No Recovery, You Owe Us Nothing
Searcy Denney has represented injured patients in Florida for over 40 years. We have refined our processes for investigating and preparing a solid medical malpractice claim. During our investigation, our attorneys typically review the circumstances surrounding your injuries, subpoena hospital and pharmacy records, talk to eyewitnesses and consult with experts. Our Florida pharmaceutical liability attorneys have one goal: to recover the maximum damages possible on your claim.
Florida law requires you to bring your claim within two years from the date the medical mistake occurred, or within two years from when you should have discovered the injury, but no more than four years from the date of the injury. In rare circumstances, the statute of limitations is extended to seven years in cases of fraud or purposeful concealment. .
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.
To prove a pharmacy mistake occurred, you must prove each element by a preponderance of the evidence. This means that the medical mistake more likely occurred than that it did not and it caused damages (injury). The elements of pharmacy negligence (mistake) are:
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.
