Medical malpractice in the area of prescribing and administering medication is very serious. A person may sustain serious injury or may even lose his or her life due to a medication error. At times, the drug itself is defective or dangerous. Other times, a doctor, pharmacist or nurse may administer the wrong medicine, or the right medicine in the wrong amount. Ranging from headaches and other minor side effects all the way to internal bleeding or death, medication errors are the most prevalent form of medical malpractice today.

Many doctors and other medical professionals are overworked. They have too many patients and not enough time to treat all of them. In these circumstances, it is possible that a patient's chart will be overlooked and he or she will be prescribed a medicine that he or she has a known allergy to or that will violently react with another medication that has already been administered. A nurse may mistakenly pick up the wrong medicine off the shelf or may administer the wrong dosage amount while in rush to see other patients. Plain inexperience or human error may also account for malpractice involving medication and prescriptions. Call our firm today if you need help in your medication error injury case!
