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.

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.
