Patients place incalculable trust in their pharmacists, medical care providers, and the pharmaceutical industry as a whole, and most of the time, this is not an issue. Every year, however, countless people suffer from errors with their medication, which can result in everything from painful side effects to death.
There are many ways a medication error can occur: a doctor’s handwriting being illegible and therefore the script is filled incorrectly with the wrong dose or wrong medication, a doctor may not take into account a patient’s full medical history, a pharmacy assistant may mistakenly give the wrong medication because they are overworked, or a pharmaceutical company may make the packaging of two different doses of the same product so similar a doctor or pharmacist gives the wrong dose on accident. It’s incredibly easy for a medication error to be made by negligence in the medical community.
Have you suffered from a medication error?
If you answered yes, and believe the error was caused by negligent behavior on behalf of your medical provider, you should contact a qualified attorney as soon as possible.
