Attorneys Handling Negligent Medication Prescription Lawsuits
Attorneys Pursuing Negligence Cases For Over-Prescribing Of Medications
People who have surgery or who have chronic pain frequently consult with their doctors about pain management. Doctors who are trying to establish their practices may tend toward over-prescribing medications in order to build their businesses. Unfortunately, this frequently leads to the patients becoming addicted and continuing to schedule appointments to get more prescriptions. The more addicted they become, the greater the risk of more serious complications, including overdose and death.
This predatory use of patient pain, whether deliberate or not, is a serious problem. If you or a loved one has suffered harm from over-prescribing of medications, talk to a lawyer about your options.

- Muscle relaxants
- Psychiatric medications
