Medication Errors and Medical Malpractice

Medication Errors and Medical Malpractice

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

Medication errors are one of the most common causes of medical malpractice claims. Our Newburgh medical malpractice lawyer has years of experience handling these cases, and Mr. Rock knows how to defend your rights for even the most difficult cases.

Typically, the cause of medication errors is dispensing either an incorrect dosage or the wrong medication altogether. This is often the result of negligence or incompetence on behalf of the doctor or the pharmacist.

You may need to file a medical malpractice claim against the doctor when:

  • The wrong medication is prescribed
  • An incorrect dosage is given
  • The doctor’s written prescription is illegible and results in administration errors

Sometimes even if the doctor clearly prescribes the right medication, the pharmacist can err due to:

  • Mislabeling or insufficient prescription labeling
  • Interchanging similar looking drugs
  • Oversight of harmful drug interactions
  • Failing to warn patients about potential drug allergies

Regardless of how the prescription error occurs, the effects can be devastating for you and your loved ones. Mr. Rock understands how these medical malpractice cases can impact your life, not only with immediate damages, but with long-term effects too. That’s why Mr. Rock makes it his priority to defend your rights and pursue the justice you deserve.
