Harmful Prescription Errors

Patients have a right to expect the prescription medication given to them by healthcare professionals to be beneficial to their health. Unfortunately, doctors, nurses, and other healthcare workers can be prone to human error, and sometimes patients are prescribed the wrong medication, or the right medication in dangerous amounts. The victims of medication errors may be entitled to financial compensation to repay them for expensive medical bills, lost wages, and the other costs.

If you or someone you love has been injured because of medication prescribed by a doctor, it may be your right to seek damages.

Common Medication Errors

There are a number of different ways in which healthcare providers can give you unsafe prescription medication. Some of the most common include:

  • A doctor inadvertently prescribing you a medication to which you are allergic
  • A pharmacist incorrectly reading or filing a prescription
  • A doctor's handwriting makes it difficult to read and interpret a prescription
  • A pharmacist mistakenly gives you another patient's prescription

Being dosed with the wrong drug or the wrong amount of a drug can have serious consequences, including long-term injury or even death.
