prone to mix-ups and missteps. One small prescription error can have devastating consequences.
Searcy Denney has 40 years of experience serving injured patients throughout Florida. We handle complex matters involving hospital prescription mistakes, including wrong administration of dangerous mediations, contraindicated drugs and overdoes. Our legal team holds the hospital, doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other negligent parties accountable for the injuries you sustain because of a prescription error.

Every Florida prescription error lawyer at our firm has the advanced technological knowledge and access to well-respected experts to build a strong case when a hospital’s use of its CPOE contributed to your injuries.
Searcy Denney advocates for your right to compensation if a hospital has administered a wrong pharmaceutical or dose that caused you injuries.
