Medication Errors Can Have Disastrous Consequences. Our Morris County, New Jersey Lawyer Can Help.
Unfortunately, though perhaps unsurprisingly, there are various mistakes physicians and pharmacists can make when it comes to prescribing, administering, and distributing medications. Just some of the most common types of medication errors we’ve seen over the years are as follows:
- Prescribing the wrong type of medication
- Prescribing the wrong dosage of a medication
- Failing to account for a patient’s medical history/allergies
- Administering the wrong medication
- A pharmacist neglecting to follow a doctor’s prescription
Is it Medical Malpractice?
Before bringing a medical malpractice claim, you should understand that you won’t automatically have a valid claim just because a type of medication didn’t improve your condition, or even made your condition worse. Similarly, every time a patient has an allergic reaction, it doesn’t mean it was their doctor’s fault. However, if we can prove that your physician fell below the medical standard of care by acting in a way that a reasonable physician wouldn’t have and you were harmed as a result, we may have a valid claim.
For example, if a physician prescribed a person a far higher dosage of medication than any other physician would have reasonably prescribed and the person suffered an overdose as a result, they or their loved ones should have a valid claim. Don’t proceed without a skilled Morris County, New Jersey medical malpractice lawyer in your corner.
As long as we can prove you were harmed as a result of medical malpractice, you may recover compensation to help offset some of the physical, financial, and even emotional burdens you’ve sustained as a result of your injuries. This can include pain and suffering, the loss of enjoyment of life, the cost of medical treatment, funeral expenses & other costs associated with wrongful death claims (if applicable), and more.
