At a time when cell phones are everywhere and social media brings us the details of strangers’ lives in real time, we’re more concerned about privacy than ever before. And for good reason: in the wrong hands, sensitive information can be used for fraud, identity theft, and blackmail.

Florida residents may need to be especially concerned. Florida, especially South Florida, was top in the nation for the number of identity theft and fraud-related complaints in 2014. That year, there were 1,007 complaints of fraud per 100,000 Floridians. About 37,000 Florida residents reported being victims of identity theft that year. In fact, identity theft is such a problem in Florida that the Hollywood police department has launched an economic crimes unit to deal with identity theft and other related crimes.

Medicine and all medical devices are created to help improve the lives of patients, but unfortunately in some cases defective design, poor testing, or other negligence creates unsafe products.

Unfortunately, while most patients get the right medication in the right doses, medical mistakes in Hollywood and Florida occur every year, and some of these involve serious situations where a patient is injured or even killed because they have been given the wrong medication or the wrong dose.

Medication is meant to make patients better, but unfortunately medical malpractice in Miami and other Florida cities as well as medication error can conspire to cause accidental overdoses, dangerous drug interactions, and allergic reactions. In some cases, drug manufacturers are to blame for releasing dangerous drugs to Miami and Florida patients. In many cases, medication problems are preventable and could be prevented if we could:

1) Ensure better information distribution.

Many patients are overwhelmed with information. They may not be given much information about a new medication from a doctor but may be given pages of technical drug information from the pharmacy. Some of the information may be difficult to understand and some may be contradictory. Some information is issued by drug manufacturers and some by pharmacies, which means it may contradict itself or be written in technical language that is difficult to understand.

2) Create better communication between patients, doctors, and pharmacies.

Sometimes, pharmacy negligence cases in Miami and other Florida communities occur because there is a breakdown in communication. Doctors may misinterpret information that patients give them, resulting in misdiagnosis and other issues. In some Miami area hospitals and clinics, patient care is in the hands of many medical experts and there may be miscommunication between individuals or even incorrect information entered into a patient’s chart. Sometimes, the pharmacy cannot read a doctor’s prescription or a doctor enters incorrect information into a prescription. Clearer and more transparent communication between all parties could reduce instances of medication error and misdiagnosis.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
