Medications are an integral part of most courses of medical treatment. From the antibiotic your child receives to help him or her combat the flu to the anesthesia necessary for surgery, we depend on drugs to help us get and stay healthy. What we do not often think about is the chain of people involved in our use of those drugs:

  • Doctors
  • Nurses
  • Pharmacists
  • Anesthetists

These people are human and they commit errors. Medication errors can cause serious injuries and death. Some of the common types of medication errors include:

  • Overdose
  • Under-dose
  • Mixing medications
  • Prescribing or supplying the wrong medicine
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Missed allergies
  • Wrongful death claims

Creating accountability for the damage done by a medication error calls for skilled and experienced representation that has successfully handled such cases for others.
