All of us at one time or another  have received a prescription drug from a doctor. We almost take for granted that it’s the right drug for our treatment and that the pharmacist gives us the right drug when he or she fills the prescription.

Are you suffering from the adverse side effects of prescription drugs? Call Dawson & Albritton, PA today at 252-752-2485

Serious health problems result from prescription errors or when the prescribed drug reacts to other drugs we are taking in a way that adversely affects our health. This is called contraindication.  This includes drugs prescribed after surgeries and by other health care providers like counselors, physical therapists, psychologist and psychiatrists.

Dawson & Albritton offers pharmaceutical (prescription drug) malpractice representation in Eastern North Carolina, including Greenville, New Bern,  Rocky Mount, Tarboro, Raleigh and the coastal communities of Morehead City, Jacksonville and Wilmington.

Each day we see advertisements for prescription drugs that include a long list of disclaimers after telling us about the benefits of the drug. This leads us to believe that the pharmaceutical company can’t be challenged. But that’s not the case. Dawson & Albritton, PA can guide you through the complicated pathway of dealing with physicians, pharmacists, health care providers and insurance companies.

It’s important to know that the term “pharmaceutical malpractice” covers a broad range of conditions that can occur if you are a patient, hospitalized or under treatment.. We can help you sort this out.

During our initial consultation, Dawson & Albritton will take the time to listen and recommend the best course of action for you or your loved ones.  The journey can be a long and complicated path but our personal commitment is to be with you every  step of the way, providing clear, professional and timely legal advice on your prescription drug malpractice or negligence lawsuit.
