Tacoma Pharmacist Malpractice Lawyer · Seattle Prescription Error Attorney

Were you injured after taking a dangerous prescription drug or because of a prescription error by a doctor or pharmacist? Doctors have a responsibility to ensure the medications they prescribe are safe for their patients. That includes side effects that may not affect every patient the same way. Pharmacists are held liable as well for ensuring that patients picking up prescription medication are aware of the proper dosage and possible health effects.

Recovering money damages for a pharmaceutical error requires that your personal injury litigation attorney understands the key medical issues, including what your doctor should have known about possible side effects and the interaction between the pharmaceutical product and your body. At the Savage Law Firm in Seattle, we have represented plaintiffs injured because of dangerous prescription drugs and pharmacist errors for more than three decades. Attorneys Carol Hepburn and Bill Savage are AV-rated* and are recognized as prominent medical malpractice attorneys in Seattle.

We work with leading independent medical experts to help us investigate the complex medical issues involved in prescription error cases. We cover the cost of investigating and preparing your case for settlement or trial. You won’t pay attorneys fees unless you win.

Hospital Chart Errors Are No Excuse

Overworked nurses in hospitals often misread charts or get their patients confused. Nursing errors and hospital administration negligence are no excuse for the serious injuries that can result from a medication error.
