We rely on medications to fight disease and help keep us healthy. But what happens when a medication error results in serious or even fatal harm? Thousands of people and their families are forced to deal with this question every year and, sadly, many of them never get real justice. Medication errors happen more often than most patients know. A study recently found over 100,000 medication errors occur in hospitals and at pharmacies annually. This is why you need an experienced medical malpractice attorney on your side as soon as possible following injury from a medication.

Types of Medication Errors

The most common medication error is improper dosage. Yet, medication errors also happen when wrong medications are given, when there are delays in providing a patient with timely doses of the right medication and the administration of improper doses of appropriate medicine. Most medication errors luckily do not cause permanent damages. Unfortunately, many do cause serious injury and death. This can include anesthesia and other potentially deadly medications and often results in serious injury. In addition to improper dosage, medication errors may include:

  • Poor administration
  • Wrong medication
  • Failure to check for allergies
  • Failure to check for contraindications

All of these errors can result in complications, additional medical expenses, and even a loss of life. If you or a loved one has suffered these damages from a medication error, Attorney Lipsky is here to help.

When you suffer injury from a medication error, there may be several liable parties. These can include hospitals and their staff, nurses, physicians, and pharmaceutical companies.
