When Prescription Errors Cause Harm, Contact An Attorney

What causes a doctor to prescribe—or a pharmacist to dispense—the wrong drug or dosage? In some cases, a doctor fails to screen for allergies or contraindications. Sometimes, a pharmacist mixed up orders or delivered the wrong doses. The source of the error may be as basic as misunderstood handwriting or written instructions from a doctor to a pharmacy. It may be a case of drug interactions. Whatever happened and whatever harm resulted, a timely, accurate case evaluation is the first step toward deciding what to do next.

Contact our experienced medical malpractice team today for help if you or a loved one suffered an injury due to a prescription error.

Who Is Responsible For A Prescription Error?

There are a number of medical professionals who can be responsible for injuries caused by a prescription error. Indeed, delivery of medications to patients sometimes involves a chain of health care professionals, including:

  • The drug manufacturer
  • The prescribing physician
  • The pharmacist and pharmacy
  • A nurse in a hospital or nursing home, in some cases

Prescription errors and medication errors may be the responsibility of one or more of these.

Attorneys at our firm help potential clients determine whether they have valid injury claims. If the answer is yes, we are prepared to bring compelling medical malpractice claims on our clients’ behalf. A successful claim or lawsuit can bring necessary financial resources to cover additional medical care, replace lost wages, and acknowledge pain and suffering.
