Houston Medication Error Attorneys

Medication Errors Can Have a Detrimental Impact on Your Life

Our society has become dependent on medications for an “easy fix” to what may be severe health problems. This has led to many doctors over-prescribing pills and even making a “side business” out of handing out prescriptions for pain medications. When this results in addiction, serious side effects or death, doctors should be held accountable.

Leading the Charge Against “Pill Mills”

Tommy Hastings of Hastings Law Firm P.C. has helped close down at least one of these so-called “pill-mill” clinics where doctors hand out prescriptions in exchange for cash, regardless of medical need. These “pill mills” take advantage of unfortunate addiction and help increase medical costs, crime and poverty. His success in this and other medical malpractice cases throughout Texas has earned him the respect of his peers, of his clients and of the community at large. He has helped his clients obtain millions of dollars in compensation for the harm done to them.

Our law firm is here to help you. We welcome you in to a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere, where everyone gets to know you and cares about what happens to you and your family. While some may believe our relaxed attitude is too informal, we feel that it helps us think differently about you and your case. By establishing that one-to-one relationship with you, we have more vested in your case and work harder to see it succeed.

Medications and Their Potential Hazards

Many doctors are happy to charge a co-pay just to write a prescription for someone, whether or not he or she truly needs the prescribed drug. Other times, doctors may mistakenly prescribe the wrong medication. Unfortunately, this can result in a patient experiencing serious side effects, negative drug interactions, drug overdose and death.

The Most Commonly Over-Prescribed Medications Include:

  • Xanax
  • Narcotics
  • Norco
  • Hydrocodone
  • Lortab
  • Relaxation and anxiety medications
  • OxyContin

Our Houston attorneys know how to look for potential medication errors and how to hold doctors accountable for their mistakes. We will seek full and fair compensation on your behalf.
