Prescription Errors: Do You Have Grounds For A Lawsuit?

Types Of Prescription Errors

Prescription mistakes, which are a form of medical professional malpractice, fall into two main categories — dispensing the wrong medication or giving the patient the wrong dosage. Our prescription error lawyers aggressively pursue negligence cases against doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other health care professionals for:

  • Prescribing the wrong medication
  • Administering an incorrect dose
  • Failing to assess potentially dangerous interactions with other medications
  • Not recognizing negative side effects
  • Failing to fill a prescription correctly

The health risks of prescription mistakes can be catastrophic. Some may result in cognitive problems such as difficulty thinking, insomnia or sleepiness. Others may involve more serious complications and result in a heart attack, stroke or even death.

As your lawyers, we will carefully investigate the circumstances of your case. This includes consulting with medical experts and pharmacology specialists who can explain the toxicity of the medication or dosage received, as well as the long-term results of the error.
