Were you harmed by taking prescription medication?
Today’s medication has the power to save lives and treat diseases that were once untreatable. Medication errors in the dosage and administration of medicine, however, can have devastating effects on patients. If you or a loved one has been injured due to a prescription, it is important to consult with an experienced medical malpractice lawyer.
Medication errors are one of the most common forms of medical malpractice
Prescription problems can occur for a number of reasons, including mistakes by physicians, nurses, pharmacists, anesthesiologists and other medical professionals. Examples of pharmaceutical errors include:
- Giving the wrong dosage
- Giving the wrong medication
- Failure to account for harmful drug interactions
- Failure to screen the patient for allergies
- Failure to account for harmful reactions with food
