Medication Allergic Reaction and Side Effect Lawyers
Medical Malpractice Claims for Allergic Reactions
When a medical care provider has acted negligently, causing you to suffer adverse reactions or unexpected side effects, you could experience ongoing medical complications. Serious medical complications can quickly snowball and ultimately cost you your health and financial security. When a medical professional’s negligent actions have left you hurting, you may be able to file an injury claim to recover compensation for your losses.
Your medical provider should seek to treat your condition and avoid further complications through the course of treatment. When prescribing new medications, physicians must take into account your entire medical record. If you have a documented allergy yet a doctor prescribes you a drug which you are allergic to, you may be entitled to compensation.
Successfully recovering compensation can be an arduous process. When pursuing a malpractice claim, it is essential to show that your care provider did not take all reasonable precautions in preventing your adverse reaction. Doctors and other medical professionals have a duty to those under their care to make decisions in their patient’s best interests.

Allergic Reaction and Side Effects Cases We Handle
Suffering from an allergic reaction or side effect alone is not enough to file a malpractice claim. To file a claim, your medical care provider must have been negligent when prescribing your medication. If you have a documented allergy to a drug in your medical history, and you were prescribed this harmful medication, oversight could qualify as negligence on your care provider’s part. Another example of negligence may occur when a doctor prescribes risky medicine instead of a safer one. Doctors must provide their patients with a standard level of care when they fail to satisfy this standard; they put their patients’ lives at risk. When representing your claim, your lawyer will look at the following factors:
- Disregarding Medical History – your medical record showing a documented allergy, prescriptions, and documentation of the harm you suffered. An experienced lawyer will help you gather this evidence and present it in legal proceedings.
- Failure to Inform – To file a claim regarding a side effect, you must show that you were not adequately warned of the potentially dangerous effects of the drug. If your physician, pharmacist, and medication paperwork or packaging did not inform you of a drug’s possible side effects and you experienced a side effect, you may be able to file a side effect claim.
- Pharmacy Oversight – When your physician orders medication for you, a breakdown in communication between your doctor and your pharmacist may ultimately be to blame for your injuries. While your doctor may warn against possible allergic reactions, the pharmacy may overlook these crucial details, ultimately supplying you with dangerous medication.
Every case is different, and there are many medications with many possible side effects, it is essential to consult with a legal professional to determine if filing a claim is your best course of action.
If someone you know has died as a result of an allergic reaction or side effect, you may be able to file a Massachusetts wrongful death claim.
