Today’s pharmaceuticals are powerful. They can heal, but they can also kill. Many medications can have unwanted side effects, particularly if they are given to a person by mistake. There is little room for error when it comes to medical providers and pharmacies doing their jobs properly.
Most medication errors take one of two forms, both of which can be harmful or fatal: 1) the administration of the wrong medication or 2) the administration of the wrong dose of the right medication. Doctors, nurses and pharmacists may all make medication mistakes that cause injury or death. In any clinical or pharmacy setting, both of these types of errors are negligent and inexcusable. Doctors, nurses and pharmacies may all contribute to medication errors. Victims have the right to sue for compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, wrongful death and other damages.
