Common Medication Errors
If you or a family member has been injured by a medication or prescription error, our attorneys can help. Our medical malpractice lawyers help people who have been injured by medication mistakes. Common drug errors include:
- Prescription drug overdose
- Dosage error
- Wrong drugs administered
- Unanticipated drug interactions
- Missing allergies to immunizations
- Pharmacy error
Such errors can be caused by poor handwriting or negligent inattention to patients, or they can be caused by the negligent failure of a hospital or clinic to establish safeguards against mistakes, to properly administer anesthesia, to take complete medical histories, to inquire about existing allergies, or to monitor blood medication levels. Medication mistakes can lead to brain injury, birth related injury, anaphylactic shock, heart attack, stroke, bleeding, and death.
