Coral Gables Pharmacy Negligence

Thanks to strict zoning laws, Coral Gables, a city close to the bustle of Miami, has quiet and clean streets that attract visitors and residents. Although Coral Gables has a vibrant downtown and the Alhambra Circle financial district, it also has scenic roads, such as Coral Way. Known as the “City Beautiful,” this community is known for being pedestrian friendly.

Coral Gables also has a great medical system and pharmacists play a very important role in that medical system. They take prescriptions, provide medical advice, inform patients about medications, check patient records, label medications, and dispense sometimes very powerful drugs. Pharmacists are carefully trained to ensure that they can do all these tasks safely. However, when pharmacists are negligent or reckless in their duties, serious injury can occur. If you have been injured by a pharmacy error and want answers, you can always contact the Flaxman Law Group to get legal advice.
