Prescription drugs are meant for one of two purposes. They are supposed to lengthen the life of the patient or improve the quality of life for the patient. They are not meant to kill the patient.
However, prescription drugs can be fatal in some situations. If you believe that your loved one died after taking a drug consider whether:
- The prescribing doctor warned your loved one of the risks.
- The prescribing doctor accounted for your loved one’s other prescriptions and health conditions.
- The drug manufacturer provided proper warnings of the potential side effects.
- The pharmacist provided the right medication and the right dose of that medication.
In some cases, the negligent (or deliberate) actions of the doctor, drug company, or pharmacist may have needlessly caused your loved one’s death. If you believe that this has happened to you then please consider calling a wrongful death lawyer to learn more about your rights and potential recovery.
