1. Who is responsible for the medication mistake that caused my injury?

Your case may involve multiple negligent parties, including doctors, nurses, the hospital, pharmacy, pharmaceutical manufacturer or another medical professional or facility.


2. What damages am I entitled to for my pharmaceutical error claim?

Depending upon the facts of your individual case, you may be entitled to compensation and benefits for:

  • Medical bills
  • Future medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Disfigurement and scarring
  • Disability
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Pain and suffering


3. Is it too late for me to file a pharmacist error lawsuit?

Most pharmacist error claims have a two-year statute of limitation in Florida. However, there are exceptions, including if you discovered your injury months after taking the medication, you were a child when the drug mistake occurred or the pharmacy concealed the error. We urge you to seek legal advice even if you think you have missed the deadline. Your lawyer can evaluate whether you may still bring the claim.


4. Are medical malpractice damages capped in Florida?

Florida law caps non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering. However the law does not cap economic damages, such as medical bills. The medical malpractice caps have been challenged in court in several cases and the courts have sided with the plaintiffs. Our attorneys can update you on the latest court cases and legislative actions regarding damages caps.


5. The pharmacy has offered me a settlement. Should I accept it?

The pharmacy expects you to waive your rights to pursue additional damages once you accept the settlement. Speak to your lawyer before doing so. Your lawyer can advise you of whether the settlement represents the value of your case or whether decline the offer and seek greater compensation.


6. Will I have to testify at a trial?

Most pharmacy error claims do not go to trial, but are resolved in a settlement. However, if your claim goes to trial, you will be expected to testify. Our attorneys prepare you before the trial so you feel confident about your testimony and less anxious about the process.


7. How do I know if I have a valid medication error mistake claim?

During a no-risk free consultation, our lawyers evaluate your claim and give you a candid assessment so you can make a well-informed decision about your case.


8. What if I can’t afford a lawyer?

Searcy Denney handles your claim on a contingency fee basis. This means we do not bill you for lawyers’ fees unless we recover compensation. In the unlikely event we do not recover damages, you owe us nothing. So, no matter your financial circumstances, you can afford to retain our firm to pursue your legal rights.
