Medication Errors Cause Serious Side Effects And Claim Lives
According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), approximately 1.3 million Americans suffer injury as a result of medication errors every year. Ambiguity in product names, poor communication, carelessness, and lack of knowledge or training may all contribute to prescription errors. These can cause serious side effects and can claim patients’ lives.
If you or a loved one were injured (or worse) due to a medication error, Spohrer Dodd Trial Attorneys is ready to help you seek the compensation you need and deserve.
Common Examples Of Medication Errors
Our firm is currently investigating cases for patients who have suffered harm as a result of:
- Dosage errors (too much or too little of a medication provided)
- Failure to inform/educate a patient about a medication and its side effects
- Wrong medication prescribed or administered
- Administering a medication when the patient has a known allergy
- Harmful drug interactions
- Improper monitoring of a patient after the medication is prescribed/administered
- Failure to properly diagnose a patient prior to prescribing medication
The at-fault party could be a doctor, nurse, pharmacist or anyone else who administers prescription drugs in a medical context.
