Nationwide Representation in Medical Malpractice Claims
Errors involving the administration and prescription of medicine are the most common forms of medical malpractice in hospitals and pharmacies. In most instances, medication errors involve administering either the wrong medicine or the wrong dosage of the correct medicine. In addition, a patient may be prescribed or administered a medicine that he or she has a known allergy to. Negligence in reviewing a patient’s charts, misreading a doctor’s handwriting on a prescription or a failure to double-check what medicine and what dosage is being administered are usually the causes of medication errors.

Proving Medical Malpractice in Medication Error Cases
In a hospital, sometimes the only indication of a medication error may be the administration of another medicine or medical treatment to counteract the effects of the original medicine that was erroneously administered. Medical records may not contain all the information about what medication was ordered and given to the patient, and a lengthy investigation may be required to uncover what actually happened. For this reason, you need an attorney with the time, energy and resources needed to dedicate to your case. With the right representation, you may be able to recover monetary damages for medical care, emotional trauma, pain and suffering, and more.
