When the wrong medication is prescribed, the wrong dose is administered, or any other mistake is made in relation to a prescription or even over-the-counter drug given to a patient, this can have catastrophic results. Medication errors can cause serious side effects and injuries and can even lead to the wrongful death of a patient.

We fight for what’s right: the payment of full compensation to injured patients and families who have lost loved ones due to medical professionals’ failures to provide standard care.

Why Medication Errors Occur

The specific reason for any unique medication error will only be revealed after a thorough investigation. When we take on cases of this kind, we work with experts who can help us uncover negligence and present evidence in a clear way that any jury can understand. This is essential if we are to recover maximum compensation for our clients.

Some examples of medication errors include:

  • Prescribing unsafe medications
  • Off-label prescription of a drug
  • Dangerous drug interactions
  • Prescribing a drug to which a patient has a known allergy
  • Prescribing a drug known to create adverse reactions in certain types of patients (patients with diabetes, high blood pressure, etc.)
  • Administering the wrong dose of a medicine
  • Prescribing the wrong medicine
  • Diagnostic errors that lead to the wrong medicine or dose

It only takes a single act of carelessness or negligence to leave a patient seriously injured. Doctors are held to a high standard for a reason, and our New York City medication error lawyers can work to prove that this standard of care has been violated, which led to your injuries.
