Injury or Death Resulting from Medication Errors
Thanks to modern medicine, powerful medications have the potential to heal and cure illness, injury, or disease. Unfortunately, these same medications also have the potential to cause great harm. Medical professionals have an extreme duty of caution in prescribing and administering them.
Our accomplished medical malpractice lawyers have handled a wide range of medication error cases including:
- Wrong dosage (overdose or inadequate dosage)
- Wrong drug (prescriber’s or pharmacy’s error)
- Failure to monitor patients after administering potent drugs
- Failure to watch for known side effects
- Failure to ask about or check for known drug allergies
The outcome of any medication error can be devastating, particularly for elderly patients or infants, or for patients with known co-morbidities (e.g., heart disease, lung conditions). Drug errors can trigger major events such as heart attack, stroke, hypoxic brain injury, kidney or liver failure, coma or death.
